What critics are saying...
"This book is a trilingual language book, offering English, French, and Spanish. This story portrays the love and companionship between two sisters, sisters that happen to be twins. The story provides excitement, activity, and togetherness. The bond between the two girls is unbreakable. Their day consists of doing everything together. The two of them share the love of gardening with their mother, smelling flowers, playing outdoors with their dog, running errands with their mother, and going on special trips into town with her. Nicole Weaver has written an exceptional story. Not only does the book provide a fun, lovable, and family oriented theme, but it also provides an educational spin. This allows for My Sister is My Best Friend to be more marketable, given its cultural slant, while also offering a fun way for children and adults alike to experience new languages."

"A celebration of family and bonding that shines in the wonderful sentences conjured by author, Nicole Weaver. " Sebastian A. Jones Author of I am Mixed Children's Book
"My Sister is my Best Friend - a trilingual story written primarily in English, with secondary and tertiary texts in French and Spanish, is a terrific book which provides a fun way to introduce kids to foreign language. Twin sisters who are also each other's best friends enjoy playing, pretending make-believe, exploring...and more; all in the comfort of the loving relationship they share with one another. Author, Nicole Weaver, who teaches French and Spanish in high school, has written a book that is as much a joy to read as it is educational in its content. Colorful illustrations are a great addition to this charming book." Literary Classics Book Awards & Reviews
