Popular author-illustrator Parr illustrates the rewards of family ties in this heartfelt, supportive book geared toward adopted children and their parents. In each double-page spread, Parr completes the phrase "We belong together because . . ." with poignant explanations that touch upon basic, tangible needs ("You needed a home . . . and I had one to share") as well as emotional ones: "You needed someone to say 'I love you' . . . and we had love to give. Now we all have someone to kiss goodnight." As in Parr's The Family Book (2003), cheerful, friendly artwork, with thickly outlined forms and characters and a bold rainbow palette, inclusively depicts an array of children and familiesincluding one with a single parent and one with two dadsand emphasizes the rewards of adoption for adults and children alike. Apart from the subtitle, the text never uses the word adoption nor refers to the adoption process, keeping the focus squarely on the universal joys of sharing hearth and heart. Rosenfeld, Shelle
Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein...Well I've found another to add to the list: Todd Parr. * Kansas CITY Star *See all Product description

I like the book because the author used practical reasons to explain why the adoption took place. Each reason has three components: the children's needs (physical, psychological, intellectual), what the parents offer, and the mutual benefits.
My copy of the book is showing wear from repeated use. It is one of the few books I will buy again when it wears out.
