This book would be for older children with it s detailed and in depth look at adoption and it s longer text blocks The story is mostly written from the perspective of the birth mother and how she comes to decide to place her baby bird with an adoptive family It is quite gut wrenching but that is the truth about adoption It may be the best choice but it doesn t make it the easy choice The last couple of pages are written from the point of view of the bird who has been adopted It isn t quite as detailed as the birth mother s story but it does highlight some common emotions and experiences of an adoptee. Mother Bird Is Looking After Her Baby Bird In The Forest, When A Huge Storm Scatters Her Nest Try As She Might, She Just Can T Give Him The Protection He Needs She Faces A Choice Continue To Struggle On Her Own, Or Give Her Precious Baby Bird To Another Family Who Can Care For Him In Their Strong, Secure NestIn This Classic Adoption Picture Book For Children, Common Issues In Adoption Are Addressed From The Enduring Force Of A Birth Parent S Love And Contact Post Adoption To The Importance Of Nurturing An Adopted Child In His Or Her New Environment It Is A Timeless And Enduring Tale Of Sacrifice, Wisdom And LoveThis Book Is Ideal For Reading Aloud With Adopted Children Aged And Their Siblings, Whether At Home Or In School A really sweet story with real content embedded in its pages One of the better books addressing adoption The mother bird doesn t want to give up her baby bird and does everything she can do keep him I wish the father bird wasn t absent as that reinforces the stereotype that birth mothers are abandoned rather than present when the decision to place via adoption is made.
