Yum! A Tale Of Two Cookies


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?

Young Reader (3):
This was an instant hit when our child was two. Fast forward 2 years and our child still periodically pulls this from the shelf and asks us to read it. She loves the antics of the twins This One and That One.

Parent Perspective:
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 quiet moments away from the kids.

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