The book's drawings obviously portrayed two asian girls. The author of the book is a twin and of Korean descent. It did not mention anything about culture or that of the such. I wouldn't say this is the best "multicultural" book to read. ( )

Two twin sisters have a blanket that they sleep with every night. As they grow up the blanket becomes to small and they are scared that they are also growing apart. This is not true they learn that they are closer than ever. Recommend for ages 9 to 13.

Book is about two twin sisters who shared most of their things and one day they wanted their own blankets

Summary: Two sisters share a blanket but as they get older and get bigger it does not fit them both comfortably. It is a compromise bout growing up and dealing with changes.

Personal connection: This book was used in our text set, and I think it is a good book for kids to learn about growing up. The illustrations are really adorable, and the story was simple to follow and well written.

Class use: Explain a time that they outgrew something that they loved and talk about how it made them feel. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374379726, Hardcover)

One of School Library Journal’s Best Picture Books of 2011

These look-alike twins have always shared everything—their room, their toys, a crib, and, since the day they were born, a blanket. But as they grow into new beds, they need new blankets, too. Now they face a new dilemma: they don’t know how  not to share.

Told from the perspective of two five-year-olds, The Twins’ Blanket playfully illuminates squabbles and affection between young siblings. Yum’s minimalistic art astutely captures these twins’ emotions as they toss, turn, and tug their new and old blankets—and embrace their growing independence.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:16:46 -0400)

Two twin girls, who have always shared everything, sleep in separate beds with their own blankets for the first time.
