T is for Twins (0-5yrs)
"A" is for apples of my eyes. "B" is for babies. full of surprise. Follow this delightful rhyme through T is for Twins and watch how the author captures the essence of the twin relationship by pairing each letter of the alphabet with an adorable photograph of a set(s) of twins. Part of its appeal is the clever addition of a clear plastic pocket where parents can insert a picture of their own twins and include them in the book.

Introducing Rip and Rap. twin sheepdogs who look exactly alike except for one extra stripe on Rap's tail. But when Rip gets a mud stain on his tail, it looks just like Rap's, and nobody in the farmyard can tell the two apart! Though similar in appearance, Rip and Rap are quite different in character, and Rap causes quite a commotion when he decides he doesn't want to be a sheepdog. Debbie Harter's bold, colourful artwork keeps up with the fun of the tale.

Rip and Rap is a perfect gift for siblings, especially twins, to share, with its strong emphasis on the importance of being yourself.
