"This book is a great read for any multiple birth family member. What a great perspective hearing from twins and their siblings on the dynamics of growing up in a multiple world. A wonderful book for families expecting twins, any family member already experiencing life with twins, and any age adult twins."--Kim England, president of Multiples of America "Throughout my research, I have found that parents of twins know they belong to a very special breed. Dara Lovitz offers a book that these parents will greet with delight. Twinsight highlights the searching questions that inform the daily life of all parents whose children have siblings: love, jealousy, empathy, exclusion, and responsibility. In addition, Lovitz addresses that very special perspective needed when a child has a powerful bond, an intimate identity, and an accompanying need for individuality with a twin."--Terri Apter, author of The Confident Child: Raising Children to Believe in Themselves
