This is the story of two little Belgian refugees and is based upon the actual experience of two Belgian children. Lucy Fitch Perkins' Belgian Twins is set in a "sad hour of the world's history". Her focus in this book was on the people "who, throughout the struggle, have gone about their daily tasks with unfailing courage and cheerfulness, and by so doing have helped to carry the burdens of the world, and to sustain other hearts as heavy as their own." The children of the 21st century will find these tales entertaining yet educational. Perkins' 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: 124 pages.
