I’m Having Twins is based upon the real-life experiences of a little girl named Paris living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Written by 9 year old author, Paris Morris, it comes in paperback and serves as a wonderful way to introduce older siblings to new baby twins!
I’m Having Twins is an inspirational children’s book about a 3-year-old girl named Paris who comes to terms with her parents adding twin siblings to their family mix. The story begins as Paris learns that she will soon have twin siblings and ends as the family leaves for the hospital to have “her twins”. The book takes Paris through the trials and tribulations of a twin pregnancy from the big sister’s perspective and shows her how they are really hers, too, easing her transition to Big Sisterhood.
Let’s have a look at what our reviewers had to say:
Pookie and The Boys – The illustrations are full page color which makes it nice to study the page while you are reading to see the details. It isn’t too elaborate so it does keep your attention without being long and drawn out. I would recommend it to chidren who are at least 7 or older, younger children would like the pictures only.
Maria’s Space – The book is really cute. They are written by a 9 year old girl named Paris. The photos are adorable, colorful and full of detail. I love the idea behind the story from the prospective of a child who has been the center of her parents universe. What a great book idea for children no matter what age about to welcome siblings, especially twins.
Blogmania – The book is light, humorous and simple so young children can relate to and understand the story line. Paris accurately captured the psychological roller coaster that small children experience when their immediate family structure will soon drastically change.
Cheeks to Cheeks – My daughter absolutely loves this book because she could relate to all the events that are mentioned in the book. She would glee in delight about the Fourth of July Fireworks and Halloween Trick-or-Treating. A whole lot of it has to do with her experiences in these events and being in San Francisco Bay Area helps a bit. We share the same hood as Paris Morris–we also live near San Francisco, California.
Mommy Brain Reports – I’d definitely recommend this book to any parent for their children who are expecting more than one special blessing in their family! I think seeing another child around their age going through the same thoughts and feelings would help put their minds at ease a little more before their twins arrive.
Connie’s Views – The questions Paris asks, the wonderment she experiences and her way of describing them makes this book just adorable. The illustrations are colorful and kid-friendly.
Just A Mom’s Take On Things – I’m Having Twins is a cute, engaging story that kids can relate to – especially if they are about to become a big sister (or brother) themselves. And unlike a lot of other children’s books, this is one that I don’t mind reading (over and over and over…) as well. The text and the illustrations work together to make you feel like you are actually a part of the story and I’m looking forward to checking out the other books in the series with my daughter.
The Mud Bug – I loved the bright colors and the wonderful illustrations. My girls (4 and 6) had me read them this book at least a dozen times in the first few days since receiving it in the mail. I highly recommend this book for any child that is in a similar situation as Paris.
