    It is difficult for me to objectively review this book I have read this book to my son almost everyday for over three years This beautifully written book is about a bird named Choco This bird needs a mother Choco looks everywhere but cannot find a mother who looks exactly like him The walrus, giraffe and penguin all encourage Choco to look elsewhere for his mother When Choco sees Mrs Bear he knows she cannot be his mother because she looks nothing like him Soon, Choco discovers that Mrs It is difficult for me to objectively review this book I have read this book to my son almost everyday for over three years This beautifully written book is about a bird named Choco This bird needs a mother Choco looks everywhere but cannot find a mother who looks exactly like him The walrus, giraffe and penguin all encourage Choco to look elsewhere for his mother When Choco sees Mrs Bear he knows she cannot be his mother because she looks nothing like him Soon, Choco discovers that Mrs Bear can kiss like a mom, hug like a mom and dance like a mom Mrs Bear asks Choco if she could be his mom Reluctantly, Choco goes home with Mrs Bear only to find her other children, Hippy, Ally and Piggy who also look nothing like Mrs Bear.I love this book because my Korean son looks nothing like me We share this story and can talk about what it means to be a mother and a family Keiko Kasza does an excellent job making a complex topic simple and special

    Twenty years after P.D Eastman s classic Are You My Mother , Keiko Kasza presents a heartwarming story of another lonely bird who sets off to find his mother but is disappointed after interviewing a giraffe, penguin, and walrus, to find that no mother shares his wings, his yellow color, his round cheeks, or his striped feet When he spies Mrs Bear he knows she isn t his mother, but when he begins to cry she immediately comforts him, just as he imagines his mother would do When she suggests Twenty years after P.D Eastman s classic Are You My Mother , Keiko Kasza presents a heartwarming story of another lonely bird who sets off to find his mother but is disappointed after interviewing a giraffe, penguin, and walrus, to find that no mother shares his wings, his yellow color, his round cheeks, or his striped feet When he spies Mrs Bear he knows she isn t his mother, but when he begins to cry she immediately comforts him, just as he imagines his mother would do When she suggests that she could be his mother, he objects that she doesn t have his wings, yellow color, round cheeks, or striped feet She laughs, That would make me look very funny and invites him home to meet her other children, none of which are bears The story ends with the same resounding comfort as Eastman s classic, as four children snuggle with Mrs Bear, secure in her love even though she looks nothing like them.The straightforward plot communicates a profound principle that families need not be defined by biological similarity This point lends itself to heavy handedness, but it comes across here with simple good humor as Choco experiences a mother s love through his encounter with Mrs Bear This story may be especially appealing to children whose families have been formed through adoption, but other children will benefit from it as well

    This is the story of Choco a bird with no home or family One day he though that he was going to look for his mother and he set off to find her He asked the giraffe, penguin and walrus but they told him that they were not his mother because they were not like him Choco walk away very sad because he was not going to find someone like him He saw a bear and he started to cry because a bear could not be his mother since she was not like him The bear run towards him to see why he was crying so sh This is the story of Choco a bird with no home or family One day he though that he was going to look for his mother and he set off to find her He asked the giraffe, penguin and walrus but they told him that they were not his mother because they were not like him Choco walk away very sad because he was not going to find someone like him He saw a bear and he started to cry because a bear could not be his mother since she was not like him The bear run towards him to see why he was crying so she hug him, kiss him and make him laugh The bear asked him if she wanted her to be his mother but Choco told her that she was so different Then the bear invited Choco to go to her house to eat some pie and Choco accepted the invitation At the bear s house his three little sons welcomed them They were hippy, ally and piggy so Choco understood that they were different than their mother At the end Choco accepted his new mother just the way she was I love the book, it has a deep message The teacher can use this story to let children know that mothers are the ones who care for you and love even though they do not look like you I think children will enjoy reading the book It has nice pictures

    Oh my heavens This is my favorite new children s book It gently introduces the idea of adoption and unique looking families to children with sweet prose, lovely illustrations, and a guessable story line until the last few pages I thought I knew where it was going but it was even better than I thought The first time I read it outloud to my 4 and 2 year old my voice caught in my throat and I became choked up.They have asked for it several times and really like it The message is subtle enough Oh my heavens This is my favorite new children s book It gently introduces the idea of adoption and unique looking families to children with sweet prose, lovely illustrations, and a guessable story line until the last few pages I thought I knew where it was going but it was even better than I thought The first time I read it outloud to my 4 and 2 year old my voice caught in my throat and I became choked up.They have asked for it several times and really like it The message is subtle enough to not feel like adoption propoganda, it doesn t even mention the word.It is just a sweet story, and if wanted, can open the door for talking about what it could mean to have a family that doesn t match I want every kid to read this book, not just kids from adoptive families

    I guess this is very sappy story, but I really enjoyed it anyway, although I couldn t help thinking about the potential dangers some of these animals were to some of the others I read this because I loved this author s picture book The Dog Who Cried Wolf.The pictures in this book are wonderful, and it s a sweet story, and it s especially applicable for children in adoptive families.

    This book makes me cry every time I read it To see the mom bear with all her different children, it just reminds me of every single Foster Child that has ever come through my door.It also shows that you don t need to look alike to be a family, you only need love Wonderful for our trans racial family

    The adoption friendly version of P.D Eastman s Are You My Mother And such a better version too since it truly tells us what a family is It is not looking exactly the same It is the love shared.


  8. Sarah Sarah says:

    Probably my absolute favorite, adoption book to explain to children that you don t have to look alike to belong and be family It has engaging, colorful illustrations that draw my children further into the story My children s constant requests to read it again speaks for the book alone

    This is the picture book with the longest story of the ones about mothers and motherhood at my local branch, so I chose it as the first one in this storytime The pictures are done with bright colours and so would be visible even for children not sitting at the front With the story consisting of Choco going around and asking different animals if they are his mother, the narrative has a nice repetition to it with a slight vocabulary difference every time The tone of the story is also very playf This is the picture book with the longest story of the ones about mothers and motherhood at my local branch, so I chose it as the first one in this storytime The pictures are done with bright colours and so would be visible even for children not sitting at the front With the story consisting of Choco going around and asking different animals if they are his mother, the narrative has a nice repetition to it with a slight vocabulary difference every time The tone of the story is also very playfulDepending on their age and experience, some kids might not know all the animals in the book, but the illustrations of each are big and clear, helping them to understand the story and perhaps introducing some rare vocabulary such as walrus The scene where the bird Choco finds a bear mom and hugs, kisses, and dances with her is also an opportunity for an action that moms and their children at the storytime could participate in along with the characters The lesson is a great thing for learning about the world around preschoolers about how families might look different from each other but that love makes a family, particularly in the case of adoption
