A Children's Book Review Over a Sweet Adoption Book

The topic of adoption often just pops up with kids throughout the course of a day. It's usually not a conversation that conversation that a parent purposely plans, though they may want it that way. I Bet She Called Me Sugar Plum is a beautifully illustrated book that does not have a strong adoption theme, but the topic is thoughtfully woven into the story. The book shows a mother and daughter spending the day together doing fun activities, and eventually getting ready for bed. As the daughter learns about her grandmother, she asks about her birth mother.
