About the Author:

Darlene Friedman, an award-winning writer and editor, works for an international women's organization in Philadelphia. She lives with her husband, Roger; their daughter, Eden; and their dog ("The Dobo") in Springfield, Pennsylvania. This is her first book for children.



Roger Roth is the award-winning author and illustrator of The Sign Painter's Dream and Fishing for Methuselah. He has illustrated dozens of children's books, including The American Story: 100 True Tales from American History by Jennifer Armstrong and the Unsolved Mystery from History books by Jane Yolen and Heidi Elisabet Yolen Stemple. This is the first of what he hopes will be many collaborations with his wife, Darlene.

From Booklist:

It is Cassidy-Li’s turn to be her kindergarten class’ “star of the week,” so she begins her autobiographical poster with a photograph taken in China at the time of her adoption. Other snapshots introduce her American family, friends, and favorite activities; but Cassidy-Li ruefully realizes she does not have a photograph of her birth family: “I think about my birth parents a lot. Sometimes I miss them.” Her questions and longings go into a picture she draws for her poster. Realistic illustrations portray a contemporary family bearing a strong resemblance to that of the author, the illustrator, and their daughter in the book-flap photo. The pictures add character and a light touch to a story, which, while upbeat, deals forthrightly with the uncertainties of adoptees. Cassidy-Li’s thoughts and questions about her birth family will resonate with adopted children and serve as a springboard for discussion in homes and classrooms. Preschool-Grade 3. --Linda Perkins
