What an excellent book about chosen family, parenting, adoption and relationships.

The beginning was confusing because there are a lot of characters, but once I was clear on which parents went with which children I fell in love with this family.

It‘s about 4 siblings adopted by 3 parent sets, and the way the adoptive and birth parents structure their lives so that the kids keep their sibling relationships. Amazing book. 👍👍

MicheleinPhilly Nice! I just bought this over the weekend because I loved The Weird Sisters. 2mo
Soubhiville @MicheleinPhilly that‘s the main reason I picked it up too 🙂📚❤️. 2mo

Ducks Away! | Mem Fox

Pickpick

I mean, Mem Fox is so reliably good with her picture books. This was a simple story of ducklings falling/jumping into a River from the bridge. No one is hurt, but mom gets flustered until she joins them. Nice rhythm, supports learning numbers and subtraction.

We‘re reading a book about losing and finding mummy to ease grandbaby‘s separation anxiety.

Talk to My Back | Murasaki Yamada

Pickpick

I resonated deeply with this as a wife/mother. Yamada focused on realism and according to the afterword, wasn‘t one to romanticize married life. I‘m not as cynical but I respect what she did here and how she felt about it. There were plenty of light-hearted/funny moments in between the serious ones. Ultimately, the focus is on women finding their own identities outside of their home/family. Which seems to transcend time and is personally relevant.

Currently reading the afterword essay by the translator. I love learning about artists and their life/work. But I‘m getting a little irritated with the translator who wrote this essay. Speaking on the author‘s abusive 1st husband, he seems to lack understanding/compassion as to why the author felt the way she did about the patriarchy and marriage. Personally, I respect the author even more but can‘t say the same for the translator.
