My son has begun to read this book and, while he often breaks away from it because he is sad that Jazzy got adopted while her brother stayed with her birth mother, I am hoping he will see that he is "adopted and amazing" too. That is the uplifting message I like about this story. What I would like to see in future books in the series is more conversations between adoptees and their adoptive and biological family members and friends about being adopted, conversations that reinforce for adoptee readers that it is possible to be adopted and be completely loved and do great things. All in all, I am excited about this series!
For our family, this was an important theme.
Unlike most adoptee stories, this book gives strength to both the biological and adoptive families equally. I really like this. I found that this book helped explain the transition as both natural and challenging with beautiful illustrations of what it's really like within that duality of an open adoption,
"When they learned she was adopted, most people assumed she didn't know anything about Carlos and Antonia. But, in reality, her birth family was an important part of her life, because hers was an open adoption. Most people were surprised to learn that she visited her family".
This series has so much room to grow and expand other characters roles (Jazzy's two sets of siblings), that mirror other families who are blended by adoption. The benefit for the reader is that the author is not only an adoptive parent but a strong advocate for bullying. I encourage you to check this book out If your looking to start your early reader on a series that has an encouraging theme about inclusiveness in an open adoption.
