We have one little paperback, "Twins Take a Bath" and my girls really enjoy that. I've been looking on Amazon for other twinny picture books and there are a few, but I wondered if anyone here has any recommendations.

Actually, what got me thinking about it was a post on GD that had a few picture books about sibling rivalry that a mama said her son found really helpful in relating to a new baby in the family. It got me wondering if there were anything like that related to twins.

Or maybe that's my next writing project?

It's not really a picture book but my two were able to sit through the chapters/short stories in Twice as Nice by Beverly Cleary from an early age. It's stories about Jimmy and Janet, when they are four. We also have, though it's not really twins, a story called My Sister and I. The sister is supposed to be older but the children (b/g) are *so* close in size, my two think they're twins.

Charlotte Voake, "Hello Twins" - Simon & Charlotte are twins who are completely opposite to one another (but like each other anyway).
Wendy Lewison, "Two is for Twins"

we have hello twins, too. it's cute. my best friend gave me, "my twin, my friend" when the girls were born. the pictures are cheesy, but it choked me up every time i read it when they were babies. it says, "mom and dad share our laughs and our fun. they've been blessed with two instead of one." it does mention god in one line, but it's not a religious book. the girls loved it so much the pages are torn and taped together in many places.

"Twinkle and Twinette" is an adorable picture book about two twins. Very cute rhymes and pictures. My favorite (and my girl's favorite line)...."Remember to treasure and thank all your stars, that you have a twin who loves who you are!"

 

 I bought mine on Amazon. https://www.createspace.com/4623997

 

 

Hope this helps!
