Reviews - What do customers think about A Blessing from Above (Little Golden Book)?
My most favorite book about adoption Jan 11, 2007
It's still hard to read this book without tears of joy about our adoption. This book tells the sweetest story ever about how much a mother wanted a baby. I hope my daughters will see how much I love them as we share this wonderful story.
Adoption books Jan 3, 2007
This book was very good. It took a somewhat vague approach to adoption, but the message was that our children are ours and loved no matter how they come to us. It was great for small children, the intended audience.
Sweetest and most accurate children's book on adoption Aug 11, 2006
This book is so perfect for the young child! Our granddaughter, who joined our family through adoption three years ago, loves it. You can tell that the authors have been personally touched by adoption because there is sensitivity and honoring of all those in the adoption triad. It flows so easily and makes complex adoption issues simple for the tender heart of a child.
A Blessing from Above Feb 28, 2006
We are adopting and this book is a wonderful story to read about love and longing for a child. It also has a Christian touch and that is wonderful, too. I highly recommend this book.
Great BOOK Feb 2, 2006
Enjoyed this book a lot. It expressed how the "new" mom feels and how she felt sad before and how her prayers were answered. I enjoyed how it didn't say things like "gave up" or "couldn't take care of or keep" which made me happy as an adoptive parent. I also like how it showed that the biological mother (ie bird) was happy to see her baby with Mamma-Roo. The end was absolutely beautiful w/it thanking God for all their blessings.
