Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-A bouncy text and appealing cartoon artwork provide a lighthearted glimpse at the busy lives of a brother-and-sister duo. The diaper-clad babes are introduced with gentle humor: "Double born./Twice the blessing./Double kids./Twice the messing." As buoyant as the staccato rhymes that describe them, the siblings are soon on the move, learning to walk and talk and encountering a range of experiences that will be familiar territory for most preschoolers. It's twice the fun, as they play with toys, enjoy time spent outdoors, eat a meal, and share a bath. At bedtime, after being tucked in by their smiling parents, the youngsters close their eyes, "Double tired/from all their play./Double dreams/for their next day." The colorful digital illustrations echo the breezy tone of the text. The layout is uncluttered and the action is set against clean pastel and white backgrounds. With orange hair, circle-shaped heads, and sketched-in features, the children resemble one another closely, but are also easily identifiable as individuals. An enjoyable romp.

From Booklist

PreS. A simple rhyme and lively, colorful, uncluttered illustrations make this picture book a joyful read-aloud for young children, twins or not. The boy-girl twins begin their journey as infants, but they progress through toddlerhood as the pages turn. The premise ("Double born. / Twice the blessing. / Double kids. / Twice the messing.") may be a little overdone, because, of course, twins don't do everything at the same time. But Courtin's big, active illustrations of the lovable kids busy together through the day will have young preschoolers pointing and joining in. Kathy Broderick

I have 14 month boy/girl twins and I love reading this book to them at night. When things are crazy, this book gives me a positive and uplifting look on their lives. Highly recommend it to anyone with twins.

Margaret O'Hair's Twin to Twin is simply charming and charmingly simple. Make no mistake, to chronicle a baby (in this case two babies) growing years with such few words and convey so much takes an enormous amount of skill on the part of a writer and O'Hair shines in this department. Her style of juxtaposing nouns and verbs to create an active image in a soothing, almost lyrical way seduces and lulls the reader. Illustrator Thierry Courtin accompanies perfectly by enhancing the text's tone with unassuming, comfortable images. How great to have a book that protrays twins in such a wonderfully delightful way! However, a word of warning: if you have twins, it's best to buy two copies, one for each child, for this is one book they will NOT want to share. And I should know. I am a twin.

This is a wonderful twin story with a sweet rhyme and great illustrations. It is the perfect addition for the twins in your life. I gave it to a three-year-old with newborn twin siblings, and he just can't get enough of it. I recommend it highly.

This is a delightful book. It gives us a humorous peek into what parents of twins are up against. Even early readers will enjoy its short and sweet verse: "Double shirts. Double jeans. Belly buttons in between." And the illustrations are heart-warming! TWIN TO TWIN is a book that I'll keep on my "Special" shelf to read again and again. I'm looking forward to more children's books from the talented Margaret O'Hair.

I intended to buy this book for a friend expecting twins, but had to get one for myself. The charming illustrations in baby hues grabbed me first. I couldn't stop turning the pages with right-on rhyme that made this mom chuckle. Parents of any little ones will want this by their bedside for nightly storytime. I'm also going to use it in my 1st grade class because I believe in the power of language. This new author not only has a "niche" book for families with twins, but a book all children will want to hear again and again (and will be soon chiming in with the rhymes).
