This is a lovely book, which focuses on family togetherness. The illustrations are beautiful. It would make a nice gift for twins.
THIS ONE AND THAT ONE SMELL COOKIES BAKING!!!
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 17 years ago
Actress Jane Seymour and her husband, Actor James Keach, are among the latest celebrities to jump on the children's book bandwagon and are doing so very successfully. They've created a wonderful series of books in which their family of cats stand-in for their own family, allowing them to share their own experiences as parents and at the same time delighting children with the tales of their twin kittens, "This One and That One." In "Yum", the twin kittens smell cookies baking as it's time for them to go off to bed. They want cookies but Lady Jane cat explains that the cookies are for dad to take when he goes fishing. Off to bed go the kids as mom packs the cookies in a picnic basket. But the kids cannot get the vision and smell of those cookies out of their heads. They sneak downstairs and crawl right into the basket and then mom carries it out to dad who is fishing by the shore. Well, the kittens did a number on those cookies but each saved a big cookie for dad as the book closes with the family dancing on the beach. As with their other books, "Yum" is very anecdotal in its story relating the very simple stories that all parents experience with their kids. As our own kids can sometimes be, This One and That One can sometimes be a bit of a nuisance, but they're always adorable and filled with love. The book is complemented with the excellent illustrations of Geoffrey Planer who helps bring it all to life.

I bought this book when my oldest's second Christmas(he's now seven.) It has since been read over a 1000 times!!! My children love the entire series about This One & That One so much that they've taken to calling a family friend "Big Jim." I highly recommend all the books in this series.
A great story to add to our family's collection!

My two boys giggled the whole time I was reading this to them. I referred to each of them as This One and That One, which they thought was very funny. A story about cookies, of course, can get any child's attention any time especially at our house. I enjoyed it because I appreciate a story about a family who shares in a lot of fun, laughter and love. A family that doesn't take life too seriously and can see the humor in things. The fact that it's about a family of cats really appealed to my children. A fun read that will be a part of our bedtime routine often.
