I like the overall message. I see it helping families explain adoption to their children. I think it might be too wordy for toddlers.
And I agree, it's geared towards those who were adopted as babies. One thing that "bothered" me is the author's word choice for something that was nagging at him, he questioned their race pretty much and why they look different which is natural and fine.. It made me cringe.

This book nearly had me in tears it was so sweet. It even addresses why the little bear doesn't look like his mom. A book meant for young children but also a reassuring book for them. It will definitely be an addition to our home library. First read October 20, Apr 18, Laura Carby rated it it was amazing Shelves: family , friendship , picture-book.
