In honor of National Adoption Month (which is almost over--good grief, November went by too fast) a new book for children is hitting the shelves: Adopted Ed by Darren Maddern, a first time author. In rhyming prose, Adopted Ed tells the story of little Ed who is adopted as a baby. As he grows, he learns that he is adopted and his parents give him the strength and guidance that he needs to overcome teasing bullies. His parents remind him that adoption is an act of love.
Maddern's book Adopted Ed would make a great book for any child who is adopted and for any child to understand adoption. My children, who aren't adopted, really enjoyed it. They have friends who are adopted and I hope that this book will help them understand the blessing and joy of being adopted.
Adopted Ed is simple, sweet and humorous as well as emotional with charming illustrations. It's well done.
I received a copy of Adopted Ed from One2One Network in exchange for my honest opinion. I have a chance to win prizes but not additional compensation has been received.
