Twins in Children’s Books

October 17th, 2013 by melissa g

I just read The Two and Only Kelly Twins by Johanna Hurwitz, and it got me thinking that we really need a list of books that feature twins. So many of us have twins in our lives – my twin nieces just turned 3! And, if you don’t have twins in your own house, you’re fascinated by those who do. How do they do it?

It isn’t just adults who are interested in twins either. Most kids are too! I mean, who wouldn’t want a playmate who was exactly their age and always available for fun and games. Of course, they don’t always consider the fighting over toys, their parents’ attention, and Halloween candy! That’s what I really like about The Two and Only Kelly Twins. It offers some insight into the ups and downs of being a twin. Here are some others you might want to try, including Ling & Ting and The Templeton Twins which have both been featured on Sweet on Books:
