Book Review: Twin to Twin
It's twin picture book time again! In a previous post about another twin book, I mentioned that I'm always on the lookout for some books about twins. Today's review is Twin to Twin, written by Margaret O'Hair and illustrated by Thierry Courtin, and published by Simon & Schuster.
The picture book is about boy/girl twins, which is always a favorite of mine since my twins are boy/girl. This book definitely celebrates the "double nature" of twins in house, both good and bad. Twins means twice the dirty diapers and toys and mess and work, but also twice the love and blessings.
The illustrations are very sweet, and the text is written in a very sing-songy, rhyming way, which is great to read aloud as a bedtime story. It's simple enough for a sibling to read to her brother-and-sister, something Big Girl likes to do, as well as short enough to put on a pile of bedtime stories.
I definitely recommend this as a baby shower gift, new baby gift, or even a "1st Birthday" gift to a set of twins!
