Children’s Book About Adoption & Inclusion

This November is National Adoption month, a month set aside to raise awareness about the urgent need for adoptive families for children and youth in foster care.

We would like to share with you a book that can help foster conversations about adoption with your family. A Crocodile in the Family is a touching and heartwarming picture book about adoption, acceptance, and inclusion.

This is a charming children’s story about a family of birds who stumble across a lone egg in the Australian bush. After taking it home to care for the egg themselves, they discover it’s actually a baby crocodile! The bird family raises the baby crocodile as one of their own, and as their community continues to ask questions about their reason why they keep him, the family says the answer is simple. Because he belongs, that’s why! With a story that captures your heart and stunning illustrations, A Crocodile in the Family is the perfect children’s book about what makes a blended family so beautiful.
