A Mother for Choco Kindle Edition
Choco wishes he had a mother, but who could she be? He sets off to find her, asking all kinds of animals, but he doesn't meet anyone who looks just like him. He doesn't even think of asking Mrs. Bear if she's his mother-but then she starts to do just the things a mommy might do. And when she brings him home, he meets her other children-a piglet, a hippo, and an alligator-and learns that families can come in all shapes and sizes and still fit together.
Keiko Kasza's twist on the "Are you my mother?" theme has become one of the most highly recommended stories about adoption for children.

Great story about adoption where little Chocco starts by looking for his mum and ends up being accepted into a family where all the children are a different animal to the mum. It’s a very sweet and heart warming story. My favourite of all the children books I’ve read so far.
Would highly recommend and probably buy as gifts for friends.
Delightful illustrations with a happy ending, we got this as we're adopting and wanted our children to feel like any other kid.
However, it hits right in the feels and I end up a mess reading it. Fabulous.
Ultimately it's a simple, if slightly oblique story of adoption. The real question is whether your child will like the story. I can only say that my daughter loves the story of Choco. It was the first book my daughter wanted me to read to her at night and, it was at her insistence that I then read it to her every night for four months. For my daughter the regular repetition of Choco was probably comforting, I am not sure I can echo her sentiment.
Given my daughter's view, I am a strong advocate of the book. However I am delighted that in the last three weeks my daughter has finally stoppped asking for me to read Choco at bedtime and is wanting to hear new stories.
