Now in board book, a loving ode to twindom, in all its ups and downs

Hand in hand, side by side, a twin is your friend.
Every step of the way, from beginning to end.
Having a twin can be great! With a twin, you have a lifelong bond, a partner in crime, and a food-I-don’t-want-to-eat eater. But with a twin, you also have to share, and take turns, and compare.
It’s not always easy, but for better or worse, a twin is a friend who will always be by your side. With a small trim and expressive illustrations, this charming board book is the perfect gift for the expectant parent or twin in your life.
