I really enoy this book, and my daughter calls it "our special book." It talks about how even though an adopted child doesn't look like their aodoptive parent, their similarities on the inside are what matters. My daughter is at the age (2 years old) where she like to point out the hands, feet, eyes, etc. mentioned in the book, so she doesn't get bored before it's over. I think the book is very sweet, and I usually get a little teary before it's over!
