Joined at Birth: The Lives of Conjoined Twins

by Elaine Landau

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6In both titles, Landau presents the material in a straightforward manner along with medical explanations and terminology. Chapters provide historical and modern examples of conjoined twins (Joined at Birth) and dwarfism (Short Stature); medical causes and treatments of the conditions; and questions, concerns, and challenges faced by young people and adults living with these differences. Special terms are printed in bold type and most are explained within the text. While the books focus on the differences, Landau adeptly describes how these individuals are like everyone else. Excellent-quality, full-color and black-and-white photographs appear throughout. Fine additions to help children build understanding and acceptance of others.Janice C.
