Great Reads: Adoption Books for Kids

I love kids books! Reading books about adoption to my children will be one way I help them understand their story and normalize adoption. I have been working hard (really hard) at compiling a list of adoption books for kids on Pinterest. I started with one Pinterest board with adoption books for kids. But my list ended up so long - I had to start categorizing it! So now I have 10 (yes, your read that correctly 10!) Pinterest boards of adoption books for kids! I thought you might be interested in adoption books for kids too, so I am sharing here!

Know someone who is adopting? One of these books might just be the perfect gift!

Board 1: Adoption Books for Kids

This board is aimed at younger children and contains mostly picture books and fiction stories, but a few appropriate nonfiction/informational books too! A few of my favorites on this Pinterest board are:

Board 2: Adoption Books for School Age Kids and Teens

This board contains 23 pins. Some books are fiction chapter books others are nonfiction/informational books. I like:


Board 3: Adoption Books for Older Child Adoption

  1. Awesome! I am such a children's literature nut, and this is a great list! I've been trying to collect a few adoption books here and there as well, but your pin boards blow my little list out of the water! Thanks for your research, Katie!
