"My son was enchanted by 'Two by Two'. He studied each page very carefully and internalized each lesson. It has become a story time favorite." - Becky G.

Two by Two and How they Grew by Jacqueline McNeil

Two by Two and How they Grew by Jacqueline McNeil is a collection of six rhymed narratives, suitable for children of second or third grade. In each story, a different set of children with opposite personalities take center stage and become involved in a universal classroom conflict which they eventually resolve, with minimal help from the teacher, who is always present, but usually in the background. In this way, the natural wisdom of each child emerges and resolves the particular dilemma in a refreshing, satisfying manner.

A FUN experience, yet if parents or teachers wish to engage their children in dialogue about one or all of the stories, the basic values inherent in each narrative provide that opportunity.
