Peas in a Pod
Pippa, Pia, Poppy, Polly, and Peg were born together and they all looked the same to one another. At first they did everything the same, crying, eating, sleeping, going potty, sitting. Until one day everything changed. They started being different and one was overtaking the other. It was a big mess until mom and dad decided that everything was to become the same again. So they would play the same, take a bath together, swim together. But they did not like the same, because they liked different things. One liked playing ball, one liked painting nails, one would dance, one would be interested in dressing, the other one in fixing hair. So they decided to get different. At first they changed they way their hair looked. Then their clothes. Then their shoes and the accessories. One would wear a hat, one would wear piggy tails, one a crown, one sunglasses, one a bow. They took on different hobbies as well: guitar, knitting, jumping rope, skating, painting, gymnastics, climbing, reading…. And they had different attitudes and dreams for their future work. So they were never the same again, unless they were sleeping. This book was cute, I liked looking at the girly pictures, with their different hobbies and activities. It gave me so many ideas for my dress up games.
