Synopsis

Part of The New Road Friends series. Each book in the series includes guidance notes for parents and professionals.



Carol Platteuw and illustrater Nicky Armstrong have created a beautiful set of 5 illustrated books for children. Each title, set among a group of friends at a primary school, explores themes common to adopted and fostered children, following their journeys and introducing the supportive people they meet.



This book tells the story of Sophie and Tom. Sophie and Tom's birth mother suffered from mental illness, the children are placed in foster care and are then adopted by a same sex couple. Their younger sibling is adopted by another family. This book explores the impact on children of being exposed to parental separation and a mother who suffers from depression. The book explores what adoption means and what happens when an adoptive family attend Court together for the granting of the Adoption Order. The book can be read to children by their parent or by a professional working with them. Guidance notes are provided to assist the reader in exploring some of the issues within the book further.
