Protagonist: Stein family

Brief Summary: This book tells the story of a Jewish family who adopts a baby girl from Vietnam. It's a sweet story about family and adoption. It also shows a Jewish family in a contemporary setting without having a major focus on religion. Unfortunately, I was disappointed that the deptictions of Vietnam were filled with stereotypical images of people with slanted eyes who all look the same. Aside from those four pages, the rest of the book was quite enjoyable.

Ruth Excellent review. It is too bad that this important content was overshadowed by more stereotypic images in the illustrations!
