It’s true that most little chicks have mothers who are hens, puppies have fathers who are dogs, elephants have elephant families, and ants have little baby ants, but then there are families who are different. Like mine! It’s great being different! I’m a chick, and my mommy is a cat. And I think it’s amazing! My mommy’s got lovely soft fur, whiskers that tickle me, and a long, beautiful tail. What more could I ask for? Would you like to hear my story?
A story that explores diversity and adoption in a fun way, raising awareness of how every child is entitled to a family based on love.
“An excellent piece of bibliotherapy for adopted children. The bright, colored-pencil illustrations of pudgy chicks and cats add exuberance to the simply and wryly told tale.”–Kirkus Reviews
