PreS-Gr 1–A young boy and his fraternal twin, a giraffe, take readers through a day in their lives, depicting the high points and a few low ones. Being a twin is great for many reasons—always having a playmate, playing duets on piano, and having someone to talk to. Sometimes twins enjoy the same activities, but do them in different ways, like the way they build snowmen, dance, or enjoy a salad. Other times, twins disagree and argue, or even get into big fights. Those times are never fun, but the good thing is... twins never stay angry for long and they know that, in the end, they always have each other. Having a sibling comes with its share of pleasures and annoyances, and having a twin makes can make those experiences even more unique. The text is clear, brief, and concise, perfect for young listeners. The illustrations are happy, bright, and comical, perfectly mirroring the story line laid out in text.
VERDICT A fun and amusing picture book celebration of twinhood, great for one-on-one or small group sharing
