A To Z of Parenting Twins

Here presenting to you my 3rd Book Review and today I am going to tell you about Charu Sareen Gujjal’s ‘A to Z of Parenting Twins’. If you are expecting twins anytime soon or are already a parent of twins, then you should stick with this post till the end. If you are visiting my blog for the first time or after a very long time, here’s a quick update. I have added a new category on my blog for book reviews, do check it out for more book recommendations.

Hey guys, hope you all are doing well. I know I’ve been MIA here since last few weeks and it’s because I am planning to do a month-long Blog Train in June-July. Yes, you read it right! My blog is turning two so I thought why not plan a #BirthdayBlogTrain just like last year. The previous blog train was all about summers while this one will run under the theme ‘Monsoon’. The planning part is almost done and now we are prepping our train to embark on an amazing journey. Stay tuned as I will soon be sharing a blog with all the details! For now, let’s get started with the book review.

Book Title: A To Z of Parenting Twins

Genre: Parenting

Author: Charu Sareen Gujjal

Number of Pages: 58

About the Author

Charu Sareen Gujjal, is a former teacher and language trainer, turned into a writer and a passionate blogger. She actively writes about her parenting journey on her blog ‘The Mom Sagas’ where she records all her wonderful motherhood experiences and everyday sagas of raising twins.

Review: A To Z of Parenting Twins

Charu is a mom to three-year-old twins Aarav and Aarohi whom she lovingly calls A&A. In the words of the Author, ‘having twins is a one-of-its-kind experience. It is beautiful, joyful, rewarding but equally challenging and demanding’. And I can’t agree more with her. Although I’m not a twin parent, I can totally imagine what goes into parenting twins. It’s everything double! Double the struggles and double the fun.

As you can make up from the book title, A to Z of Parenting Twins, is about the author’s experience of raising twins. And, she has covered most of the common concerns and challenges faced by the parents of twins during the initial years. The best thing about the book is the value she has added in the form of tried and tested tips, tricks, and suggestions that could come handy for any twin parent in the moment of doubt and chaos.

A To Z of Parenting Twins by Charu Sareen Gujjal – Book Review

PIN IT!

The book has 26 chapters and each chapter is linked to an alphabet and deals with different aspects of parenting twins. To add that touch of fun and make it more interesting, the author has also talked about the myths and unknown facts about twins. And, some hilarious questions people ask about twins to their parents. I could connect some of the myths to our old Bollywood movies and one that topped the charts is ‘Judwaa’.

If one twin cries, the other will cry too is a myth!

The author has tried to cover all the topics from breastfeeding to potty training to maintaining a schedule and time management with kids. She has also shared a list of essential gears for twins required in the first year. All in all, I would say, the book is comprehensive yet concise. It covers everything that a parent of twins wants to know to make their parenting journey smooth and stress-free.

There’s a chapter dedicated to a father’s perspective on raising twins where Charu has interviewed her husband to share his point of view on different aspects of parenting. I found it quite relevant to ask a father about what he thinks and feels about raising twins. Since the role of a father is as important especially if you are in a nuclear setup.

I didn’t find any cons in the book but I really missed the pictures. I am sure the related pictures would have added a little more charm to the book.

Conclusion

A to Z of Parenting Twins is a very well written and easy to understand comprehensive guide for twin parents. All the chapters are well planned and outlined with the right kind of information which comes directly from the author’s parenting experience. I would recommend this book to all the twin parents especially to expecting and new parents. I am sure you will find this book really beneficial with all the valuable takeaways it offers.

    Thank you Neha, for your honest and wonderful review. I am glad you liked the book and found it valuable. I hope more parents enjoying reading it as much as you do.

    Btw, I so wanted to add pictures in the book but then restricted myself from sharing personal photos here. May be in the next one I will try to bring our face forward.

      It was a pleasure reading and reviewing your book, Charu. I am sure twin parents will love this book, it has so much to offer to its readers. I can understand your concern for using personal pics but do consider adding pics of gears and things you’ve mentioned in the book.
