Children love to hear the stories about what they were like and all the wonderful, amazing, interesting, and funny things they did when they were 2-year-olds. They have endless questions about the year they were 2. Why do 2-year-olds say "NO!" a lot? Why do they love to talk to babies? Why do they have tantrums?Why do 2-year-olds say, "When Mommy comed home?" instead of "When's Mommy coming home?" Why do 2-year-olds feel so proud when they can finally use a potty?Do they know that sharing a toy is a nice thing to do?Can they brush their teeth by themselves? The award-winning team who created Hello Benny! What It's Like To Be A Baby and Go! Go! Maria! What It's Like To Be 1 have created a third picture book for their stellar series, Growing Up Stories -- books that tell enchanting stories and present fascinating facts about the first five years of life. Sweet Jasmine, Nice Jackson tells the story of 2-year-old twins and celebrates their third year of life -- Jackson putting boots on the wrong feet, Jasmine having a tantrum at the shoe store, Jackson sticking a flower in his potty, Jasmine putting marshmallows in Jackson's hair, Jackson pretending to shave, and Jasmine calling a friend "Stupid!" Sweet Jasmine, Nice Jackson tells the remarkable story of how 2-year-olds "grow up."Combining a beautifully told story with a myriad of fascinating facts about 2-year-olds -- and about twins -- Harris and Emberley have created another timeless book for children to enjoy and for families to share together.Two-year-old twins -- just like other two-year-olds -- are terrific! They love to talk, laugh, and play with a friend. They love to say "NO!" a lot too. They are always trying to find out all they can about almost everything. That's why they love to ask so many questions. And that's why they love to look at books, squish grapes, stomp through puddles, dig in the mud, pour water, scribble with crayons, and climb anything they can.
