Oliver, A Story About AdoptionOliver, A Story About Adoption by Lois Wickstrom
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oliver I think would be a great book to use as a teaching tool for younger children with anger issues or that have been adopted. It’s entertaining and has well done illustrations but it shows children that it’s okay to be upset or mad but through Oliver’s actions when he’s feeling that way shows that you can work through those feelings and emotions and come out better on the other side of them. I also like how the author portrayed adoption and let children know that even children living with their birth parents still often dream that they were adopted too. They imagine they would live much more exciting lives than the current maddeningly, mundane situation that they are currently experiencing. A child’s imagination is a wild and wonderful thing that plots adventures and creates magic in the normal everyday. I enjoyed this book very much and I would definitely recommend it.
