Sweet Moon Baby Signed book as the next Kay Bratt Giveaway!

Written by Kay on . Posted in Contests and Give-A-Ways

Sometimes I find books that just speak to my heart and that is just what happened with Sweet Moon Baby. The book, written by Karen Henry Clark and illustrated by Patrice Barton, is just one of the most beautifully done adoption tales I have seen. I cannot say enough about the illustration and the story!

Amazon Blurb: A lyrical fantasy about a Chinese infant’s magical trip to her adoptive parents. Her birth parents declare her “perfect,” but are unable to provide for her. Thus they place her in a basket and set her adrift: “We must trust the moon. Only good things will happen to our daughter.” Helped by a variety of animals as well as a beneficent-looking moon, the baby girl floats down the “winding river” to her adoptive parents, who have been preparing for her arrival by planting vegetables and trees, building a new bedroom, and buying books. Their hands are shown parting reeds to reveal her smiling up at them from her basket. The vibrant watercolors capture her journey and her delight in her new family and home. Although most youngsters will understand that the journey on the river is a fantasy, adults should be prepared for questions from literal-minded children who may wonder why a baby had to make a solitary voyage and depend on the kindness of wild animals in order to reach her destination.

You can win a signed hardcover copy of this book to be in your hands by Mother’s Day. With just a few Clicks, you are in. Become a fan by Liking both the Sweet Moon Baby and the Kay Bratt Facebook fan pages. Then come back and comment here that you have “liked” both pages. The drawing will be in two weeks, Saturday, April 28.

    Just liked both pages and linked to the Amazon page fromy FB wall. I also just finished Chasing China. Wow. We have 2 daughters from China. The second was almost 4 when we met her. Kay, my wife Allison met you at a conf at Christ Community Church in Franklin, TN. Then we read Silent Tears and shed some tears. She has been anxiously waiting for me to finish Chasing China so we can discuss. Now we can! Thank you for sharing your experiences with us readers. -Chris
