Author and mother of four Amanda Hamm provides insight and humor in this baby care book disguised as a memoir. Written as a collection of essays, Double Take is easy for busy parents to pick up between diaper changes. New and expecting parents will find valuable tips and a candid picture of life with two newborns, while more seasoned parents can find twin-specific information without being bored by a rehash of basic baby care. Double Take is a must read for anyone expecting twins and an entertaining read for any parent.
Note from the author:
As my only nonfiction title, it’s probably not surprising that Double Take has a backstory. In 2009, I was asked to write a weekly blog for a parenting site run by our local newspaper. I wrote it for a about a year before I quit because I was getting bored and was afraid my posts might start to reflect that. I originally intended to compile the essays only to have a copy for my family. I thought my kids might find the stories entertaining. (One of them has read it several times and occasionally quotes me to me. It’s a little scary.)
