  • Joy of Sisters is a book about a set of twin sisters that may look alike, but are very different. It goes through the fact that they were born on that same day, they look alike, they do have things that are the same, but they also have stuff that is different. But they are not the same. We go through learning what makes them different, like their favorite colors, their favorite shapes, they toys that they loved the most and even what season is their 
favorite. Than we learn what makes them the same like the fun things they like to do and that they both dreamed the same dream to build a preschool where they could develop young minds to be creative and loving. This book is a gift to the hard work that Alecia and Elaine have put in over the years to develop children that are ready to take on the journey of school. The school started in 1990 and has been going strong ever since. This is just a little bit of thanks I give to them as we teach children what it is to be a twin and be a wonderful person. They are a great gift to the people of Folsom, CA
