Product Overview: Emily and Alex are twins. They have the same birthday. They have the same last name. But they can be as different as night and day.
Meet Emily and Alex, fraternal twins who love being different. Emily is clean, Alex is dirty; Emily likes dots, Alex likes stripes; Emily is noisy, Alex is quiet. Acclaimed artist Barroux makes his Blue Apple Books debut with two charming and witty books of opposites, featuring a pair of lovable twins who are double the trouble and double the fun.
Barroux studied photography, art, sculpture, and architecture in France at the famous École Estienne and École Boule. He went on to work as an art director in Paris and Montreal. While in Canada, Barroux began illustrating by creating linocut images, and he is now well known for his children’s book illustrations… From Blue Apple Books.
MommyREVIEW: This book immediately caught our eyes because of the adorable art work. It was short and engaging when we read the book to our toddlers and just the right length for before nap or a quick story time. This book will help your little ones learn opposites and understand the words through the colorful artwork that expresses the fun actions of Emily & Alex (we love how silly and mischief you can tell they are even with this short book their personalities shine through). The book is easy enough for toddlers and kindergartners to read on their own once they start reading, too.
MommyReview’s Recommendation: Great book for the bookshelf (and a cute baby shower or baby’s 1st birthday gift). Also makes cute art to be displayed on a shelf as well
Overall Rating: 5
Where to Buy: Chronicle Books and other booksellers
