Books on Adoption for Young Children: Looking at Language.
Schimmel, Nancy; Love, Susan
School Library Journal, v43 n7 p32-33 Jul 1997
Books can inform, reassure, and give young children the vocabulary to talk about adoption. This article presents and examines the language used to talk about adoption in eleven current children's books. Discusses surrogacy, adoption, "natural" parents, grief, "chosen-baby" stories, age at adoption, international adoption, foster children, and open relationships between adoptive families and birth parents.
