'I don't Have Your Eyes'

A couple of months ago I mentioned that I had a book to review.  I can't remember what happened, but something came up we became parents again, went through a heart surgery, and another hospital stay and I didn't get around to it right away.  So here is a very late book review.
I was sent a free copy of the book, I Don't Have Your Eyes by Carrie Kitze.  The opinions I have are mine, and I am in no way being compensated for reviewing this book.

Each page starts with a statement such as, 'I don't have your.....but I have your way of...'  I appreciate this book because our family works hard to talk about the things that are different (Abigail's eyes are brown, like her tummy mommy, and Mama's are blue) and the things that are the same (Abigail loves to encourage people just like Mama).  The pictures have lots of diversity, and Abigail has asked to read this book over and over again. 
Overall I would recommend the book to other interracial families (adoption, or otherwise) The book can be purchased by clicking on the link above, or by going to http://www.amazon.com/.  It would be a great addition to your child's library.
