When You Were Born in Vietnam by Therese
Bartlett (ages 6-teens)- Photo essay.
Through Moon and Stars and Night Skies
by Ann Turner- "Let me tell the story this time, Momma," says a 4-5
year old Asian boy. "Once I was a picture you held in your hand,"
he begins, and tells how he "flew through night and moon and stars"
to his new home. He was frightened on the plane ride but held tight
to the picture of his new family. When he arrived, his parents
welcomed him at the airport with open arms. Although this book was
more a reflection of older style international adoptions where the
child was escorted rather than the parents traveling to bring the
child home, it is still a sweet tale and was one of my
family’s favorites. The country is not specified, but looks
east Asian and is probably Vietnam.
