From the Publisher"This may be the first library resource of its kind in two decades, perhaps ever. Although many children's literature bibliographies exist that regularly include the subject of adoption, this handy paperback is dedicated to the topic. . . . This reference work is an informative goldmine for librarians, parents, and teachers seeking appropriate reading opportunities for their special audiences."
"Meese (special education, Longwood U.) reviews 115 children's books that feature themes related to adoption and foster care, which are organized by grade level and summarized, with suggestions and themes. She provides guidelines for evaluating books included and not included on award-winning book lists, developmental issues related to adoption and foster care, and suggestions for positive language, discussion, and sensitive assignments."
