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

I really love that the illustrations are cartoons. There isn't a certain representation of how a family should look in this book.
I went on Amazon to buy this book for a friend who is adopting and was surprised to find it had so many negative reviews. I agree that it may not be great for kiddo who was adopted at birth. But for those who are adopting toddlers thru elementary age from foster care...it's a must read in my opinion!!!
Thanks Todd for making a great book for those kiddos that come from difficult situations!!
