Books for our Babe

I’ve started a sweet little collection basket of my favorite books that are full of diversity, love through adoption, and Africa for our baby…


In our basket…

I Wished for You…an adoption story by Marianne Richmond
On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman
Whoever You Are by Mem Fox (great cross-cultural awareness)
The Lion that Finally Roared by Obi Chidebellu-eze*
Animals of Africa - Planet Earth*
A Mother for Choco by Keido Kasza*
Please Baby Please by Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee*
Pancakes with Chocolate Syrup by Rebekah Barlow Rounce*
The Colors of Us by Karen Katz*
God Found Us You by Laura J. Bryant
I Don’t Have Your Eyes by Carrie Kitze

If you know of a children’s book that is just too sweet not to share and a must have—please email me! I’m always looking for books to add to all of my children’s library to remind them HOW much they are loved! I know our baby throughout the years will have many questions, and I want to always have lots of books on hand that makes him feel like he knows his heritage and that it is also a part of him.

*Books specific for transracial and/or Africa adoptions
