Every parent can appreciate this book's theme of generosity and love. Although this book is dedicated first and foremost to adoptive families, and though all adoptions are different and some adoptive families may not identify as much with the message of the book, it's really for all families. Suffused with bright colors, the happy stick figures in the illustrations reflect the joy that comes from loving families. Even infants will delight in the brilliant hues -- deep blue skies, deep green grass, and people that come in purple, orange, and green.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
