Several different perspectives on adoption are presented in this Reading Rainbow episode. The featured book is Through Moon and Stars and Night Skies, written by Ann Turner and read by Andrew Lei, who is adopted. One family talks about the adoption of their baby, while a young girl and her mother discuss her questions about her real parents. Two young boys reveal their thoughts about the adoption process. There are many adjustments to be made in the adoption process, but the program shows that the end result is the same -- a family whose members love one another. Other books reviewed include Free to Be a Family: A Book About All Kinds of Belonging and Fathers, Mothers, Sisters, Brothers: A Collection of Family Poems.
