The Twins' Blanket
Author: Hyewon Yum
One of School Library Journal's Best Picture Books of 2011
New in paperback, this beloved picture book from Hyewon Yum, The Twins' Blanket, is about siblings, sharing, and growing up--starring a Korean-American family--and is now celebrating its 10th Anniversary!
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.
