I can’t believe I’m three years into twin parenting and just know sharing these books about twins and twin parenting. To say my plate has been full is an understatement. I’m pretty sure I’ve read more parenting books and articles about twins than I did with either of my singletons. Fear, unknown, curiosity, and defeat all had (and still have) me reaching for books about twins and twin parenting. I’ve tried not to over knowledge my brain, but I wanted to know what to expect when expecting twins and even how to handle things like potty training twins and separating twins for preschool.

Books About Twins for Siblings
My oldest two kids were SO excited when they found out I was having twins. Two babies are so awesome they kept saying. It took my 14-year-old roughly a year to declare she was never having children and my 9-year-old son doesn’t always love them for coming in his room. If you want to help your children understand twins, here are some books about twins for siblings that may help.
Books for Twins About Twins
Twins may not realize they are twins until you tell them, especially when they are young. At three I don’t think my twins realize they are twins. They know that “she is my Charlie” and “he is my Oliver” and that the other one is always there and when they aren’t we must find out where they are at once. When you break the news to your twins that they are twins, these books for twins about twins may help them learn a little bit more about twins.
