Little Chick and Mommy Cat by Marta Zafrilla illustrated by Nora Hillb
"Little Chick and Mommy Cat is a story that explores diversity in a fun way, raising awareness of how every child is entitled to a family based on a love that goes beyond the color of one's skin or origin to embrace differences." (back cover of book)
I love the approach Marta Zafrilla used when broaching this topic. What a beautiful way to briefly mention a birth mother who knew she couldn't take care of her baby and an adoptive mother who was unable to have a baby of her own. This book is adorable and great for a family story time for 4-6 year-olds.
