Adoption - A Bibliography

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Assisting children to celebrate their adoption or deal with its emotional issues is the goal of these books for young readers.

Is That Your Sister? A True Story of Adoption, by Catherine Bunin, Sherry Bunin, & Sheila Kelly Welch
This true story, told by six-year-old Catherine, with the help of her mother, explains the process of adoption. It also answers questions about interracial adoption from the viewpoint of a child.

A Mother for Choco, by Keiko Kasza
Choco wishes he had a mother, but who could she be? He sets off to find her, asking all kinds of animals, but he doesn't meet anyone who looks just like him. He doesn't even think of asking Mrs. Bear if she's his mother-but then she starts to do just the things a mommy might do. And when she brings him home, he meets her other children-a piglet, a hippo, and an alligator-and learns that families can come in all shapes and sizes and still fit together.

Tell Me Again About the Night I Was Born, by Jamie Lee Curtis
The excitement of a young child's adoption is felt by readers as she asks her parents to tell her again about the night on which she was born, recounting herself the details she already knows by heart.

Allison, by Allan Say
When Allison tries on the red kimono her grandmother has sent her, she is suddenly aware that she resembles her favorite doll more than she does her mother and father. When her parents try to explain that she is adopted, her world becomes an uncomfortable place. She becomes angry and withdrawn. She wonders why she was given up, what her real name is, and whether other children have parents in faraway countries. Allison's doll becomes her only solace until she finds a stray cat in the garden and learns the true meaning of adoption and parental love.

Over the Moon: An Adoption Tale, by Karen Katz
A loving couple dream of a baby born far away and know that this is the baby they have been waiting to adopt.
