"With spare verse and a quiet, winter landscape, Baker (LMNO Peas) presents an ode to uniqueness, particularly as it pertains to nature.... Baker’s digital artwork conveys a sense of painterly softness and warmth, and children should appreciate the gentle self-esteem boost that comes with the reassurance that they are one of a kind."
--Publishers Weekly, October 3, 2011
*"The poetry and pictures here express the idea of individuality with an irrepressible, childlike sense of joy. Accessible to very young children, the verse reads aloud beautifully, with just a phrase or two on each spread. Created with subdued colors and strong composition, the double-page digital illustrations create a powerful sense of place and season while offering details for young children to notice and talk about. Baker’s seamless combination of well-worded rhymes, evocative landscapes, and playful protagonists make this a standout title for reading aloud, especially in winter."
--Booklist, November 1, 2011, *STAR
"A cheerful celebration of individuality, with clever rhymes and engaging art sure to appeal to little ones."
--San Francisco Chronicle, December 25, 2011
"In a thoughtfully structured picture book, two little red birds explore a snowy landscape, while a rhyming text draws listeners into looking carefully at the pictures to find similarities and differences between things.... Baker includes many funny scenes, with the mischievous birds stockpiling snowballs as a fox walks warily by in one spread and fishing with berry-bait in another."
--The Horn Book Magazine, January/February 2012
“Spare, rhymed couplets, quiet and gentle, tell the story, while the digitally produced artwork, bright and cheerful, takes off winter's chill….This lovely testimony to how special and unique each of us is will enhance a preschooler's self-esteem.”
—The Plain Dealer (Cleveland, OH), March 4, 2012

"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!
I also like the story about things being alike and different.
Kids age 1 - 100 would like it and both boys and girls will like this book.
I'm giving this book 5 stars - I love it! It's the best book I've read today!
Review by Young Mensan Eliot, age 5
Book provided by publisher
This is one of the first books he memorized and read out loud to himself.
We got the board book version which is a great size. The hardback paper page one from the library was much bigger but he loves either one. We had to get him his own copy :)

Man, I wish I could identify exactly why I was so meh about this book. Technically, it's a fine story. It's just...lacking.
