This book is a wonderful and simple affirmation of the loving bond between parent and adopted child.
I didn't like the wording, 'You needed...' it made me think, "The poor child must be thinking, I need...and you have what I need".
I did not tell my husband how I felt about the book, just asked him to read it and give me his impression.
It's ok, but there are so many situations in the book and only one probably works for your kid that the rest don't really make much sense to them. But it's a good book. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Holly Bishop

I will not read this to my children. As others have said, this book creates this idea that the child was lacking and the generous adoptive family provided. Read morePublished 4 months ago by M. Zimmerman

Great, simple story about adoption. "You needed, we had..." A simple concept that was easy for my 4 & 6 year olds to understand and enjoy.Published 12 months ago by AMP69
Thank you Todd Parr!!! Someone has finally written a book about adoption for our situation. Not all children get an "adoption plan" from a "loving birth family". Read morePublished 15 months ago by Amazon Customer
