Benjamin Koo talks to kids in a way that kids understand, not like talking to doorknobs. He is the one telling the story. It is great because it tells us lots of information about adopted children. I like the cool illustrations, like the picture where he is on the running track and the one where he is drooling spaghetti. It shows how they do stuff in his family to celebrate their cultures. And I like the front cover picture, where his family is giving a toast to Benjamin Koo. It tells you that you are not different from others, and it doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from. I love this book.
