YUM! A TALE OF TWO COOKIES

Author: Jane Seymour and James Keach

Illustrator: Geoffrey Planer

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Angel Gate,

Material: hard cover

Summary: This One and That One, the youngest kittens, are tired of hearing "no." They want to eat some of Mom's freshly baked cookies. Not before bed. And they want to go fishing with Dad. Not tonight. Instead, they get to go to bed while everyone else gets to play. That doesn't seem fair, does it? This picture book offers a humorous look at family life.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, family reading, playtime reading, read aloud book, learning to read

Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 6; read yourself: 5 to 9

Interest Level: 2 to 8

Age of Child: Started reading with 3-year-old child. Still reading at 7 years old.

Young Reader Reaction: This was an instant hit. Even after 2 years, our child will periodically pull this from the shelf and ask us to read it. S/He loves the antics of the twins This One and That One.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is one of those stories where you can wear both pairs of paws. You'll remember what it was like when you wanted to do what the adults did, and you can also be the parent who still wishes for those stolen romantic moments.

Pros: The book makes it easy to see humor in everyday life. The story moves quickly and the illustrations are wonderful. It's a great book for twins!

Cons: Absolutely none.

Borrow or Buy: Buy! Everyone in the family can enjoy this book. If you have twins, this is a must-have, as there are few books out there with this much appeal.
