The Little Book of Adoption
Product Code TLBOA0121
Have you ever wondered what goes on in the adoptees world?
Here's a candid look into the world of the adopted person through the eyes of adoptees
The Little Book of Adoption takes the reader through the daily life of an adoptee. Oni is short for Ontal. Oni is a gender neutral little person who will touch your heart. The meaning of Ontal is "real" as opposed to perceived. Adoptee challenges are real, not perceived, as you discover through these pages. We invite you on the journey into the reality of adoption with Oni.
Oni represents adoptee challenges and is perfect for children who are adopted and find themselves trying to understand their experiences.
Oni also is there to reflect the struggles of older adoptees by way of normalising their experiences so they feel more connected.
Oni can help guide non adoptees into the world of an adopted person so they too can better understand the challenges.
Oni is really for everyone and this little guy is bursting to be your friend!
"...it is both educational to the non-adoptee whilst being validating to the adopted."
"Oni is very appealing and displays a healthy curiosity, which is used to educate the reader."
