Dutch Twins - Lucy F. Next Chapter . The Day They Went Fishing. Their father was a gardener, and his beautiful rows of cabbages and beets and onions stretched in long lines across the level fields by the roadside. Grandfather lived in a large town, a little way beyond the farm where the Twins lived. He did not often have a holiday, because he carried milk to the doors of the people in the town, every morning early. Sometime I will tell you how he did it; but I must not tell you now, because if I do, I can't tell you about their going fishing.

5 year old twins, Kit and Kat, live in Holland. Their real name are Christopher and Katrina but Mother says they can't be called by these names until they are 4 1/2ft tall. Each of the six chapters is a stand alone story. The children go fishing with Grandpa and then they are given the privilege of going to market with their father. How do they get there? By boat on the canals. What can they buy with 2c?

IMPORTANT to bear in mind that this book was originally written many years ago. At one point Kat is told by her mother, "Girls shouldn't think much. It isn't good for them. Leave thinking to the men."

Kat's mother is already making linen for when Kat gets married! Learn some of the other customs like why there are so many windmills in Holland. Oh, the joys of Christmas and Saint Nicholas. Enjoy reading of the children's celebration with parents and grandparents along with a visit from St. Nick on Christmas evening.

Short, simple and definitely a little quaint, this book is an easy read. Great for children who are at the short chapter book level. There are NO illustrations in the Kindle version of this book. I was not required to write a review but chose to do so. Thanks, Liz

Nothing much happens in this chapter book about life in Holland. No kidnappings, murders, monsters, wizards, etc. Just stories about daily life in Holland for a pair of 5-year-olds. I had doubts, but I started reading it to my jaded, Plants & Zombies/Angry Birds-playing, 6-year-old Manhattanite son (changing the characters to be 6 years old). To my utter amazement, he started asking for "Kit and Kat" at bedtime and bath time. The plain, clear writing and the loveliness of the life rang a bell with him. The book is full of charming descriptions, sweet insights about kids and parents, little triumphs.

This is such a fun book! It is part of a series of "Twins" books that focus on different cultures. This Kindle version lacks the original illustrations, but the text is still fun to read. Beverly Cleary (beloved children's author) credits this book with being the first she ever read that she actually enjoyed when she was a child. I can see why. :-)

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.

I liked this book because of the things you can learn about Holland. It feels kind of made up because everything is basically always good. I think this book would be good for a 2nd or 3rd grader.

These are great books for children ( and adults) to get an understanding of a country and culture in an easy way. I recommend the whole series for all children.

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.
Wonderful memorabilia from my otherwise boring fourth grade class when I read the whole series in school. Evocative too at this juncture in a million different ways. Historically, it opened up a world that I couldn't have known about in my little Brooklyn enclave.
