After searching for adoption storybooks to read to her own adopted children, Katie Cruice Smith decided that there was a need for more books that parents could read at bedtime to connect with their adopted and fostered children.
In Why Did You Choose Me?, Katie Cruice Smith answers that question in a way that young children can understand. Drawing from her own experience as an adoptive mom to three children, Katie uses the questions her own children have asked to help them see there never really was a choice she knew right away that they were hers.
With beautiful illustrations by artist Sarah Strickling Jones, Why Did You Choose Me? lovingly demonstrates the uniqueness that each child brings to a family.

ChatleyAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Simple but profound message in this childrens book explaining the beauty of adoption at a kids level with beautiful illustrations that kids will enjoy. I can imagine this book bringing tears to the eyes of the adoptive mothers as they read this book to their adopted child because of its realistic but heartfelt answers. My favorite quote from the book is I rather enjoy your spunkiness and when your imagination runs wild.
Zooju5 Stars Out Of 5Precious Reassurace for ChildrenAugust 22, 2017ZoojuQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5While every child feels unsure of their place in the world, adopted children have a special need to feel wanted. Smith's book does just that in a sensitive, sweet and amusing way. It reassures the child that their place in their family and their parent's hearts has nothing to do with what they can do, how they look or behave. Love can not be earned. Perfect gift for adoptive parents. Great for classroom shelves! While I received a free copy of this book to preview, that in no way influenced my opinion.
