Star of the Week A Story of Love Adoption and Brownies with SprinklesIt's the Week A Story Kindle Cassidy Li's the Week PDFEPUB #193 turn to be Star of the Week at school So she's making brownies and collecting photos for her poster She has pictures of all the important people in her l The author of this book wrote this story to model off her own life showing how she and her husband adopted a baby girl from China The story is written from the perspective of Cassidy Li a six year old who is preparing to do a presentation about herself for school As Cassidy Li makes a poster board with pictures of her life so far we are introduced to her family and friends I will say that I was put off that all of the Caucasian characters were obviously very different and uniue but when the illustrator drew pictures of the Chinese children they all looked exactly the same Cassidy Li even looks like a twin with her best friend and her 'cousins' other children adopted from the same orphanage However I do like the aspect that Cassidy Li thinks about her birth parents and how her adoptive parents are very honest and open about talking about the birth parents It also shows her anxiety of sharing the poster and getting unwanted uestions from classmates I was disappointed that there weren't any uestions from her classmates Young children are curious and I don't think it it totally true to real life that they didn't ask Cassidy Li anything about her adoption I useful story for grades K 2 when discussing adoption
