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

Jenny, a young girl undergoing treatment for cancer, discovers that her best friend, Dolly, also has cancer. Dolly is the family's dog, who has always been at Jenny's side through trying times, and Jenny vows to support Dolly as well. This bittersweet tale is a story of mutual devotion and loyalty. While the prognosis is not good for dogs with cancer, Dolly's love provides enduring hope and support for Jenny on her healing journey.

"Wow! I love this honest, refreshing book about childhood cancer and the tender, loving bond of a courageous child with her dog that enables them to endure the intolerable chemotherapy treatments and gives them all the more reason to do so. Highly recommended!"
--David A. Crenshaw, Ph.D., ABPP, Author, & Clinical Director, Children's Home of Poughkeepsie

"In this book, Jenny and her dog, Dolly, both get the dreaded cancer diagnosis. In this sweet, moving journey, Jenny and Dolly show us how they fight through chemotherapy treatment together. I love how genuine, heartfelt, and sincere this story is. It will truly benefit families who struggle with cancer."
--Jill Osborne, EdS, LPC, RPT-S, CPCS

"Jewel Kats and Claudia Marie Lenart accomplished the unimaginable by telling an important and moving story in just a few mesmerizing pages. Jewel introduces the reader to 'Cancer' and the treatment that saves Jenny's life while she comforts the dog she loves. Claudia's pictures are magnificent in their texture, color, detail, and postural simplicity of the characters. I had to read it twice—I could not see through my tears the first time."
--Laurie Zelinger, Ph.D., ABPP, RPT-S, Board Certified Psychologist and author of the Please Explain series

"Jewel Kats tackles cancer in a heartwarming story of friendship and loss. Cancer has no boundaries, as Kats points out, when a young girl and her dog both fight this deadly illness. This book is beneficial for children who are embarking upon a cancer journey, either their own or alongside a family member."
--V.S. Grenier, Award-winning Author & Mom's Choice Honoree

"The C word—not all kids know what it means, but they see the reaction in all who hear the word. In this beautifully illustrated book, author Jewel Kats strives to talk about both symptoms and feelings attached to experiencing cancer. Some of us experience cancer inside ourselves and some of us experience it by watching the impact on those we care about."
--Theresa Fraser, CYW, M.A., CPT-S, Trauma and Loss Clinical Specialist, Registered Psychotherapist
