Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This interesting book is designed primarily for foster parents to share with their foster child, but any professional, including teachers, counselors, ministers or those in the legal profession, would benefit from reading it or having it in their office. All sides of the foster care situation are discussed with great sensitivity to the feelings of the foster child. Parents, foster parents, professionals as well as the court system are profiled with a point of view that everyone is working for the benefit of the foster child. Bright, watercolor illustrations portray families in all situations in the community and at home without necessarily relating specifically to the text. A lengthy note to foster parents and other adults further defines some of the issues surrounding foster care. 2002, Magination Press, Ages 4 to 10.
