Twins: A Picture Book By Mike Ciccotello


Back of Book:
Being a twin is great! Sometimes our friends can’t tell us apart.
A boy and his twin do everything together―leapfrog and piggyback rides, dancing and disagreeing, and everything in between! Their relationship has its ups and downs, but in the end, it’s great knowing there’s someone in their world who is just like them. This charming picture book is a sweet and silly celebration of twinhood―whether you look-alike or not!
My Review:
I received a copy of this picture book from Farrar, Straus, and Giroux in exchange for an honest review.
As a teacher, I have taught several sets of twins. They always have there own individual personalities, but the ties that bind them are strong.
This adorable story by Mike Ciccontello focuses on all the things that make twins special. The text gives several examples of all the ways that twins are similar as well as how they are different.  Mike also stresses the point that even though twins might not always get along, they will always love one another.  Mike was inspired to write this story for his twin boys. The story allows children who do not have a twin see what it is like.  The illustrations are bright and detailed they draw readers into the story.  This is a terrific story to share with twins of all ages. It is also a great read-aloud if you have twins in your classroom.
