A great read-aloud! Jul 30, 2001
My children loved reading this story about twin 4-year olds over and over again. Beverly Cleary is always great and the illustrations are cute.
New Boots Jul 9, 2000
Brief Synopsis: Jimmy and Janet are anxious to grow up. They tell their mother that they think that their feet are growing, so she takes them for new shoes. At the shoe store, Mr. Markle says that they haven't outgrown their shoes. This makes Mr. Markle very sad, because he's afraid that he won't be able to sell Jimmy and Janet's mother any shoes for the children. He ends up talking her into buying boots to go over their old shoes. They get bright red boots that will stretch. These boots are just right for their growing feet.
Note to Teachers: This book would be good to read when studying a unit that involves measuring growth in inches or pounds. It is also good to read when talking about going shopping. The book contains beautiful pictures. Grades K-3 would enjoy this book by Beverly Cleary.
