2.0 out of 5 stars Just ok., May 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Big Book of Me (Hardcover)
I was disappointed - there's way too much to fill out with not enough spaces for photos. There's also no section in the book to follow the baby's development month by month, which is what I was looking for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, May 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have to say I was disappointed with this book, especially after reading all of the positive reviews. The story is very focused on the adoptive parents' journey as opposed to the journey of the child - which is more of what we were looking for. After all, we feel adoption is about finding a family for a child, not finding a child for a family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great overview of international issues surrounding care for children, November 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great resource for those interested in an introduction to the issues and complexities of caring for and working with children in international development situations. The author does a great job of outlining some of the toughest issues faced by development workers and complexities of child protection in an international context.

3.0 out of 5 stars Paints a somewhat accurate picture, but also poses a risk to victims, November 26, 2008
I work for a well known organization in Southeast Asia working against trafficking and sexual exploitation. While I believe that Skinner had good intentions when writing this piece, I do not believe it was written in a way sensitive to the confidentiality needs of trafficking victims and survivors. Rather than painting a picture of How to Buy a Child Slave: 101 (which is my own title for this book), as well as (in my opinion) a "pat the US State department on the back" piece, I feel it could have done a much better job at challenging those in the West to take a closer look at responsible consumer habits, the demand for slaves, advocacy strategies for international slavery, and LAST BUT NOT LEAST - the exploitation and trafficking that is happening in OUR OWN BACKYARDS - the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
