    This is a very sweet book about the blessing of adoption. Great gift for children who have been adopted. Also great read for any child to help them better understand adoption.

    This and some other items were a baptism gift. I was thrilled with this sweet little book, as the illustrations are adorable and the sentiment is so loving. Would recommend.

    I am inclined to call A Blessing from Above a fairy-tale about adoption as the story begins with the words once upon a time... In the story, Momma-Roo, a kangaroo, has an empty pouch. She sees other animals in the forest with their babies and she wants one, too. One day, as she is sitting under a tree, a baby bird falls into her pouch. The mama bird, who has just lost her chick, knew her nest was not big enough for all her chicks... and it made her happy to see her baby blue-bird in such a warm, cuddly place. Momma-Roo adopts the bird as her own and calls it Little One. The story ends with these words:"Now every night before they fall asleep, Momma-Roo and Little One thank God for all their blessings...but especially for each other."The story references two Bible verses: Children are a gift from God; they are His reward. (Psalm 127:3); and In love he destined us for adoption to himself...(Ephesians 1:5).The water-color illustrations are colorful and playful, lending a light-hearted air to the story.What I Like: The story is short and simple, making it good for young children. What I Dislike: I dont like Christian childrens stories that begin with the words Once upon a time. That's the way you begin a fairy tale, not a Christian-based story. And the theme, adoption, isnt handled very realistically in terms of a kangaroo adopting a baby bird. This might be a bit confusing for children, leading to more questions than answers for children trying to understand what adoption means. I think the story would have been stronger if the mama kangaroo had adopted a baby kangaroo. Overall Rating: Good. I give the story a rating of Good as it might appeal to some audiences.

    A wonderful book for little ones. A sweet story about a kangaroo momma who longs for a baby in her pouch. This book has become one of my son's and my favorites. A must have if God has blessed you with children of another race than your own.
