Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Two little twins equal twice the love and laughter in this sweet, fresh picture book from Charlotte Doyle and illustrator Julia Gorton. Whether it's in the playroom with "two baby bottles, two baby chairs, two baby rattles, two big bears," outside on the swings, or sitting with Dad for a quiet read, these cheery babies make their parents' lives doubly exciting! But with all the antics and activities these girls share, Mom and Dad are always sure to provide two times the love for their happy family ("One baby. Baby two. Baby. Baby. We love you"). Doyle's simple rhymes are the perfect treat for young readers looking for a winsome read, while Gorton's multi-patterned, graphic illustrations with vivid colors are a zippy complement. A sparkling picture book sure to give young readers more than one gleeful grin.
Children's Literature
This happy family consists of twin girls and their parents. Raising twins is a different world for both parents and kids. There are twice as many toys and twice as many spills. Loving two babies is how it all begins. There are two bottles, two chairs and two bears. The twins go to the park to swing. They see the bunnies and ducks, two of each. There may be two babies, but only one mother's lap. Daddy has one book to read to two babies. The twins share one yellow duck in the bath and one lullaby. The twins then get into bed and go to sleep. This bedtime story with rhyming text is clever and well designed. An interesting illustration technique that includes some photographic elements is contrasted with a very simple silhouette style, alternating by page. These bright simple illustrations will attract the attention of even the youngest children, and please adult eyes as well. 2003, G P Putman's Sons, Ages 3 mo. to 3.
— Kristin Harris
School Library Journal
PreS-A superficial glimpse at a day in the life of two young siblings and their parents. The twins are introduced in the following manner: "One baby,/baby two./Baby. Baby./We love you!" Neither the text nor the artwork (except for a variation in clothing and hairstyle) creates any sense that these children are individuals. At times, the story seems disjointed. For example, after listing some of the children's possessions, the author describes how the twins play outdoors: "Two babies swinging. Up. Down. Up./Two brown bunnies. One white duck." Shown walking in front of the swings, these animals seem to appear out of the blue, without any visual or verbal explanation to clarify why they are there. Done in airbrushed acrylic paints, the illustrations are a bit flat. Collage elements, such as knitted textures and a paisley material, highlight the family's clothing and add a bit of interest. At times, a character or an object is shown in white silhouette, a choice that seems a bit stark in comparison to the warm colors used for the rest of the artwork. For a slightly older audience, Shelley Rotner and Sheila Kelly's About Twins (DK Ink, 1999) has an accessible text and irresistible photos to present a much more intriguing look at the family life of multiples.-Joy Fleishhacker, formerly at School Library Journal Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    My Babies Love It!

    It is my favorite book to read to my twins. Great for bedtime. It repeats words that babies and toddlers hear every day.
