Item description for The Dutch Twins by Fitch Perkins Lucy...
The children of the 21st century will find these once out-of-print tales entertaining yet educational. Kit and Kat are two little Dutch Twins who are really named Christopher and Katrina, however their mother says: "They cannot be called Christopher and Katrina until they are four and a half feet high." Now it takes a long time to grow four and a half feet of Boy and Girl. You know, chickens and puppies and colts and kittens always grow up much faster than twins. Kit and Kat ate a great many breakfasts and dinners and suppers, and played a great many plays, and had a great many happy days while they were growing up to their names. I will tell you about some of them... Perkins' cultural geography content is educationally delightful. Hand a child any one of Perkins' "Twins" books and you are not only giving that child "fun" you are also giving them learning thereby cultivating knowledge. Paperback: 134 pages.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Dutch Twins?
Indypublish.com edition is a flimsy computer printout May 14, 2005
The name of the publisher should have clued me in to the fact that this edition is only an imitation of a real children's book. Perkins' original book was charmingly illustrated; this has no illustrations at all. This is disorienting as well as disappointing, since even the first line of the text refers to an illustration. The lack of illustrations greatly reduces its appeal to younger children. The edition is flimsily bound, and closely resembles a manual that might come with your new Kenmore washer.

I have memories attatched to this book. My grandmother read this to me as a little girl, and to this day I enjoy reading the simplicity, the absolute ease of the style. I take this book now and read to my grandmother because she has alziemers. If I didn't have those memories I admit I might not feel so special about it, but those are the memories I never want to forget.
