This simple and beautifully illustrated story is about an adopted little boy and his journey through his early years. Sensitive and likable, we’re with Eddie the moment he learns he’s adopted. At school when he is teased by bullies about being adopted, his mom coaches him through the situation, which ultimately sets the course of his life with personal empowerment. Over time, Eddie feels a strong “void” and becomes curious about his biological parents, which ultimately leads him to find out more. ADOPTED ED concludes with a section of famous people who were adopted.
Adopted Ed is an amazingly cute story on adoption. Beautifully told and illustrated, I love its charm and the heartfelt emotion of little Eddie’s journey. I especially love its message of empowerment, which will resonate with every person, whether you’re adopted or not. What a wonderful and needed little treasure.
“Terrific new book…it really teaches kids what (adoption) is about”
