Putnam Juvenile (September 29, 2003) 32 pages
My little boy has been getting books in the mail from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library for about a year now. I don't know how he ended up getting them, but I'm very grateful for the sweet person that signed him up for the program! He has been running a fever the past couple of days, and not feeling well at all, so it was a wonderful little surprise for him to get a new book in the mail today! :)
I normally don't review these books, but the one he got today is so cute, I decided I need to start throwing out some kid book ideas, too.
A Mother for Choco is a perfect book for an adoption family or foster care family. (Not that it isn't cute for all the other families, too)! The one we have is a board book, but I think you can get it paper-paged, also. The pictures are adorable! This book teaches the lesson that it doesn't matter what you look like, you can still be a family and love each other. It's a short story, so it's more of a baby-preschool book.
