Popular author-illustrator Parr illustrates the rewards of family ties in this heartfelt, supportive book geared toward adopted children and their parents. In each double-page spread, Parr completes the phrase "We belong together because . . ." with poignant explanations that touch upon basic, tangible needs ("You needed a home . . . and I had one to share") as well as emotional ones: "You needed someone to say 'I love you' . . . and we had love to give. Now we all have someone to kiss goodnight." As in Parr's The Family Book (2003), cheerful, friendly artwork, with thickly outlined forms and characters and a bold rainbow palette, inclusively depicts an array of children and familiesincluding one with a single parent and one with two dadsand emphasizes the rewards of adoption for adults and children alike. Apart from the subtitle, the text never uses the word adoption nor refers to the adoption process, keeping the focus squarely on the universal joys of sharing hearth and heart. Rosenfeld, Shelle
Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein...Well I've found another to add to the list: Todd Parr. * Kansas CITY Star *

ETA: I know a lot of the negative reviews feel that the child is portrayed as a victim needing rescuing. I really didn't see it that way at all and I've been a social worker in the adoption field even before I was an adoptive parent. As with all Todd Parr books, it uses very simple language with a very basic message, which is that our family belongs together.
