Overview

Children love to hear the stories about what they were like and all the wonderful, amazing, interesting, and funny things they did when they were 2-year-olds. They have endless questions about the year they were 2.
Why do 2-year-olds say "NO!" a lot?

Why do they love to talk to babies?

Why do they have tantrums?

Why do 2-year-olds say, "When Mommy comed home?" instead of "When's Mommy coming home?"

Why do 2-year-olds feel so proud when they can finally use a potty?

Do they know that sharing a toy is a nice thing to do?

Can they brush their teeth by themselves?

The award-winning team who created Hello Benny! What It's Like To Be A Baby and Go! Go! Maria! What It's Like To Be 1 have created a third picture book for their stellar series, Growing Up Stories -- books that tell enchanting stories and present fascinating facts about the first five years of life.

Sweet Jasmine, Nice Jackson tells the story of 2-year-old twins and celebrates their third year of life -- Jackson putting boots on the wrong feet, Jasmine having a tantrum at the shoe store, Jackson sticking a flower in his potty, Jasmine putting marshmallows in Jackson's hair, Jackson pretending to shave, and Jasmine calling a friend "Stupid!" Sweet Jasmine, Nice Jackson tells the remarkable story of how 2-year-olds "grow up."

Combining a beautifully told story with a myriad of fascinating facts about 2-year-olds -- and about twins -- Harris and Emberley have created another timeless book for children to enjoy and for families to share together.

Two-year-old twins -- just like other two-year-olds -- are terrific! They love to talk, laugh, andplay with a friend. They love to say "NO!" a lot too. They are always trying to find out all they can about almost everything. That's why they love to ask so many questions. And that's why they love to look at books, squish grapes, stomp through puddles, dig in the mud, pour water, scribble with crayons, and climb anything they can.

Jasmine and Jackson celebrate the year they are two by learning to do new things and showing their independence. Includes nonfiction information about two-year-olds and twins.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The terrible and terrific twos get their due in Growing Up Stories: Sweet Jasmine, Nice Jackson: What It's Like to Be 2 And to Be Twins! by Robie Harris, illus. by Michael Emberley, with a double entendre that covers both the age and the sibling duo. The twin stars chatter with each other, throw tantrums, hug, play and learn to use the toilet. Like other books in the series, the story runs alongside explanations of the characters' actions, targeted at older siblings. (Aug.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-The third in a series, this book presents a delightful mix of story, factual text, and endearing artwork. Harris describes scenes from the lives of toddlers Jasmine and Jackson as they engage in everyday activities, encounter new experiences, and reach important milestones. Each spread also contains additional text that uses simple language to explain why the twins-and most two-year-olds-behave as they do. For example, Jackson attempts to dress himself, refusing help even when he puts two feet into one pants leg. The author points out that toddlers are trying to be more independent and that they "think dressing and undressing themselves is fun and feel so proud when they can finally do it-no matter- how they look." In another instance, Jasmine's meltdown at the shoe store is elucidated through information about why tantrums happen and how siblings can help to diffuse them. Other issues include language acquisition, emotional and social development, moving into a bed, and potty training. Emberley's charming watercolor, pastel, and pen-and-ink illustrations depict a loving African-American family and a cast of red-cheeked toddlers. The paintings are filled with action, homey details, and many interesting faces. This guide to two-year-olds and their world is a great choice for sharing with older siblings; the fact that it features twins is an added bonus.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
