Editorial Reviews

Sesame Street Parents
Luscious full-color photographs of more than 30 pairs of young kids show what it's like to be a twin...the fun and the bother, the company and the crowding. Real quotes from youngsters are sprinkled throughout the pages to match the real-life pictures. There is also an introductory note to parents that stresses the challenge of helping each child develop a sense of being special in his or how own right.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Packed with full-color photos of smiling siblings, this book provides a look at what it's like to be a twin. Using simple language, the authors stress the close relationship that develops between identical and fraternal twins while pointing out that they are also individuals. Quotes taken from interviews with children (e.g., "My twin always understands me" or "Other people might be lonely. We hardly ever are") are interspersed throughout, adding a personal touch to the text. The book has a crisp, open layout: full-page photos alternate with smaller portraits set against pastel backgrounds. Featuring many different youngsters of a variety of ages, the pictures show twins sharing hugs, wrestling for toys, and posing together proudly. Similar in content and tone to Elaine Scott's Twins! (Atheneum, 1998), this appealing photo-essay is a good discussion starter for families of twins and a fine introduction for children curious about them.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
Childrens Book Watch
There are plenty of books about twins for adult readers; this appeals to young picturebook readers with a photo-filled account of twins and their differences and similarities. This much-needed book is a 'must' for any collection seeking family-oriented books: it helps siblings understand the different possibilities and personalities of twins.
