Takes a look at the daily lives of young twins, both fraternal and identical, while explaining some of the special dynamics associated with being a twin.
"Ages 3^-8. Clear, colorful photographs of twins in action will draw children to this appealing photo-essay. Using just a few simple sentences per page, the text introduces subjects such as fraternal and identical twins, dressing alike and differently, siblings of twins, and sharing toys. In the last few pages, Scott's "Parents Note" explains that the book is intended not just for families with twins, but for all children. She discusses how to talk with young children about twinship and suggests ways to discuss the uniqueness of every child, including twins. With the increasing frequency of multiple births, many children know or see twins in their schools and communities, so this well-designed book is an excellent resource for parents and teachers to have on hand. --Carolyn Phelan"
