Read full description of the books:
This is a beautiful story about adoption and explaining to a child how and why they were adopted. With the premise of a mummy bear and a baby bear, the mummy bear tells the baby bear about how she wished for him and how lucky she is now that she has him.
Even with the premise of wishing, the story does mention that the process took a lot of time, even that there are phone calls and paperwork that need doing. Even that Mama Bear didn't know what kind of bear would she get, boy, girl, dark fur, or light fur.
It is a really sweet story that explains to kids that adoption is about one person (in this case) wanting a child so much that they wished so hard and made it happen. It covers why baby bear's original mama didn't wish to have him, and even how family is family despite the different colour of fur. Using animals in kid's books is always a classic way of telling stories about important messages and this works really well with these bears.
The illustrations accompany the texts really well to because while the story is being told to the baby bear, Barley, it shows him in a comfortable home, in the special cuddle spot with his mum, and how he is surrounded by a loving family.
I think this is a great book that deals with those possibly awkward questions from kids trying to fit into the family, or just curious about the differences they've started to notice. With no experience in this area I can only assume, but it seems like a great story to explain the few crucial questions about how and why the adoption took place, as well as remind the child they are loved and wanted.
