Recommendation: Highly Recommended
Every child loves to hear stories and stories about themselves are some of their favorites! This book tells the heart-warming story of the beginning of a family through the miracle of adoption. Honesty and humor are masterfully woven together as you join this family on their journey.
Positives: A strong sense of family is evident throughout. The illustrations provide entertainment and humor. I particularly liked the honesty with which the story is told.
Talking Points: Tell your child stories about them and their family members often. Tell them your family stories of faith, of how God has worked in the lives of people they know and love. Psalms 9:1 says, “I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 73:28 says “…I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.” We are told over and over again in Scripture to tell of all that God has done for us. What a treasure to give your children a rich family history of stories about the faithfulness and glories of God.
