5.0 out of 5 stars Twice the Love July 16, 2007
By Cheryl
"Twice the Love" is compiled and edited by Susan M. Heim, a former senior editor for "Chicken Soup for the Soul." Similar to the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books, "Twice the Love" is composed entirely of short stories and poems written by parents or family members of twins, which are both entertaining and inspirational. Throughout the book, John M. Byrne colorfully illustrates the stories with cartoons.
As a parent of twins, I found myself nodding in agreement with the many challenges faced by parents of multiples. My favorite story was titled, "My Hands Are Full," which is an observation strangers love to make on a daily basis. I enjoyed the author's humorous review of all the statements you constantly hear as a parent of twins. My favorite poem was titled "The Math of Twins." Written in a rhyming manner, the author calculates all the numbers related to rearing twins.
"Twice the Love" is an entertaining and heart-warming book that any parent of multiples would enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars a delightful look at parenting twins June 7, 2007
Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for Reader Views (3/07)

"Twice the Love," completed and edited by Susan M. Heim, is filled with humorous and inspiring antecedents. Parents longing to share their special tales of living with multiples share their narratives with readers.
I laugh, cry, and have my heartstrings tugged each time I read the funny, poignant, joyful, sad and loving stories about each family s miracle multiples. Susan M. Heim, the mother of twins, selected a cross-section of stories sent to "Twins Magazine" over the years.
One mother shared her adventures in potty training her twin sons. She took the boys to the mall, where, of course, they had to go, now. The boys hadn't developed a sense of direction. The brown leather shoes of the woman in the next stall will never be the same. Charlene Henderson recalls people repeatedly saying to her, better you than me. As the mother of twin sons, I agree with her, better me than you! My hands are full holding my heart inside my chest because it swells with pride for these two small beings. In "How Lucky I," Katie Tatton shares "when we discovered we were having twins it was a miracle. Even if I never could have another baby, I would now have three children. I was ecstatic. I vowed I'd never forget how lucky I am to be the mother of twins."
"Twice the Love" is a delightful look at parenting twins. They are sometimes funny, always touching. This wonderful book brought back marvelous memories of raising my twin sons. The cover is a little busy, but the photograph is charming. The printing is rather small. Altogether this is a pleasant read that will bring smiles to the faces of many parents.

Book received free of charge.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Surprise of Great Writing April 17, 2007
What a surprise. I thought this book would be charming, but it exceeded expectations. It spans the human experience from the comedy expressed in "The Barbie Wars by Tom Reeves", to heart breaking triumph in "Coping with Chronic Illness," to the depth and introspection of Cheryl Oberbeck Burns' "Travelers in Space".

Some of the entries are a bit too cute, but all of it is relatable, and relevant. Not just twin parents, but all parents (and people) will find something here to make them chuckle, smile, and feel a bit more human.
