Format: Paperback
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.

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
Written in English, French, and Spanish

Format: Paperback
This book is about two sister's who do everything together. They play dolls together. They play with their big fluffy dog, Bernard. They play in the park and do many other things together, having adventures every day of their lives. They are twin sister's who are thankful to have each other to play with and be around. My Sister Is My Best Friend is a 16 page trilingual picture book for children between the ages of 3-7 years of age. Children will be able to read the story in English, Spanish and French.

This story brings the true meaning of friendship to light. We may have best friends in the world, but no bond is better then the one we have with our siblings. It is those friendships that truly do last forever, because there really is no one who knows us better. Children will relish in the bond the sister's have and will have a nice warm feeling brewing inside them as the girls go about their day in each other's company, as well as in their mothers.

The illustrations are charming and heart warming as the illustrator, Clara Smith, creates these sister's so realistically to the reader. The twins wearing matching outfits, along with similar hair styles, reminds this reviewer of when I was a child with my sister and we looked liked twins constantly. The soft warm colors are soothing and colorful, bring an uplifting warmth that matches the story perfectly. A delightful story for all.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
My Sister is My Best Friend, a picture book by Nicole Weaver and illustrated by Clara Batton Smith, was a surprising treat. What surprised me was that it is written in trilingual form. Yes, each page of the story has three versions, written in English, Spanish, and French. If you and your child are bi-lingual, you'll have fun reading this book and figuring out what the words in the third language mean. My daughter read it to me in English and Spanish, and then I read it to her in French.

The story itself is very sweet. It celebrates the delight these girls have in growing up with a twin sister who is clearly a best friend and fun playmate. The girls laugh, play, pretend, romp, help their mother, and enjoy outings together. It is sisterhood served up in a double helping.

The illustrations add to the fun of the story. In each panel you see the two sisters happily playing together and having a great time. But it's not all about play. They also help their mother, as they care for each other, and even play with their big fluffy dog. Their delight and enjoyment of each other is clearly evident.

This is one book that you have to read at least three times to fully appreciate -- in English, Spanish, and French.
