Beck Valley Books reviews “We’re Not All the Same, But We’re Family”

Sharon Martin, of Beck Valley Books writes:

We’re All Not the Same, But We’re Still Family: An Adoption and Birth Family Story is an excellent story which depicts the story of Deshaun and how he has a lot of questions about being adopted. Why was he given up for adoption? Who are his real parents? How will he cope when he meets or locate his real parents?

With the support of his adopted parents Deshaun goes on a discovery to find his real dad and once they find him it tells the story of how the relationship is rebuilt, the fears Deshaun has and the positive reassurance he receives from his adopted parents.

The drawings and easy to read narrative explains what every adopted person will feel at some point in their life in searching for their true identity. The story ends on a high note with Deshaun not only finding his dad but also finds he has an extended family who readily accept him. 

A well written book for a personal point of view which will help others understand adoption and the search to find out about their heritage

Kate Paris Battaglia, a resilient high school student, has taken advantage of COVID-imposed solitude to author her first book: 101 Tips for Surviving in a Pandemic: A Generation Z Guidebook. Born near 2000, Kate allows readers to travel into the minds of a generation accustomed to the technology of the internet. However, she surprisingly does not dwell on social media to cure all ills that COVID-19 and its variants have inflicted upon the "zoomers" of Gen Z. This astute young author:

  • offers advice on finding creative outlets in confined spaces.
  • suggests sharing resources and affection with both neighbor and stranger.
  • provides hope to those who have lost it in the melee of COVID variants, uncertain vaccines and treatments, and a changing educational and work landscape.
  • gives older generations (as baby boomers) a new vocabulary - like vlog!

Her survival tips are as simple as planting flowers and as complex as forgiveness. Kate Battaglia truly gives us a COVID guidebook for all ages!

"As a special education teacher and mother, I have labored to engage the young during periods of isolation (and remote learning) during the COVID -19 pandemic. Kate Battaglia has written the book I didn't know I needed, with tips that are useful and intuitive. She gives readers a window into the world of Generation Z, and new vocabulary to use both in teaching and parenting!" - Kelly B. Darmofal, author of 101 Tips for Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injury

"I have been running online courses on positive psychology to help people cope with climate and COVID anxiety. I found many of my recommendations among the tips in this delightful little book, adapted to the needs and preferences of today's young people. As a Professional Grandfather, I am delighted to adopt Kate as a granddaughter, and can see a great future ahead of her. This list of 101 Tips is a coping aid, but it is also amusing and entertaining. Regardless of your age, you can't do much better than to use it as a starting point for improving your attitude to life, regardless of your circumstances." - Bob Rich, PhD, author of From Depression to Contentment: A Self-Therapy Guide

"The isolation experienced by GEN Z due this pandemic is worrisome to all educators across the world. Kate's tips encourage GEN Z to take risks, challenge their minds and emotions, all while daring to try something new to support their social emotional well being and growth!" - Maria J. Davis, M.Ed., Barbieri Elementary School Principal, Massachusetts
