In celebration of Adoption month I thought I would talk about one of my favorite books about adoption. I know so many people who have adopted, it is a beautiful thing.
I Love You Like Crazy Cakes by Rose A. Lewis and beautifully illustrated by Jane Dyer is a wonderful book about the joy of adoption. The cover is so perfect.....friends of mine also adopted from China and this book reminds me of their little girls. It is a hard journey to make but one that has a wonderful ending. There are so many different kinds of adoption stories, what I liked about this one is that it is based on the author's own experience. I am also a huge Jane Dyer fan and find her illustrations very warm and inviting. This is a great book to just read to any child, not just children who were adopted. It is really just a very sweet story of a mother's love for her child.
