Description

A young child asks his mother to tell the story of where he came from. -I might tell how you came from a land far away in a hot air balloon. The basket slowly drifted down like a feather into our yard. I dropped the firewood I was carrying and ran to you. 'You're home now, ' I said.- Or maybe it was a lark--and not a stork--that brought the child to the mother. Or perhaps he was rescued from a dragon Each lyrical and fantastic tale contains a small kernel of truth that pieces together the baby's journey across a wide ocean into his new mother's arms. Beautifully illustrated by Jessica Lanan, The Story I'll Tell is a gentle and moving story of adoption and parental love that is sure to touch the hearts of readers everywhere, no matter how they came to be a family.
