Have you searched for this book on TPT? I did and did not find anything! Here is a great resource that is quick, easy and meaningful to correlate with the fabulous book The Story About Ping!
There are a variety of synonym cards - big, small and blank - that you can have students post as you read, you can find alternate synonyms to each of them, find them in the story, etc. There is a literary element section focusing on Problem, Resolution, Characters and Setting. There is a fairly complex 9 step sequencing activity with answer key and 4 writing options.
