First line: The baby heard a voice.

Why you should read this book: Sweet little semi-magical (but apparently based on real life) tale about adoption, which begins in utero, in China, travels to America, and then gets back to China. The dream-like illustrations are gorgeous, sumptuous, rich, layered, and remarkable. I didn't read this one to the kids because I knew it would make me cry.

Why you shouldn't read this book: It will probably make you cry.
