All About Me was written by two adoptive mothers, this simple, direct children's book was designed to be an invaluable tool for adoptive parents who wish to provide their young children an avenue for understanding the meaning of being adopted. When incorporated into a regular reading schedule, it provides consistent opportunities for parents and children to have open, frank and meaningful conversations about being adopted. Illustrated with wonderful, colorful art produced by adopted children, it encourages children to participate in the story by "filling in the blanks" using their crayons and washable markers. The large format is easy for young fingers to handle and it's washable, so the fun can happen over and over again!
All About Me has been accepted by Tapestry Books for their spring catalog and is being reviewed by several national adoption associations and organizations to be included on their suggested reading lists. The response to this book so far as been encouraging with enthusiatic reviews at an adoption conference in Hawaii and The Cradle on the mainland US. The Cradle is a well-established adoption agency through which Lynn Burwash and her twin sister where adopted as infants. In turn, Lynn has adopted Skylar, her three year old daughter through The Cradle.

Lynn Burwash & Cie McMullin are middle-aged adoptive mothers who became fast friends while living in Hawaii over five years ago. They have many things in common, the two most important being their adopted children (Lynn has two and Cie has two) and a desire to help other adoptive parents to conquer the hurdles of living well as adoptive parents. They wrote ALL ABOUT ME in response to their realization that many adoptive parents fail to tell their children they are adopted because they don't know when or how to bring up the subject or start the conversation. Lynn & Cie plan future books and are looking forward to a favorable response to All About Me.
