Multicultural Children's Book Day: The Road to Paris and ABC, Adoption & Me

January 27, 2014

Road to Paris     Today is multicultural Children's Book Day!  Adoptive families have a vested interest in expanding the concept of family life      beyond the stereotypical picture. With increased knowledge comes understanding and this benefits all of us. Today we are reviewing  

The Road to Paris by Nikki Grimes. ( a Coretta Scott King Award Honor Book ) middle-school

Paris is a person, not a place.  This is the story of her journey as a frightened eight year old girl placed into foster care.  Protective of her mischievous little brother, she is resilient and resourceful.  This book follows Paris and her younger brother through many placements. After the children are separated, Paris struggles to stay connected.  She is finally comfortable in a supportive foster home.  Then her final challenge comes―rejoining her mother and brother and discovering what it means to be family.
