ABC, Adoption & Me: A Multicultural Picture Book for Adoptive Families by Gayle H. Swift
An award-winning book about adoption that celebrates the blessing of family and addresses the difficult issues as well. With exuberant illustrations and a diverse representation of families, ABC, Adoption & Me deepens understanding of what it means to be an adoptive family. It provides talking points that bring families closer, and presents adoption as a safe topic. Kids report that ABC, Adoption & Me expresses their complicated feelings in a way that makes them feel normal and which makes it easy for them to discuss with their families. "Most adoption books only talk about the good part of adoption. ABC shows adoption from the kid's side." Includes a parent guide.
