Book Review: I’m Having Twins! by Paris Morris

Happy Thursday, Zebee here. Today I have a cute little book to share with all of you. It’s called
I’m Having Twins! by Paris Morris. Paris is only ten and she’s written several books. All about her twin baby sisters. This is the first one in the series.

Paris is only three when her mommy and daddy tell her she’s going to be a big sister. She’s excited when she finds out she’s going to have two baby sisters. The story goes through the life of a three year old waiting to be a big sister.

The illustrations are very kid friendly. They are fun to look at with lots of things going on in each page.

Children of all ages who are going to be a big sister or brother will enjoy this series of books, especially if their mom is expecting twins.

In an article in the Contra Costa Times, Paris said "I love to write," the fifth-grader said. "I like how I can choose a story and people can hear my story."

The article goes on to say, “Paris said she came up with the idea for books a few years after her sisters were born. She said there weren't enough children's books about twins and wanted to see more.
While her father handles the business side, Paris also gets involved in the process, including the illustrations.
The book's illustrator, Barry Cervantes, is a father from the Philippines with a child about Paris' age. The Morrises connected with Cervantes through a Web site that connects freelance artists with work.”

So, where can you get this book and the others in the series?

Check out Paris’s web site. She has more books, news and coloring pages.

Okay, I’ve got to go over and see what Rebekha and Sally are up to. They are working on creating a logo for (my) summer camp. See you Sunday with more zoo news.

This book sounds fun. I love the illustrations. Simple and uncluttered, but so effective. Thanks for a great review.

Thanks for stopping by. Paris's book is the first in her series. I'll be reviewing more of her books in the future.
