Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
What comes in twos—plenty of things—two hands, two feet, two wings on a bird, and, of course, a pair of twins. As this book notes, twins are very close because they have each other to play with and depend on for support. What could be better? Sometimes twins dress alike and do things together, other times they like to show their independence. With the number of multiple births on the rise, it is not unusual to have more than one set of twins in a school or even in a class. The delight that this pair share between themselves and those around them culminates in a birthday party when the twos become three, but readers know that these twins will always be a team of two. The original picture book is now available as a board with no loss of its charm. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-In bouncy rhyme, Lewison highlights things that come in pairs-a bird's wings, bicycle wheels, and a smiling child's hands, ears, feet, and, finally, sibling: "And twins, as you can plainly see,/are just as two as two can be." Aspects of this special relationship are briefly mentioned as the youngsters appear in matching clothes, pursue individual interests at school, play together, and end up in bed with chicken pox. While there is nothing new here and some of the phrases border on the banal ("Twins are two-er than anyone./Two times the hugs, two times the fun"), the rhythmic text reads aloud smoothly. Saturated with deep hues and painted with a whimsical touch, the artwork carries the story along as two curly haired cuties interact with one another and pursue typical toddler activities. With their round heads, pinpoint eyes, and expressive mouths, the characters are appealing, and the nonstop motion and humorous details in the illustrations maintain interest. One exuberant spread shows the tykes zooming down a slide, their faces glowing with excitement and their arms raised high, while a sneaker flies off a foot and into the pale blue sky. Consider this frothy offering for deeper collections or where tales about twins are perennially popular.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
"Twins are two-er than anyone." What better subject for a concept book on two than twins. Lewison's simple rhymes begin with the twos around us: "Two eyes look up. Two eyes look down. / Two ears can hear a jingly sound." They progress to describing the relationship of identical twin boy toddlers at home and preschool: "Sometimes they wear matching clothes. / Then they're two from nose to toes." Doubling the fun culminates at the twins' third birthday party. Although some rhymes are forced, this is a worthy selection for young readers, given the paucity of books about twins and children's keen interest in the subject. What will delight preschoolers the most are Nakata's colorful, spirited watercolors of children at play. Each illustration sports a plethora of pairs (snails, swings, braids, etc.) to discover and to help master the number two. (Picture book. 2-5)
