Have you read Even Steven and Odd Todd by Kathryn Cristaldi? It's a Scholastic Hello Reader Math book, and we picked it up for 5 cents in a church book sale. This title is awesome and hilarious and so reminds us of our Buby and Bleu. Buby is Steven all the way. Perfectionist. Socks pulled up to his knees. Shirt buttoned up to his neck. Jacket and tie.
In the book Steven walks his sweet little neighborhood and goes from bakery to library to post office. He likes pancakes and clean dishes. He gardens and blows smoke out of his ears when people ruin his hard work. He puts onions and olives on pizza. He is neat and particular and competitive and likes to do things in even numbers. Buby equals Steven.
