The terrible and terrific twos get their due in Growing Up Stories: Sweet Jasmine, Nice Jackson: What It's Like to Be 2 And to Be Twins! by Robie Harris, illus. by Michael Emberley, with a double entendre that covers both the age and the sibling duo. The twin stars chatter with each other, throw tantrums, hug, play and learn to use the toilet. Like other books in the series, the story runs alongside explanations of the characters' actions, targeted at older siblings. (Aug.) .
