Twins hold a special fascination for both children and grown-ups. We love to look at them, hear stories about them, and best of all, meet them. In the United States today, there are more twins than ever before. Double Take: The Story of Twins is an in-depth introduction to the lives of twins, multiples, and conjoined twins. Readers will learn why twinning takes place and meet five sets of twins.
