Tikki Tikki Tembo

Maya's current favorite book to read is "Tikki Tikki Tembo." If you haven't read it before, it's about a little Chinese boy that has a great long name. The book explains why Chinese people often have very short little names with one syllable. It's a fun name to say and when reading the book you have to say it over and over. So...Maya has mastered it...can you say it too?



His name is: Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo
