Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The fuzzy headed fraternal twins are ready to have a great day. The kids are the focus and are shown in strollers, riding the bus, enjoying the leaves falling from the trees and other features of a beautiful fall day. It is evident that they are city dwellers because we can see the city building outside the park. Dogs, frogs, and a turn on the swings are among the many pleasures that this duo enjoys. The simple text with its word repetition and simple sentences are evident in this Pre-level 1 book in the "Ready-to-Read" series. The simple watercolor illustrations are filled with charm, and little ones will have fun putting themselves in the same familiar situations. 2003, Aladdin/Simon and Schuster, Ages 3 to 5.
— Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-These beginning readers, which star a pair of unnamed siblings, are characterized by short rhyming sentences, a basic vocabulary, repetition, and appealing artwork. In the first title, the twins spend the day at a city park, enjoying the playground and exploring nature, while in the second, they pour, splash, and soap their way through a pleasant bath and end up dressed for bed. Weiss uses simple language to create stories that flow smoothly. The cartoon illustrations, done in watercolors with charcoal outlines and highlights, have a sense of energy and movement. The use of white space and a minimum of background scenery keep the focus on the characters and their actions and interactions. The children depicted in the pictures seem a bit younger than the ready-to-read crowd (in Park, they are shown being pushed in a stroller), which might put off some youngsters. Adequate purchases for collections in which very basic readers are in demand.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
