Author: De Haan, LindaBrand: Brand: Tricycle PressFeatures: Used Book in Good ConditionBinding: HardcoverNumber Of Pages: 32Release Date: 01-05-2004Details: Product Description Join newlyweds King Lee and King Bertie on their journey into the noisy jungle. The kings are greeted by wild animal families, but the royal travelers suspect that something more significant awaits them in the trees. King & King soon discover that there'¬?s no adventure more wonderful than starting a family of their own. Jubilant sequel to Lambda Literary Award nominee KING & KING.   Subtle clues on each page lead readers to a surprise ending. In a starred review, Kirkus called KING & KING "A joyful celebration that . . . firmly challenges the assumptions established and perpetuated by the entire canon of children'¬?s picture books." An adoption story for everyone. From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 2–In this follow-up to King & King (Tricycle, 2002), King Lee and King Bertie have just married and embark on a honeymoon. As they fly off to jungle country, the two men soon discover that their cat has stowed away in their suitcase. The travelers happily tramp through the wilderness and paddle down a river, observing the wildlife as they go. Before long, they have a strange feeling that something is following them. Upon returning home, they discover another stowaway in their suitcase–this time it's a young girl from the jungle, whom they joyfully adopt and everyone lives happily ever after. The mixed-media collage illustrations are colorful with lots to look at on each page–perhaps too much, as some of the spreads are a bit cluttered. Bertie's travel diary is reproduced on the book's centerfold, hinting at the surprise ending. The text is brief and fun, and the relationships are treated matter-of-factly. However, children may wonder why the men do not try to find the little girl's family, or check to see if anyone is searching for her. All in all, this story about a nontraditional family is a bit heavy-handed. –Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

We Belong Together: A Book About Adoption and Families $17.39

Author: Parr, ToddBrand: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersEdition: IllustratedFeatures: Megan Tingley BooksBinding: HardcoverFormat: Picture BookNumber Of Pages: 32Release Date: 01-11-2007Details: Product Description In a kid-friendly, accessible way, this book explores the ways that people can choose to come together to make a family by showing one perspective on the adoption experience. We Belong Together is about sharing your home and sharing your heart to make a family that belongs together. With an understanding of how personal and unique each adoption is, and that not everyone comes to it in the same way, Todd Parr's colorful art explores the meaning of family. From Booklist Popular author-illustrator Parr illustrates the rewards of family ties in this heartfelt, supportive book geared toward adopted children and their parents. In each double-page spread, Parr completes the phrase "We belong together because . . ." with poignant explanations that touch upon basic, tangible needs ("You needed a home . . . and I had one to share") as well as emotional ones: "You needed someone to say 'I love you' . . . and we had love to give. Now we all have someone to kiss goodnight." As in Parr's The Family Book (2003), cheerful, friendly artwork, with thickly outlined forms and characters and a bold rainbow palette, inclusively depicts an array of children and families—including one with a single parent and one with two dads—and emphasizes the rewards of adoption for adults and children alike. Apart from the subtitle, the text never uses the word adoption nor refers to the adoption process, keeping the focus squarely on the universal joys of sharing hearth and heart. Rosenfeld, Shelle About the Author Todd Parr has inspired and empowered children around the world with his bold images and positive messages. He is the bestselling author of more than forty books, including The Goodbye Book, The Family Book, The I Love You Book, and It's Okay to be Different. He lives in Berkeley, California.Package Dimensions: 9.9 x 9.8 x 0.4 inchesLanguages: English

A little girl by the name of Sophia is heartbroken after she discovers all of her crayons are broken. Sophia’s friend’s share their crayons with her as she experiences seeing her parents choose to give the gift of surrogacy to their friends. Sophia’s Broken Crayons is a very easy and understanding way to help explain surrogacy to a young child which include questions such as why can’t everyone have a baby? Why would someone choose a surrogate to help grow their family? Why would someone choose to become a surrogate? Follow the story of Sophia as she learns about sharing and helping out friends in need as well as why moms and dads choose surrogates to help grow their families and why surrogates choose to help other families that way. From the Back Cover: Why is the sky blue? Why do dogs bark? When will I be tall? Where do babies come from? Kids ask a lot of questions. Some of them are easier to answer than others.

Two Dads Under the Christmas Tree (1) (Jayden's Funny Tales) Two Dads Under the Christmas Tree (1) (Jayden's Funny Tales)
Two Dads Under the Christmas Tree $16.99

Author: Mile, Tobias Brand: True Colors Lab Publishing Binding: Hardcover Number Of Pages: 36 Release Date: 10-09-2020 Details: Product Description Two Dads Under the Christmas Tree is not just a children's book.  It's a book for all about Adoption. In this first story of the series, Jayden will try to tell everyone what Adoption is and how beautiful the change in a child's life can be, thanks to this form of authentic Love. Inside, you will find fun, touching moments, and a deep sense of humanity that makes the book a tool for parents and teachers to encourage children to value diversity. Often, children only see families that look like theirs. As a window into the life of a nontraditional family, Jayden's story can be a first step to instill in children a sense of inclusivity and respect for others. In the summer of 2018, during a business trip to Venice, Italy, Tobias Mile was looking for a new idea for his next book. Destiny - as he told us - introduced him to this uncommon Italian family. Upon learning their incredible story, he was inspired to create something special featuring their adorable adopted son, Jayden. After this trip, Tobias approached our publishing company with the idea of a series of funny stories about adoption, human rights, solidarity, and respect for diversity, told by this smart child in unusual language. We immediately knew this was a story that needed to be shared to raise awareness about adoption and reach countries where same-sex couples who wish to adopt are discouraged or even denied. This is a perfect Christmas gift for all open-minded people who want to share with others and teach their children that Love has no sex, color, nor limits. About the Author Tobias Mile is the pseudonym of an author who lives in his dream place, Los Angeles. The decision not to appear personally was dictated by his conviction that the audience should be more focused on the crucial social matter he writes about, rather than his identity. Tobias, in addition to striving strenuously for human rights through his writing, is also a painter, or, as he likes to call himself, "just a lover of Art and Beauty. "Two Dads Under the Christmas Tree" is the first book of Jayden's Funny Tales, soon followed by the second How to Survive this Spirited Sister! and the third Charcoalyn, the Coolest Princess.
