Adoption-Themed Books For Children

Celebrate Adoption members are always looking for great children's books with an adoption theme. There are many out there, most available through any major internet bookseller. It can be difficult, however, to buy online when you don't always know what the content of the book is. Does the book use positive adoption terms? Is it more appropriate for an international or domestic adoption situation? What age group does this book best speak to? Here you'll find member reviews of some of the titles in our members' personal collections. Have a review to add? Send it to us via our Contact page.
