A Russian Adoption Journey
The author has written this book to tell the story of her child's adoption from Russia. The words are in a rhyming style and are accompanied by pictures. The book gives a little history of adoption through Russia and then talks about the steps to finally having the child home forever.
I had hoped, when I picked this book, to read a sweet story about adoption. But the rhyming words are not really a story, so much as a narrative or list of the steps. The pictures aren't very good and don't always fit with the words. Some of the illustrations and explanations might be a bit over the target age range for this book. Overall, I think the concept is sweet, but I'm sure there are better books out there for parents wanting to explain adoption to their children.
I received this book free of charge from BookLook Blogger in exchange for my honest review.
