Oh my heavens! This is my favorite new children's book. It gently introduces the idea of adoption and unique looking families to children with sweet prose, lovely illustrations, and a guessable story-line until the last few pages. I thought I knew where it was going but it was even better than I thought. The first time I read it outloud to my 4 and 2 year old my voice caught in my throat and I became choked up.
They have asked for it several times and really like it! The message is subtle enough to not feel like adoption propoganda, it doesn't even mention the word.
It is just a sweet story, and if wanted, can open the door for talking about what it could mean to have a family that doesn't "match."
I want every kid to read this book, not just kids from adoptive families!
