There once was a bird name Choco
Whose friends all thought he was loco
He searched for a mother
One beast to another
Was it sad? Well maybe un poco
Note: This is such an awesome adoption book.
Memorable characters? Check
Eye-catching illustrations? Check
Multi-cultural approach? Check
Anvil-laden message? Nope! Thank goodness.
To introduce the concept of adoption to a 2-year-old, I don’t need the Gilbert Gottfried approach to storytelling – “Cause he’s ADOPTED! Get it?! It’s about ADOPTION.”
Never overly earnest or cloying, Keiko Kaza just tells a story about a bird and his journey.
So, is 2 a little early to introduce Joseph Campbell?
