Review of the book The Dutch Twins by Lucy Fitch Perkins
Sweet stories of ordinary events in the lives of Kit and Kat, Dutch twins, written in 1911.
Kit and Kat are twins. They live in Holland with their mother and father. Kit and Kat are not their real names; their real names are Katrina and Christopher, but they will not be called Katrina and Christopher until they are four and a half feet tall and that will be a long time from now.
So goes this little collection of stories about the two little Dutch twins. They go fishing with their father on the dyke and drive a tiny milk cart with their grandfather and sell cabbages with their father and help their mother clean their house and wait for Saint Nicholas to come to their house and bring candies and cakes. Simple little stories, filled with little details about windmills and dykes and wooden shoes and Dutch church. Such lovely little stories that I read all 191 pages at one sitting.
Because the stories are so old, they are available online for free. A little research about author Lucy Fitch Perkins reveals that she wrote a whole series of twin books, including Mexican Twins, French Twins, and even Eskimo Twins.
Good thing: I smiled a lot while I read about Kit and Kat's 'adventures' - learning to ice skate, helping their father take produce to market, and going fishing with their grandfather.
This is an interesting book for younger readers, telling of the life of children in Holland. Should be required for 3rd to 4th grade readers. I liked the suggestions for teachers at the end.
