Porcupette Finds A Family by Vanita Oelschlager, much like the last book of hers that I reviewed, is a book with a message.
This time the tough issue of adoption and trying to fit into a new family while feeling like an outsider and fearing abandonment is tackled.
Again the illustrations are by Mike Blanc. They are muted drawings surrounded in white. Simple and muted the illustrations are easy to look at and help tell the story.
The story itself is told by a baby porcupine whose mother leaves one day and doesn’t come back. The porcupette finds a Mother bear and its cub and takes up with them.
It is a lovely story. I couldn’t test this one out on my daughter because she only likes rhyming books but I’m sure most kids would love it.
You can buy Porcupette Finds A Family on Amazon or I assume other book sellers as well.
