Would it surprise you to know that 1 in 30 children born today is a twin? That is why Raising Twins: A Real Life Adventure is a relevant book today. Written by Freya Manfred the book discusses the special challenges as well as the unusual rewards that occur when a family includes twins. The book is not a "how to" book but rather it is based on notes taken by the author from the time of pregnancy until the twins went to college. Manfred used improvisation and adventure when she and her husband found that many of the theories of today were inadequate in helping with some of the problems they encountered like sleep deprivation, handling sibling spats diplomatically and choosing schools while at the same time nurturing the children's own gifts and creativity. Manfred says "Perhaps the extra energy level of twins puts a parent in the position of being an avid follower and facilitator; it takes too much energy to steer them or control them". Raising Twins: A Real Life Adventure is be a book parents of twins will be interested in reading but also one that twins themselves might enjoy reading. It would certainly be a meaningful and relevant gift to give new parents of twins.
