Children’s Book: “Welcome Home Little Baby” (multiracial)

Here’s another book by Lisa Harper. Based on a poem she wrote immediately after the arrival of their first adopted child, this story is perfect for anyone who has adopted or is going to adopt. I have to admit that I was disappointed with this book. While it is a darling poem, the book is SHORT. I read “I’m the Luckiest Mommy” first (I ordered them together) and this book had half the pages…well, actually it had the same number of pages but half of them were left BLANK. I called the publisher and they said it was not missing any pages. I still didn’t believe it and contacted the illustrator Sandra Martin (who by the way did a wonderful job) and again, she confirmed it wasn’t missing any pages. Disappointing. I guess if I were an adoptive mommy, it wouldn’t matter…I would just be thrilled to have a book about adoption that reflected my family. So, you might want to add this one to your collection.
