What happens to those Chinese children whose families must give them away because of poverty and the chance of a better life? What happens when they're adopted by Westerners and taken away from their birth mothers? What happens to the birth mothers, for that matter?
Letter of Love from China is just that, a loving letter from a Chinese mother to her beloved child living in America with her new family; a child she loves more than anything in the world yet was compelled to relinquish as an act of deep and total love.
This book is one of those little gems one doesn't encounter often. It is a touching book that will bring tears to your eyes, sad yet beautiful and uplifting. The language is softly lyrical and the evoking illustrations a splash of magical color across the pages.
Letter of Love from China is the 2008 Mom's Choice Award Silver Recipient in the Family Life Children's Category, and Winner Of The 2007 Power Of The Pen Award For Best Children's Book.
