A Mother for Choco
Keiko Kasza 1993 16p 7 x 9
In this picture book, Choco is a little bird who lives all alone. He wishes he had a mother, but who could his mother be? While searching for her, Chocho is told over and over that different animals cannot be his mother because they don’t look like him. Eventually, Choco finds a friendly, nurturing mother bear and together they decide to be a family.
Good for adoptive families, interracial families or for teaching children we can choose our families to be outside of traditional, homogeneous structures.
