These realistic predicaments with warm resolutions will fare well
with the chapter-book set. Singletons' interest in twins will be
piqued while multiples will find much to relate to.
Accessible text and frequent illustrations (artwork not seen)
make this a friendly pick for young readers tackling their first
chapter books. Themes of identity and self-discovery join amiable
characters reminiscent of Clementine, Ivy, and Bean, making this a
solid addition to early chapter-book collections.
This gentle twin story explores big questions about identity in
an approachable way for budding chapter book readers.
