Very cute book!
on September 6, 2011
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.
