I’m Brown and My Sister Isn’t


Families are often advised to begin talking about adoption while a child is very young, even before he can understand the words, so that the child will grow up seeing adoption as a normal way for a family to form. Recent years have brought many children’s picture books on adoption, but it’s still a difficult topic to convey to toddlers and preschoolers. A book which speaks very simply about adoption and the diverse families it creates is I’m Brown and My Sister Isn’t, by Robbie O’Shea, who is herself a mother of two adopted children who have different skin colors. It’s a very simple, easy-reader book with one or two sentences in large type on each page. Full-page illustrations on the facing page are brightly colored and simple, but humorous too.
