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.
The Twins could hardly eat any breakfast, they were in such a hurry to go. As soon as they had taken the last spoonful, and Grandfather Winkle had finished his coffee, they ran out into the place where the dogs were kept, to help Grandfather harness them.
