The illustrations add to the fun of the story.
Penelope Anne Cole
An added bonus is that the book is written in three languages--English, Spanish and French--a great resource for students studying languages.
Janet Halfmann
It is a great way to introduce children to other languages and other cultures.

My Sister is my Best Friend - a trilingual story written primarily in English, with secondary and tertiary texts in French and Spanish, is a terrific book which provides a fun way to introduce kids to foreign language.

Twin sisters who are also each others' best friends enjoy playing, pretending make-believe, exploring . . . and more; all in the comfort of the loving relationship they share with one another.

Author, Nicole Weaver, who teaches French and Spanish in high school, has written a book that is as much a joy to read as it is educational in its content. Colorful illustrations are a great addition to this charming book.

Another wonderful creation with text by Nicole Weaver accompanied by fantastic illustrations by Clara Batton Smith. The tale of twin girls who are also best friends is not only a delight to read out loud and a colorful feast for the eyes, but it is also accompanied by text in French and Spanish, languages we try to practice at home. A great gift for the child in your life - from the age of two when they can listen to this story being read to them, up to the age of six or seven when they can read on their own and practice new languages. Brilliant concept, very well executed. As the mother of three young boys I prefer the 'boy version' titled 'My Brother is my Best Friend' but if you have a little girl you'd like to make happy, go for this book. You won't regret it.

Firstly, I am in love with the title. A celebration of family and bonding that shines in the wonderful sentences conjured by author, Nicole Weaver. Matching her charming phrasing, which itself is adeptly crafted is the bright and brilliant art of Clara Batton Smith. And to top it off, each English sentence is mirrored in French and Spanish so you can not only enjoy the love of true family values, you can learn something new along the way. Such a creative book deserves attention! Bravo.

I love children's literature it was my favorite part of being a classroom teacher and I love reading to my girls. I have been so blessed with the opportunity to review some great children's books.

The latest book I have reviewed is called My Sister Is My Best Friend by Nicole Weaver. It is an adorable story about twin girls that do everything together. They play dolls, go to the park, play make believe, eat ice cream and so much more. Not only is the story cute and relatable to my girls but the pictures are fun and entertaining. I love seeing the twins in their matching outfits as they spend time and enjoy each others company.

The best part of this story is that it is a trilingual story. It is written in English, French, and Spanish. The author believes that children should be exposed to a foreign language at an early age. All children can master it if given the opportunity or the exposure. Nicole has researched and written many articles about exposing children to a variety of different languages.

Did I say that trilingual was the best part? No, this is the best part of the book She gives a portion of her proceeds to an organization called Mercy and Sharing. I love making purchases that I know are giving back to a good cause.

I call this book the trifecta story because there are so many advantages to purchasing and sharing this story.
An adorable bond between sisters

This is an adorable little story of twin girls who find joy in each other's company. They have everything in common, and delight in the riches of every day joys. They share their toys, Spend their time in make believe fun; that is, when they are not rolling on the ground with big fluffy Bernard.

Trips to the park and butterflies inspire them to pretend to fly. Pretending is great fun for the sisters, as is helping Mother with the gardening. On special days Mother takes the two of them on a fun trip in a most unusual bus. They enjoy treats, and the attention they receive from others.

My Sister is My Best Friend; written by Nicole Weaver, and illustrated by Clara Batton Smith is written in three languages, English, Spanish, and French.

The illustrations of this book are vivid in color, cute and engaging, and in my opinion will clench the attention of little girls who will be amused by all of the events these happy little twins experience throughout the book.

This would be a great book for five or six year olds to read along with a parent. The brilliant art work will also attract children of younger ages.

We have all heard of the special bond that twins have. At times no words need to be spoken, they already know what the other is thinking. My Sister is My Best Friend is a story about the unique and very close friendship that exists between twin sisters. The sisters celebrate their friendship and closeness by doing just about everything together.

People from all cultures can relate to this heart warming story with the text written in English/Spanish/French on each page. Suggested age range for readers 2-8 years old. Already receiving great reviews, this would make a wonderful gift
