Grades 1-3

The story of eight-year-old Jennifer Jordan-Wong, a child given up by her biological parents, who has lived in a foster home and who is now legally adopted. This true story tells about Jennifer's experiences with foster parents, social workers, and getting used to the new life she leads with her adoptive family.

An excellent book for adoptive families and children. I would use it to teach about how all families are different.

For social studies, this book is a great way to spark cultural awareness in young learners. The biography is about an 8-year-old girl who had been in several foster homes until she was adopted. This book also brings another opportunity to increase the student's vocabulary and information about the world. For example, the adoption process and the court system are mentioned.

This is another day in the life of a girl named Jennifer who was adopted. The pictures are also black and white. This book talks about her biological parents and the foster families she lived with before she was adopted. Those elements are good for lifebooks. This book also looks dated.
