This book is written in a very interesting way. The author writes in first person to her daughter. It was a touching story about a lady from America who went to China to adopt a baby girl. The mother was very emotional about her daughter, and their connection was beautiful. I enjoyed this book very much. I would be great to read this book about adoption to a class of young students.

This book is a great story of adoption that many families can relate to. It has personal meaning for me as it was the first book added to my niece's book collection when she was adopted from China. It takes me back to that first summer we were able to spend with her. I believe it was a character in Inkheart (Funke, 2003) that described books as memory keepers. The mind links books we read to time periods, places, or events in our lives. This couldn't be truer in regards to this book! Despite developmental delays when first joining our family, Ty is now in first grade and is a shining example of the effect loving parents have on a young child. Many studies have been conducted on Chinese adoptees to Americans and how parents must help these children maintain their Asian identity as they mature. Some universities, such as the University of Maryland, will begin offering coursework in the "adoptee experience." These courses will help students understand the cultural rules that force families to give up children or see America as a better alternative to life in the adoptee's native land. While coursework is a good attempt at helping students find answers, no coursework in the world will compete with an open, loving relationship with parents, biological or adoptive. Library Implications: The librarian will encounter adoptive students in the library, whether American-born or of diverse back grounds. This book is a great way to start a discussion of adoption with older children. The culture of China and other countries could be studied relating to adoption. Family dynamics could also be compared among countries, and the role extended families have in various cultures. ** The topic of adoption can be very personal for some students and the librarian should consider carefully the depth of the study and perhaps even notify parents before the topic is introduced.

I thought this was a great story! The central message of the story is that adoption is great, and can help make families. I love this story because of its plot. A woman travels all the way to China to adopt a baby girl. The woman proclaims her love for the baby in a variety of ways. In addition, I love the illustrations. Each page has a light yellow background which causes the reader to draw his or her eyes to the main focus on each page. For instance, my eye went right to the baby girl when she in sitting on the bed. Another reason why I loved this story is because of the way the author wrote it. In this story, the author is the main character, the mother. She placed herself into the story, and it is almost like she is writing a letter to her daughter about how thankful she is to have been able to adopt her. The last reason I enjoyed this story is because it is written about a great topic. Readers can see that adoption is not a bad thing, and that the adopting parents genuinely care about their child.

This is a great book to show children how the adoption process takes place. Don't get me wrong there are plenty other way to go about doing it, but this is a good book to answer that question. I like how it is multicultural. I also like how they show how important having their adopted child is. It shows that even though you are adopted you are still loved very much just like any other child.
