It might be a better read for a grandparent or someone else related to a twin, not a mom.
The stories were good but rather one-faceted. I have read a LOT of the Chicken Soup books and this one fell rather short. I usually feel moved by quite a few of the stories in the books but in this one - not so much. It was okay just not exceptional like Chicken Soup for the Soul Love Stories: Stories of First Dates, Soul Mates, and Everlasting Love or Chicken Soup for the Surviving Soul: 101 Healing Stories About Those Who Have Survived Cancer.
Also, I would have liked a section on multiple births - above the triplet mark. Triplets is as high as this book goes.
Don't get me wrong - it's worth reading. And like all the Chicken Soup books, a lot of the contributors have given contact information. I am going to give it to my daughter-in-love and hopefully she'll be able to contact other mothers of twins and share their good (and bad) stories.
This collection of short stories covers everything from finding out about carrying more than one, to tips on how to organize your time when caring for twins and multiples. Some are poignant and heartfelt, while others are witty and full of good advice. I sometimes felt like someone took a passage from my own life with twins and told an account of it.
Anyone who has ever experienced the world of twins or more will find themselves relating to several of these wonderful anecdotes. And, you know, that's real "Chicken Soup for the Soul"!
