My thoughts.....

by marie99 (WorldCat user published 2009-12-18) Excellent Permalink

Based on the author's adoption experience, rich vibrant illustrations accompany the story of a couple dreaming of, and finally bringing home a new member of the family from far away. Told in simple, yet powerful language, I think this would make a great read aloud story.
