TWO IS FOR TWINS by Wendy Cheyette Lewison

TWO IS FOR TWINS

Age Range: 2 - 5

KIRKUS REVIEW

“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)
