Lucky Twins: A “lucky” children’s book about identical twin egg yolks and identical twin tots written by an egg yolk – Yolkster Ollie.
This unusual work helps identical twins understand how truly special they are – identical yet different in many ways. Identical twin babies are rare – 3 to 4 births per 10,000 – and the odds of finding twin egg yolks are 1/1,000! In ancient folklore, double yolks were thought to provide great luck and happiness. Double eggs were also connected to the birth of twins and new ideas. Ancients believed that double yolks portend an event that will happen two-fold in the future. eBook & Paperback Formats – Buy Now
The backstory: I cracked an egg and twin yolks appeared in the pan. Like most of you, I had never encountered twin yolks. So imagine my shock when the next 11 eggs also contained twin yolks, along with 24 twin yolks in a subsequent carton. I spent hours capturing twin yolks with my camera. And then it occurred to me: This would be an inspiring story for tiny tot twins – especially identical twins! – Yolkster Ollie’s Alter Ego (Coming Soon: Yolkster Mollie’s book).
