The Red Blanket
by Eliza Thomas, Joe Cepeda
From the publisher: This is a journey about the forming of a family. It is as lyrical as a love letter from a mother to her daughter, as honest as the struggles they encounter, and as comforting as a cozy red blanket. Eliza Thomas went to China in 1994 to adopt her daughter PanPan, who was then 5 months old.

We See the Moon

Grace from China
By Jacqueline Kolosov

"An intriguing novel for older children and adults about a family's adoption from China. But in addition to being a poignant book about an adoption journey, it is also the story of how the protagonist, ninth grader Jess, begins to recover from the unexpected death of her father. The images of China are also memorable and you get a real feeling of what it is like traveling with an eclectic adoption group in China. I heartily recommend this book as an introduction to anyone interested in adoption from China." (Allison Martin)
