Wonderful little book for adopted children. I can't wait to share this my little girl!
A simple, moving story told from a woman's point of view about adopting a baby from China. This is a board book.

With I LOVE YOU LIKE CRAZY CAKES, author Rose Lewis brings to lifer her true story of adopting a baby from China. What begins as a letter to Chinese officials ends with bringing home a baby girl, to the delight of her new mother and extended family.
Jane Dyer's illustrations are soft and dreamy, and perfectly compliment the story of Rose and her daughter, Alexandra Mae-Ming Lewis. From that first time of holding her new daughter, to the first night alone back in America, the feelings of love and devotion are evident on every page.
Although this is a book sure to appeal to parents who have adopted children from other countries, specifically China, it's a great story for any child, adopted or not. In fact, my daughter was especially enamored by the book, since it was her first introduction as to what adoption truly means.
Great as a bedtime or any time story, it's no wonder that I LOVE YOU LIKE CRAZY CAKES is well on its way to becoming a children's classic.
It was okay, cute drawings and title, but a single mom is implied, not a traditional family.
