About the Author

Keiko Kasza was born on a small Japanese island in the Inland Sea of Japan. She grew up in a typical Japanese extended family with her parents, two brothers, and grandparents. Uncles, aunts, and cousins also lived nearby. "All the steps I took growing up were very normal," Ms. Kasza says. "The only unusual thing I did was go to college in the United States." She graduated with a degree in graphic design from California State University at Northridge. Ms. Kasza married an American, and the United States has been her home ever since.

We have purchased multiple copies of this book--one for each of our adopted children and now this copy for my cousin's adopted daughter. It's a great book that touches on the simple fact that a child doesn't need to look like it's mother. Choco is looking for his mother whom he assumes must look like him, but ends up finding the perfect mother who looks nothing like him or the other children she has adopted. My children are both 8 now, but it was one of their favorite books when they were younger and they were very excited to buy it for the new addition to our family.

This is my favorite book about adoption. It illustrates that a parent's love for their children is not based on the children looking like the parents. Makes a great gift for anyone adopting...esp inter-racially.

This is a great book for young children who were adopted. I used it to introduce the topic of adoption to my older 'bio' daughter when we were preparing to adopt our younger daughter. It really reinforces the concept that people do not have to look alike to be a family, and that a child's 'real' parents are the ones who are there every day taking care of him, lovinging him, and keeping him safe. It is a good book for non-adopted children as well, who are often confused about the issue of 'real' parents.

This book was a spectacular bedtime book for my daughter. She was only three years old when I began reading this book to her and she really enjoyed it. Now she is nine years old and she reads Choco to my 10 month old son. This book was very helpful to my adopted brother who had questions about who his mother was. I have recommended this book to my friends and I have received great feedback.

This is a very sweet book that shows that families are not bound by looks but by the love you feel for each other.
