On a summer night in China, a baby girl was born. She was perfect.
So begins the story of one baby’s journey from her birth parents in China, who dream of a better life for their daughter, to her adoptive parents on the other side of the world, who dream of the life they can give her.
A turtle, a peacock, a monkey, a panda, and some fish shepherd the baby as she floats in a basket on a moonlit, winding river into the loving arms of her new parents.
“…this lyrical story of destiny and love, as interpreted in Barton’s playful, textured illustrations, is a triumph.“
