Books Books Books!

6 08 2008

For several months I have been doing research on children’s books on adoption. There are tons and tons out there, but I can’t seem to get my hands on any. Every book store that I go to has about 1 or 2 and that’s it. It is very frustrating and I don’t want to spend a bunch of money of books when I don’t agree with the messages and verbiage. Thankfully, Becky posted about the adoption books that she reads to her children, and gave a little synopsis of each. It was so incredibly helpful and I appreciate it so, so much.

Check out this site here – it is a complete resource for adoption books of all kids! It’s great! So, I went to this site and looked up the books to order, then I ran across several more that looked interesting. Here are the ones that I am planning on purchasing:

Twice Upon a Time: Born and Adopted- Elea.nora Patte.rson
How I Was Adopted – Joa.nna Co.le
A Blessing from Above – Pa.tti Hen.ders.on
Tell Me Again About the Night I was Born – Ja.mie Cur.tis
My Family is Forever– Na.ncy Car.lson
Adopted and Loved Forever– Anne.tta E. Delli.nger and Pat.ricia Mat.toz.zi

These are ones that I ran across and am considering, but I need some feedback. Does anyone have, or has anyone read any of these books? I am looking for positive or negative feedback so I don’t waste money! Thanks in advance!

Any feedback would be great! Also, if you have feedback on some of the ones I am for sure on, go ahead and give it! Thanks!


Adoptive Families magazine (if you don’t have a subscription, get one!) August issue rates these children’s books as “must haves”

Happy Adoption Day by McCutc.heon
We Wanted You by L.iz Ro.sen.burg
Borya and the Burps by McNa.mara

Through Moon and Stars and Night Skies by An.n Tur.ner
In My Heart by M.olly B.ang
Megan’s Birthday Tree by La.urie

None of which are on my list…. What to do, what to do?

I’m glad you liked Tapestry Books. I just edited to do that on my post! I am going to check these books out. Like I said, I’ve not bought any in years so, I know there are lots I’m not familiar with.I’ve seen Over the Moon at the library but, don’t remember enough about it to remember why I didn’t care for it. Just remember that I didn’t! That helps, hugh?!
