A Crazy-Much Love by Joy Jordan-Lake


Back of Book:
How MUCH is the crazy-much love?” This simple question is answered as two parents recount the journey of adopting their daughter and the many milestone moments that follow. From the child’s first bath and first time riding a tricycle, all the way to her boarding that big yellow bus, the crazy-much love grows SO MUCH that it spills out the windows and busts down the doors. A warm, lyrical celebration of the deep love parents hold for their children and a comforting message for kids about how there can be only one special YOU.
My Review:
I received a copy of this picture book from Two Lions Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
This is a stunning book that celebrates the beauty and joy of international adoption. Joy drew from her own experiences of adopting her daughter from China and created a love letter from parents to their new child. The text discusses all the important details of adoption like getting the room ready, getting on a plane to pick up the child and having a party when they get home. The text focuses on the repetition of the statement A Crazy Much Love throughout the child’s milestones.
The illustrations by Sonia Sanchez are vibrant and full of bursts of color.
She captured the tender love between parents and children in a truly moving way.
This is a gift to give to anyone adopting a child. I hope to adopt myself one day, and this story showed me how beautiful international adoption can be.
