"Almost! Almost!" - my twins *love* this book!
on February 13, 2012
My twin daughters received this book as a Christmas present and while it is a wonderful book in the abstract, it is simply outstanding for twins, especially identical twins. The pictures are gorgeous, with beautifully done winter landscapes and fun creatures populating every page. The message is where this book really shines though.
"Almost, almost, but not quite." The story of the two similar-looking birds as they explore their winter-y world is filled with educational fun. They 'meet' snowflakes, trees, and other denizens of their forest home. This is a perfect book for twins in that it highlights that even though they look so similar (especially useful for same-gender twins, though I suspect it is also a nice book for any pair, or more!) they have differences. It is a nice way to talk to your twins about their special similarity and also their defining individuality.
This is an excellent book to have as part of a library of books for your kids. I additionally (in particular) highly recommend it for any parents of twins!
