A Cute Children’s Book to help Kids understand Foster Care and Adoption.
Join Drew and his dragon Diggory Doo on this uplifting story to understand what it means to be a foster child and the many issues, questions, and feelings they have that are directly or indirectly affected by Foster Care.
With the cute and relatable Dragon Diggory Doo going through the same issues children have, this is an essential book to help childrencope with difficult challenges such as changing families, being removed from a home, or how scary things can be, and how to navigate the fears and feelings going into Foster Care.
Educators and parents will find this book a great tool to help kids open up to discuss negative behaviors, as well as understanding and gaining trust for adults involved such as social workers, parents, lawyers, parents, therapists, and more…
Read this book to children to give them the empowering affirmation that no matter how hard and uncertain things can be, they’re loved and the adults involved are lending the helping hands, and what they can do to adjust to the new living associated with Foster Care.
After reading this story to our foster child, it was really apparent he identified with the dragon, as he called this book his favorite book and wanted to dress up as the Foster dragon for the special favorite book character dress up day at school! This book really includes a lot of issues foster kids deal with and encourages kids to talk about what they're feeling. It does however end with adoption, which is fine, but since not all kids in foster care get adopted, readers beware. It does allow for hope for all though.
Be aware the book talks about adoption at the end! Wish I would have known that before reading to my foster children.
Amazing book describing foster care and adoption through foster care
As a foster mom, I love this book. I have a bio son and foster son around 5yrs old, and reading this book to them truly encouraged great conversation that is normally hard to have. I highly recommend this book for foster families with younger kids.(The end talks about adoption FYI)

Not all Foster Dragons are Adopted
It was a fun book but not all foster kids have this happy ending of being adopted.
Great way to introduce the subject of Foster Care.
My son loves this series! He is not a foster child and he doesn't actually know any foster children however it was a great book to explain what that concept is and what that means. When we were done reading it opened up a great dialogue about different types of families and how they may be made up. What a great book! I would definitely recommend it!
