What is it like to share a birthday with a bother or sister? What do you do when another member of the family looks just like you, has the same talents, and sometimes seems to think the same? How does it feel to be always considered part of a duo, and to be mixed up even by your own parents?

In the third book by Maxine B. Rosenberg and George Ancona, four sets of young twins—two identical and two fraternal—reveal these and other challenges, rewards, and surprises that accompany twinship. Stamped with the award-winning team’s customary warmth, humor, and candor, Being a Twin, Having a Twin offers a remarkable inside look at a phenomenon that has provoked curiosity and fascination since ancient times.
