A Koala for Katie: An Adoption Story

 

 

A Koala for Katie: An Adoption Story
by Jonathan London,

This disquieting story aims straight at the preoccupations likely to visit adopted children. Katie, who thinks "a lot" about babies, wants to know if she grew in her "real mommy's" belly. "Of course . . . " her mother says. "But I'm your real mommy, too." Later the youngster asks, "Why didn't my first mommy want me?" The adoptive mother assures the girl that her birth mother loved her: "She wanted you to have a better life than she could give you"--a concept that few children Katie's age will be able to grasp. After a visit to the zoo, Katie "adopts" a toy koala from the gift shop and, in an excursion to Katie's imaginary world, the book shows her caring for the koala and protecting it from danger. Jabar's intimate, circular compositions reflect the warmth and love that abound in Katie's family while her light touch with her watercolors gives the book mainstream appeal. However, London (see below) focuses more on anxieties about biological vs. adoptive parents than on the love that motivated Katie's parents to extend their family in the first place. An insightful note to parents, by a social worker with the Northwest Adoption Exchange, precedes the story. Ages 3-6.

Here's another of our son's adoption favorites. Like Katie, he wondered where babies come from, and why he came to his parents differently than most. He identifies strongly with Katie, whose trip to the zoo let him, early on, explore the adoption theme. He pulled this book from those I intended to review, explaiming, "OOOOOOO! I love this book!"

The zoo will find a new mother for a baby koala that suddenly lost its own. Katie's parents compare this to the way that an adoption agency found parents for her when her birth parents could not care for her. Katie's parents buy her a stuffed koala, which she adopts to act out her concerns.

This is simply a great book for any child who was adopted, as well as for his siblings. Alyssa A. Lappen
