A Mother for Choco Book Review:

Family is about love no matter how different parents and children may be, adopted or not. Choco wishes he had a mother, but who could she be? He sets off to find her, asking all kinds of animals, but he doesn't meet anyone who looks just like him. He doesn't even think of asking Mrs. Bear if she's his mother-but then she starts to do just the things a mommy might do. And when she brings him home, he meets her other children-a piglet, a hippo, and an alligator-and learns that families can come in all shapes and sizes and still fit together. Keiko Kasza's twist on the "Are you my mother?" theme has become one of the most highly recommended stories about adoption for children.

My Lucky Day Book Review:

An award-winning story time favorite with a hilarious twist at the end. When a delicious-looking piglet knocks on Mr. Fox's door, the fox can hardly believe his good luck. It's not every day that dinner just shows up on your doorstep. It must be his lucky day! But as the piglet is quick to point out, shouldn't the fox give him a bath first? And wouldn't it be best to fatten him up a little, and give him a massage so he'll make for a nice tender roast? Preparing this feast is a lot of work, but the fox is sure it will be worth it. After all, it's his lucky day. Or is it? In a funny trickster tale of her own, Kasza keeps readers guessing until the surprise ending when they'll realize it was piglet's lucky day all along.

With a heartwarming story and tender illustrations, Jeanette Bradley's debut picture book Love, Mama is perfect for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, and any day when a child needs a reminder of the strength of a mother's love. When Mama leaves her young penguin Kipling, he knows she'll return home soon—yet he still can't help but miss her.

But then Kipling receives a special delivery from Mama, including a note that reads: My love for you stretches across the wide ocean, through day and night, from earth to sky and back again. And Kipling knows that no matter where Mama is, he is loved. Soon, Mama comes home, and Kipling ends the day where he belongs—right in her arms.

Not Norman Book Review:

"A sweet story that could be used as a springboard to discussion of the pitfalls of making snap judgments about pets — or people." — School Library Journal Norman the goldfish isn’t what this little boy had in mind. He wanted a different kind of pet — one that could run and catch, or chase string and climb trees, a soft furry pet to sleep on his bed at night. Definitely not Norman. But when he tries to trade Norman for a "good pet," things don’t go as he planned. Could it be that Norman is a better pet than he thought? With wry humor and lighthearted affection, author Kelly Bennett and illustrator Noah Z. Jones tell an unexpected — and positively fishy — tale about finding the good in something you didn’t know you wanted.

And Stella Turns a Mom Book Review:

And Stella Turns a Mom is a journey from the mundane corporate scenario to the Cosmic Truth revealed to open the human psychological perception—especially the female perception—towards the self, sexuality, motherhood and the cosmic responsibilities and realization of an individual in everyday life and work. It is the unfolding of a male psyche towards discovering the female psyche and the social as well cosmic value of humanity and realization of the soul and energy-level balance of all the cosmic beings aligned to the self-area of defining the ‘me’ sector of possession. The sense of self as a resource in the individualistic, social and cosmic quest of self-discoveries is covered in a postmodernist and, at times, sub-verse language. The experimental use of language and alternative cultural perception of observing human relation linked and juxtaposed to social and soul-level evolution is focused upon in the work. Stella, the symbol of the female heart-mind-body and the humanity of motherhood defined in the individual responsibilities of creating and holding a state of stability from a spiritual viewpoint, expressed in the language of consciousness theories, in the guise of love for a woman and mother, from a man's point of view.

A Mom For Umande Book Review:

The heart-tugging true story of how a baby gorilla found love in the arms of a surrogate mom When Umande was born, his mother didn’t know how to take care of him. So, he was hand-reared by keepers at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. For eight months, the keepers crawled on the ground with him to show him how to walk; coughed in his face to teach him discipline; and gave him happy gorilla grumbles to encourage him. But for Umande, something was still missing. Luckily, a thousand miles away at the Columbus Zoo, a mom was waiting just for him. This touching true story about finding a family will resonate with animal lovers and adoptive families alike. Share this book with fans of Owen & Mzee, Tarra & Bella, and Knut.
