Об авторе

Arlene Mosel (1921-1996) first heard the story of Tikki Tikki Tembo as a child. When she grew up, she shared this wonderful tale with countless children, including her own. Because so many young listeners responded enthusiastically, she decided to write her own retelling, and Tikki Tikki Tembo became her first book for children. The book was named an American Library Association Notable Book and won the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. In 1997, The New York Times named it one of the best 50 children's books of the previous 50 years. Mosel was also the author of The Funny Little Woman, which won the 1973 Caldecott Medal for Blair Lent's illustrations and was recognized as an Honor Book by the Hans Christian Andersen International Children's Book Awards. Mosel was an associate professor of library science at Case Western Reserve University. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Mosel died in Indianapolis in 1996.

    Read this for the 100 Best Children's Books and have to say I was disappointed. Perhaps this hasn't aged as well or I just didn't "get it."

    A Chinese folktale about why Chinese people have short names. It is said that the first born son used to have a really long name but when that character in the story falls down a well it takes so long for his younger brother to spit out his name that he almost perishes.

    Excellent story which I enjoyed a little more than my honourable first born :-)
    Also as it runs twice the funny moments come twice. Highly recommended!

    If this means anything at all, I can remember the older boy's name and often say it to people. I can't say if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but the story is wonderful.

    Tikki Tikki Tembo is a story of an old Chinese folktale. It was a custom for father and mothers in China to give their first and honored sons a great long name, but seconds sons were given hardly a name at all. A mother lived on a small mountain with her two sons. Her first son was named Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo, which meant "the most wonderful thing in the world, and her second son was named Chang. Chang and Tikki tikki tembo loved playing near the well, but their mother always said to be careful or they could fall in. One day Chang fell in and Tikki tikki tembo ran to his mother to help him. They got the old man with the ladder to get him out and he took no time to recover. Months later, Tikki tikki tembo fell in. Chang ran to his mother to explain what happened, but his brother's name was so long, he could barely get it out. His mother said to go find the old man with the ladder. He found the old man, but he had the same problem, his brother's name was so long that he could barely get it out. They finally got Tikki tikki tembo out of the well, but it took him days to reccover. To this day, the Chinese have thought it wise to give all of their children short names, instead of great long ones. As an activity, each student could write out their own name as if they were Tikki tikki tembo, and for that day, each student would go by their long name.

    I really enjoyed this book as a child, though reading it again and reading several other reviews, it is actually rather racist. The author says it is a retelling of a Chinese folktale, but Tikki Tikki Tembo's exhaustively long name doesn't actually mean anything in Chinese and instead plays off of how funny the Chinese language sounds to Westerners. It is a very cute story, but seeing as the setting is Ancient China yet the language is inaccurate, the setting puts children off and gives them an inaccurate idea of China and its people. Arlene Mosel is an inauthentic author as well, as she is from Ohio and is of no Asian descent. It would be much more beneficial to students to use actual Chinese folktales that celebrate Chinese culture.

    This legend is about why Chinese people always give their children short names. This legend describes two brothers that both fall into a well and need to be saved. When the older brother, named Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo falls into the well, Chang has to run all around town asking for help and it takes him so long that his older brother nearly dies because he can not move quickly enough. This book explains why Chinese people use short names with their children.

    This is a children's folktale about two brothers and the first born, the honored son, gets a very long name and the second born a very short name. The mother believes the first born son is more important. The younger boy fell into the well and his brother Tikki Tikki Tembo with the long name has to run and get help. The same thing happens to happen to Tikki Tikki Tembo. It took even longer for Chong to get his mother's attention because his name is so long and complicated and that of the old man with the ladder who had helped get Chong out of the well. He finally gets help but Tikki Tikki Tembo was there so long he was sick for a long time. That is why the Chinese usually give their children short names instead of long ones. The illustrations are drawn in ink and colored in with water colors. The colors are pretty dull and only a few different colors are used. Teachers could use this book to talk about names, favoritism, or what folktales are. Teachers could have students write their own folktales about how they got their names.

    This book is a classic Chinese legend about a young boy who almost drowns in a well because his brother cannot pronounce his very long and difficult name. It is a silly and entertaining read aloud that you can pair with teaching students about how names in other cultures have certain definitions or meanings. Students of all ages will laugh out loud when the teacher says "Tikki Tikki Tembo No Sa Rembo Chari Bari Ruchi Pip Peri Pembo". The main message in the story is to give readers a slight insight into Chinese culture. The illustrations are also beautifully done and express true Chinese art.

    I remembered being told this story when I was young. When I see a familiar story for my childhood, I like to pick it up and read it with grown-up eyes. I still giggled. Politeness isn't so important when your brother is drowning.

    I really liked reading this book. I found it to be a good story of being there for family and of feeling a sense of self. Tikki Tikki Tembo's extremely long name fits him perfectly as we see him be there for his brother to help rescue him. The illustrations in this picture are beautiful and show the readers a little bit into Chinese culture in how the homes and surrounding area look. We also learn about Chinese culture because personally I did not know that it was custom for Chinese parents to give their first born sons extremely long names. I think the author's message was to just be there for family when they need you most.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. The main message was to teach the students how people in china came to give their children shorter names. One reason I liked this book was because of the main characters name. When I was in elementary school and my teacher read this to the class, it was a game among the children to see who could memorize "Tikki Tikki Tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo" and say it along with the teacher while she was reading. The second reason I liked this book was because of how the brothers took care of each other. Even though the second brothers name was Chang, which meant "little or nothing", he still ran all over the place trying to save his brother who had fallen in the well. When I first read the book, I was scared that he would leave him in there because Tikki was clearly their mother's favorite son, but his love for his brother prevailed and they ended up saving each other.

    This story would definitely be fun to read aloud to a class, and also be fun for new readers! This book would be appropriate from kindergarten to second grade. I like this book because I can absolutely see children laugh and be engaged with this story. It also exposes the Chinese culture and art throughout the story, making it extra engaging. The little Tikki Tikki Tembo-No Sa Rembo-Chari Bari Ruchi-Pip Peri Pembo thought highly of himself for having such a long and prestigious name compared to his brother, Chang. Change fell in the well, and his brother was able to quickly get help from the Old Man with the ladder. However, when Tikki fell into the well, his brother had to take extra time explaining what happened and who needed the Old Man's help. The moral of the story is that sometimes having an important title can get you into trouble!

    A favorite from my childhood. I can still recite, Tikki Tikki Tembo's long name and can recall my sister's enthusiasm as she read this to me often at bedtime. A nice story of relationship between two brothers and the dynamics within a family and a culture. A memorable read.

    Summary: "Tikki Tikki Tembo" is a old Chinese folktale about two Chinese brothers who go against their mother's word. The boys' mother warns them of a well that will swallow them if they choose to go down it. The younger brother, Chang, is the first to fall into the well during play time. The older brother (Tikki Tikki Tembo) runs to tell their mother, who tells him to find the Old Man with the ladder. The younger brother, Chang, is finally saved. Not too long after however, the older brother falls into the well. The younger brother tries at first to tell his mother but is unable to speak his older brother's long name. He finally does, and runs to the Old Man who reluctantly lends the ladder out. The moral of the story is that the Chinese have short names because of this incident.Review: I really liked reading this Chinese folktale. It speaks a few different messages that can be picked up by the reader. The first, is that you should never go against your mother's word. The two brothers do this and fall victim to the well. Chang is able to be saved quickly, but Tikki Tikki Tembo is not. Chang is barely able to get out his older brother's name and thus there is much time before he is saved. The message here is that the Chinese all have short names. This would be a great addition to my library collection, especially during a multicultural lesson.

    Funny and interesting story. Beautiful illustrations in the Chinese style. Would recommend researching how to pronounce the names correctly before reading aloud to students. Good for discussion on respect of elders in Chinese societies.

    This book is essentially an origin myth about why Chinese names are so short. In the book, a boy and his brother are playing when the brother falls in the well. As he is trying to rescue him, and must repeat his brothers very long name so many times, we discover at the end too much time has passed and his brother has died in the well. I remember this story quite vividly from my childhood, finding it quite entertaining to say the brother's full name, Tikki Tikki Tembo-no Sa Rembo-chari Bari Ruchi-pip Peri Pembo. I also taught this story to my first grade class as part of our Passport lessons from China. I told several different versions of the story and we discussed how the story changed as a result of verbal storytelling. As an extension exercise I had them draw a picture that depicted their favorite part in the story. We also talked about other stories we knew that changed as a result of verbal storytelling and the differences between those versions. Lastly we played a game of telephone to demonstrate how things can change between one telling and another

    I liked this book because of the interesting aspect mentioned at the ending of the book. Initially, the author mentions how long names were given to the older children because they were honored and highly valued and short names were given to the younger children because they meant "little to nothing." I liked the language used in this book because of the repetitive pattern. At first, Tikki tikki tembo had to save Chang and he quickly did but when Chang had to save Tikki tikki tembo it was more of a struggle. Because of the initial way that the author described how Chang fell in the well made it seem like Tikki tikki tembo would be quickly saved also. I also enjoyed the organization of the story. As previously mentioned, the author made the wording almost identical with different names. This conspicuously implied that Tikki tikki tembo would have a safe rescue nevertheless Chang had difficultly saying his brother's name over and over again. Every time Chang mustered up the breath to say Tikki tikki tembo's full name, I wondered if he would be able to get it out right and essentially receive help. The big message of the story comes at the end when the readers are reminded of the first-born having long names and now realizing that it is more wise to give your children short names.

    Grade 1-4Traditional literatureTikki Tikki Tembo is an amusing piece of literature that does a good job of depicting the preference for first-born children in China. Since Tikki Tikki Tembo was the first born and favorite son he got the very ong honorable name Tikki Tikki Tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo. The second born son was named a much shorter and less honorable name, Chang. In the story both children fall into a well and are rescued. However, since Chang had such a shorter name it took less time to communicate that he had fallen. When Tikki Tikki Tembo fell into the well it took so long for Chang to tell his mother that Tikki Tikki Tembo almost drowned and took days for him to recover. In the end it turned out that Tikki Tikki Tembo's very long and honorable name almost cost him his life. The story ends by discussing Chinese tradition. On the last page the story says "And from that day to this the Chinese have always thought it wise to give all their children little, short names instead of great longs names." This story was enjoyable and I would recommend it to children of many ages. I especially like how the book created a story of why something came to be; why the Chinese use short names.

    I had mixed feelings about this book. It is based in rural China, and is a myth about a boy who almost drowns in a well because his brother cannot pronounce his name to ask for help. I don't think it is a great representation of Chinese culture, but the story is intriguing and the pictures are very unique.

    Short story about why Chinese families give their children short names. A story about two brothers that fall into a well and that need to be saved. Chang, the younger brother, has to run around and try to find people to save his brother with an incredibly long name. His name is so long and Chang has to repeat it so many times that his older brother almost dies in the well. But finally Tikki tikki tembo no sa rembo chari bari ruchi pip bari pembo was saved out of the well. I would read this in my classroom to show my students the use of repetition as humor, or if we were learning about myths from other countries. Genre: myth, folktale, modern fantasy

    In my opinion, Tikki Tikki Tembo is a decent book. One reason I enjoyed this book is because of the main characters name. When I was little, my mother would read the story to me and my older brother. I remember struggling to pronounce the long name of the main character “Tikki Tikki Tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo.” The main reason I liked this book was how the author depicted the relationship between the two brothers. The brothers take care of each other even if the younger brother is jealous of his older brother. The younger brother is named Chang, which meant “little nothing.” The book was a helpful tool in teaching kindness to me when I was little. Even though Chang had a shorter name he still found a ladder in order to get Tiki out of the well. The illustrations also add a vivid historical touch, depicting life in rural China. The main message of the story is to show how family is important.

    This is one of my favorites from when I was a child. I do a “Me Box” in the beginning of the year with my students and I fill a box with objects that describe me. This is always the book inside. My students beg me to read it many times throughout the year. It is a sweet story of two brothers in China, the first born having a long name because he is most honorable, and the second having a very short name because he is not as important as the first born son. The boys soon find out, that it is not always the best or safest thing to have a very long name, and by story’s end, we discover why the Chinese do not name their first born sons with extremely long names anymore. It is a fun book, that your children will begin to chant along with.

    In China long ago, the first son of a family received a very long name. Chang and his brother Tikki Tikki Tembo-no Sa Rembo-chari Bari Ruchi-pip Peri Pembo are playing by the well, despite their mother's warnings. When Tikki Tikki Tembo falls in, Chang finds himself running through town trying to find the right person to tell in time to save his brother. Repeating the long name time and time again leaves him out of breath. As he struggles to tell the old man with the ladder that his brother needs help, he starts to wonder if he'll make it back in time.I really enjoy this book. It's a lot of fun, especially as a read-aloud. I'm particularly fond of folk tales and origin myths, as well. They tend to have some of the most stylized illustrations, and TIkki Tikki Tembo is no exception. I think this book is best for a read-aloud, especially with young children, but the repetition makes it a good independent reading choice for early readers.
  • (5/5)
    A classic tale that tells us about a little boy who fell into a well! The boys name is so long that is elongates to rescue process as his full name must be said before he can be rescued. Tikki Tikki Tembo's rhyme is sure to get stuck in your head!

    I first heard this read in the library at our elementary school. Then I heard the recorded version and I loved it. I remember going home and telling my mom the whole story. That year in school I checked it out over and over and over again, until the librarian made me pick a different book. I recently found this in a box and it made my heart happy.
