A Cute Children's Book about Adoption (My Dragon Books – Volume 60)
Join Drew and his dragon Diggory Doo in this uplifting story to understand adoption and what it means to be adopted.
Your children will learn alongside Diggory Doo as he faces relatable issues children have when being adopted and the underlying grief that most adopted kids can't give a name to.
Parents and educators will find this book a great tool to open up a great discussion about adoption, the love of adoptive parents and siblings, the different types of families and how families are made, and much more…
Get this book to explain adoption, and give children the empowering affirmation that they are accepted, needed, included, and loved.
Such a good book to help adopted children understand
Focuses on coping with looking different
Great book but seems written more for adopted children who look different from their adopted family. It focuses on helping children cope with looking different. I imagine it is targeted for racially/ethnically blended families.
As good as any other
I really appreciated the multiple messages within this book. I didn't love the extra emphasis on diggory being different, as not all adopted families look different, but I get why it was that way. You can't hit all the messages in one story. I loved the second half of the book.
great explanation in verse
I love these books to relate different issues for children to understand in an easy way.
Excellent as always!! Loved it!!
Steve Hermann's books are all fantastic. Well-written, relatable, educational and fun. My daughter loves them (as do I). We always make sure to get his books and read them over and over again.
