Asia Press, a small press publisher of children's books, today announced that it's celebrating the 12th year of its popular, "must-have" children's book, "Rosie's Family; An adoption story," and is offering a 10 percent discount for orders placed over the next 30-days, through its web site, http://www.adoptionsource.ca. This insightful and creatively illustrated children's book provides an essential guide for adoptive parents to discuss adoption with their children. Thought provoking and charming, Rosie's Family has received rave reviews from parents, teachers, adoption agencies and a wide range of leading media.
"We address the inherent issues related to all adoptive families, and in particular, interracial and multi-cultural adoption, in an easy-to-read format," said Lori Rosove, Author of Rosie's Family and founder of The Adoption Source. "We've provided humorous and colorfully animated illustrations to attract children to the often difficult subject matter of adoption."
Rosie's Family is ideal for children 4-8 years old, but is also appropriate for older children. It teaches the importance of embracing diversity and tolerance of differences. The book addresses common adoption questions such as, "Why do I look different? Where did I come from? What were my birth parents like? Do I belong in my family?" Rosie's Family makes it easy for parents to tackle these questions with their children, which, if remain unanswered, may have a serious effect on children's self-esteem development. Rosie's Family is also relevant for non-adopted children as the book encourages acceptance of differences, which can lead to prevention of bullying.
A number of leaders in the adoption field have provided high praise for Rosie's Family. "Savvy Mommy," Victoria Pericon, recommended Rosie's Family when she appeared on New York City's local television affiliate, WCBSTV, to review children's adoption books.
