Adopted Ed-Book Review!

November is National Adoption Month and This is A Great Book To Review!

Along with the month long celebration. A very special Adoption Day~November 20, 2010,marked the 11th National Adoption Day. It's a special day because thousands of adoptions are finalized in court rooms all across the United States.

This simple and beautifully illustrated story is about an adopted little boy and his journey through his early years. Sensitive and likable, little Eddie is just like every other kid, eating ice cream and playing ball. At school when he is teased by bullies about being adopted, his mom coaches him through the situation, which ultimately sets the course of his life with personal empowerment. Over time, Eddie feels a strong "void" and becomes curious about his biological parents, which ultimately leads him to find out more. ADOPTED ED concludes with a section of famous people who were adopted. 

This is such a cute little book as not only  does it teach children about adoption but it also has beautiful illustrations in it! It tells everyone that it is OK to be different as no child should be teased. It shows that each child is special no matter who you are. I think that my grandchildren would love to read this book even though they are not adopted they can still learn from Adopted Ed!
