Reviews - What do customers think about Kazakhstan: Coming of Age?
Great book for learning about Kaz! Jul 8, 2007
My family is also adopting from Kaz-and we purchased this book as a coffee table book and we have all enjoyed reading it. I was just reading another book that recommended getting yourself aquainted with your child's birth country (when adopting internationally)and recommended getting a coffee table book and actually opening it! We have opened it and enjoy looking at the pictures and I am sure as soon as "Baby Kaz" is old enough, she/he will enjoy looking at it too.
Great for Adoptive Parents Jan 13, 2006
My husband and I are traveling to adopt a child or maybe two from Kazakhstan. I purchased this book as a Christmas present for my husband. We really enjoy reading it together.
There are fabulous pictures, maps and diagrams and it really gives you a quick lesson on the history. My nephews also love looking at the pictures and learning about the country from which their cousins come from. I would definately recommend this book to all of those traveling to Kazakhstan to adopt. I am sure many others would like it, too.
