The night I introduced this new book, the kids resisted, pleading for a Dr Seuss variety instead. However, all resistance stopped when I read the title to them: "Maybe Days: a book for children in foster care". They were stone silent and ready to listen to this book about them.
This book is really well-illustrated and throughout the entire book, the kids pointed to pictures exclaiming "That's me!"..."That's you!"..."That is child services!". Suffice it to say, the kids, ages 4,6 and 8, really were able to identify with the story and were very attentive. This one reading alone was sufficient. The kids have not asked to read it again. They do ask a lot of the same questions that are in the book (Will we go home? Do we get to see our parents for Christmas?, etc). Because of this book, when they ask these questions, we all can rally around the same answer, "Maybe...".
This is a good tool to help a foster family with new foster child transitions. Even though we have only read it one time, I'm glad we have it in our home.
Reading this book together is a good way to start conversations with children about their feelings and concerns. There is also an excellent guide at the end of the book for Foster Parents and other adults.
