Review by Allison Martin

"My mom is the best mom in the world.. But she wasn't always my mom. We love to tell the story of how we became a family.." Thus begins The Best Single Mom in the World : How I Was Adopted, a charming adoption story for young children. In this colorful children's book, a single adoptive mother and her young daughter take turns sharing their adoption story at bedtime. Their story starts with the mom's desire for a child to share her life and ends with the moment of placement and their present life together. Throughout the book a warm feeling of belonging is emphasized.

This encouraging and sympathetic book is designed for children of toddler age to early elementary school age adopted by single mothers. However, since only few pages mention single parenting, this warm hearted approach is likely to be enjoyed by children of more traditional families as well.

Mary Zisk is also an accomplished artist and illustrated the book herself. Her arcrylic-like paintings are almost tropical, with deep colors with many patterns. Each page contains a sentence or two with illustrations to go with the story. The little girl has black hair while the mother has curly brown hair, making this book applicable to a wide audience.

Mary Zisk brings up a number of issues related to adoption, but her spare text leaves plenty of room for imagination and discussion. While you may wish to purchase other books for more in-depth discussion of adoption, this book is a positive way to introduce the idea of adoption and family to young children. All children need acceptance and reassurance at this early age, and this is a nice resource to help you share this quality time.

"Finally you were in my arms. You were the most beautiful baby in the world! I hugged you and kissed you I called you my little snuggle bunny and promised to take care of you forever." "And home we came!" I always say, finishing the story."
