A Mother for Choco: 10/13/06
Sean continues to borrow books from school, including A Mother for Choco. I really enjoyed reading this story to Sean and it gave us the opportunity to talk about something we've never discussed before: adoption. Choco, the adorable little bird on the cover doesn't have a mother an decides to go find one. He asks a variety of animal mothers and they all turn him down for one reason or another until he meets a mother bear. She welcomes him into her life with open arms (in the form of a bear hug, of course).
When Sean saw the mother bear's family which includes a variety of animals (a pig, an alligator and something else), he started asking lots of important questions. He wanted to know why the bear mother would want all these animals when they weren't like her. He wanted to know why she wanted Choco. It gave me the chance to explain adoption and other types of families.
