We are adopting... Ye hA! We are wanting to gather picture books for a collection. Which ones are "must haves"? Which ones are "lame"? We have "Shaoey and Dot" by Steven Curtis Chapman but that's it. What do you recommend? THANKS!

Congratulations on adopting!

We came across this book at the library and my daughter loved it

I was going to recommend A Mother for Choco.  It is a really cute story that my son had when he was little (not adopted, but he loved it).  I posted it here and it was snapped up quickly.
