Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-In bouncy rhyme, Lewison highlights things that come in pairs-a bird's wings, bicycle wheels, and a smiling child's hands, ears, feet, and, finally, sibling: And twins, as you can plainly see,/are just as two as two can be. Aspects of this special relationship are briefly mentioned as the youngsters appear in matching clothes, pursue individual interests at school, play together, and end up in bed with chicken pox. While there is nothing new here and some of the phrases border on the banal (Twins are two-er than anyone./Two times the hugs, two times the fun), the rhythmic text reads aloud smoothly. Saturated with deep hues and painted with a whimsical touch, the artwork carries the story along as two curly haired cuties interact with one another and pursue typical toddler activities. With their round heads, pinpoint eyes, and expressive mouths, the characters are appealing, and the nonstop motion and humorous details in the illustrations maintain interest. One exuberant spread shows the tykes zooming down a slide, their faces glowing with excitement and their arms raised high, while a sneaker flies off a foot and into the pale blue sky. Consider this frothy offering for deeper collections or where tales about twins are perennially popular.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal

From Booklist

PreS. The first third of this picture book names different things that express the number two (hands, bicycle wheels, bluebird wings), but after the focus settles on the "two-ness" of twins, it never wavers. The well-cadenced, rhyming text celebrates the good things that come in pairs and, in particular, the good times of twinship: playing, helping, sharing. Reflecting the tone of the text as well as illustrating the particulars mentioned, the airy, exuberant illustrations make even chicken pox seem fun, as long as it's shared. The bright paintings vary in composition, size, and placement on the white pages, but all have a spontaneity that will charm children and their parents. Fun for reading aloud to one, or two, or many more. See Voake on p.52 for another twin title. Carolyn Phelan

We bought this for our twins before their first birthday. They haven't really 'gotten it' yet, but since the birthday cakes at the end of the story have 3s on them, I suspect they'll catch on eventually (they are only 1, after all!).

I appreciated that this book did a good job of portraying twins as just like any other kids, while at the same time highlighting all sorts of special and unique features (built in playmate, how special 'two' is, the fun things that can happen on your birthday, etc). The book also did an excellent job of not 'pigeonholing' identical twins into a life of forced similarity. The twins in the story clearly have their own tastes and styles even though they look quite alike. In addition, the pictures are very cute and the rhyming is well done. It is an easy book to read (and read, and read!).

The book claims to also be perfect for children that aren't twins, but eh, that might be a stretch. Not in a negative way, rather that this book is *far* more relevant to twins, or the siblings of twins (or the parents of twins!). I would most certainly purchase this book for any other sets of twins I know.

This is a bright colouful book about what TWINS get up to. It has hard pages which means it is good for the younger children who are still at the stage of putting everything in their mouth. I bought this for our friends TWINS 1st birthday. Im sure it will become one of their favourite books.

I rec'd this gift for my twins and then purchased it for two other sets of twins. The story line is cute and doesn't just focus on the similarities of twins as most books have a tendency.

My twins love this book. I got this as a shower gift and they are now 2 years old and are loving it. Not too wordy for young ones and the pictures are full of things they can discover - like two snails almost hidden on several pages. Highly recommended as a parent you will like it too.

I purchased this for my one year old twins as it is a board book. The verse is okay, but not as easy to follow as a Seuss book is. The illustration of this book was too open ended, with more of an abstract feel to the pictures instead of clean, closed lines. For my 15 month olds, it was too busy and lost their attention from the start. I am sure though, like my beginning title, that as they grow older ans start to read themselves , they will appreciate the pictures and message.
