While the book is a cute story and a nice read for small children to answer the question of "where did I come from?" physically, it would be totally inappropriate for an adoptive parent to read it to his or her child. We will eventually end up giving the book to another friend who does have biological children as it is still a nice story, just not at all what we expected. 4 stars is for the story itself, but the book description would get 1 star.
I also didn't care for the way the polar bears rushed to the hospital (an igloo) pulled by a sleigh of huskies - why would animals be pulled by other animals, and why would bears who hang out outside in the snow and swim in the ocean on previous pages give birth in a hospital and then not nurse their baby, as polar bears would actually do? It's odd to me whenever animals are depicted bottle-feeding their babies.
The book has a positive message of babies coming from God, which I agree with wholeheartedly, but the writing style just didn't make it an appealing story to me.
