I know first hand how ‘alike and different’ twins can be, whether they look alike or not! Keep reading to see what I thought of Twin Tales.
Disclosure: I received this book to review through iRead Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
Imagine having someone that is just like you in the world. Or what if there were not just like you, but everyone thought they were? Twin sisters Alexia and Denise might look alike on the outside, but they are very different on the inside. Join the sisters as they reveal what makes them unique. An enduring story of siblings who share a strong bond that parents will appreciate, and children will love.
Having younger sisters who are twins (but do not look alike) and hubby’s family having cousins that are twins (and do look alike), I was excited to read Twin Tales.
I know first hand how different twins can be even when they look alike or dress alike.
Unlike Alexia and Denise, my little sisters do not look alike, but my mom did dress them alike often. They are definitely two very different people even though they are twins. One is more quiet and reserved, while the other is outgoing. One is pale skinned while her twin is very tan all the time. We say one takes after our mom’s side of the family, while the other takes after her dad’s side of the family.
My “cousin in-laws” looked very much alike when they were younger and still as adults, look alike. If they are together, I can tell them apart, but when they are separate, I still struggle. Yet, they are both different in their own ways. One is more ‘corporate’ and ‘professional’ in my opinion, while the other tends to be more ‘rugged’ and ‘outdoorsy’. Yet, they were born in the same year, on the same date.
I love that Alexia and Denise were able to share how they are alike in ways other than looking alike, but also sharing how they are different! There may be a lot of similarities, but it’s important for people to remember that twins are individual people too and not everything about them in alike!
I will definitely be sharing this book with my 8 year old! The story is cute and the illustrations are adorable!
