Today we were at the library. I’ve started watching for books about twins for our three-year-old son and our 14-month-old identical twin girls. I’ve only signed out a couple of books so far, but we’ll keep every time we go. Here’s what we’ve been reading:
This book is about boy/girl twins. It highlights how they are different from each other, but concludes that they like each other just the way they are. It is aimed at toddlers. The author of this book is a twin herself.
This book is also about boy/girl twins, and everything they do is “doubled.” It is also for toddlers. The author of this book has two children who are close in age.
I’ve been looking for some other books at Double Up Books, which specializes in books for and about multiples. The site has books organized by different combinations of multiples (BB, GG, BG) and by age. It also has a large selection of books about multiple pregnancy and parenting.
I’d love to find some books for our daughters that celebrate both the unique characteristics and the special bond that twins share. I’d also like some books that explore how a singleton feels about having twin siblings, and about how he is just as special as they are.
What are your multiples favourite books? Do you have any other suggestions of children’s books about multiples or about being a singleton in a family with multiples?
