Poco and Moco are twin lambs. They look almost exactly alike, and they get along so well that they spend every minute of their day together. But they’re also different in a lot of ways. For one thing, Poco is a boy and Moco is a girl. Poco likes breads and rolls, but Moco likes cakes and pastries. They both like donuts, so if they only have one, they split it in half. Poco likes to play hide-and-seek, Moco loves to climb trees. And when they join forces they can do things neither of them could ever do alone.
The use of fold-outs, cut-outs, and other special features add an extra element of fun as readers get to know the twins and explore differences and similarities.

We received this book to give an honest review.

I am sad to give this book a 2 because it seems to have great potential. We are introduced to Poco and Moco not only are they twins they are best friends. Yet we can tell they are very different than one another. The illustrations are wonderful done within the story. A and I agreed that it is a good idea to share something that you both have like Moco and Poco share their doughnut. 
Now the reason you may ask is why would you give this book a two star review if you seemed to like it. Well first of all there is a illustration within the book that shows Poco standing up to go to the bathroom and Moco sitting down. Now I understand there may be nothing wrong with this but when I am reading to my little girl who is 5 I really don't want to have to explain at least not at this moment why boys pee standing up and girls sit down. I think that there is another illustration they could have used. 
Second half of the words were split into three different page along with the pictures. Really hard to read a story when the formatting is not really good.
