A sister complains about the way everyone confuses her twin brothers

From Publishers Weekly:

From the moment twins Jack and Jake are born, their older sister can tell them apart, but no one else can. "They said, 'Jack is hungry,' when it's Jake who cried./They said, 'Jake is wet,' but it's Jack they dried." When Jack and Jake go off to school, their classmates mix them up too: "Jack tried and Jake tried to make them aware./Jake gave himself freckles. Jack parted his hair." Finally, the sister gets fed up and teaches everyone how to tell them apart: "Jack does things and says things that only Jack could./Jake finds things and likes thing that only Jake would." A careful reader, the second time through, will be able to pick out the subtle differences that distinguish the two. With Aliki's cheerful watercolor and black ink illustrations, this is a good book for twins, and a clever puzzle for readers who wonder if people can be alike in every way.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1 Finding the clues telling identical twins apart is always fun for all ages and especially in Aliki's full-color, lap-sized book. Is it the opposite direction of their cowlicks? Their handedness? Their choice of activities? Their approach to clothes? The book is made to induce instant, amiable quarrels over the mass of visual evidence provided on how to tell Jack from Jake. This should make an excellent choice for small-group page-by-page participation, since the mystery of which stocky, small brunet is Jake and which is Jack goes from their cradle days through their first summer vacation from school. A good lead-in for reading specialists trying to induce attention to the even smaller details necessary to the recognition of the printed letter. Lillian N. Gerhardt, "School Library Journal"
