Elliot

Author(s) : Julie Pearson

Hardcover, 32 pages.

Item #485859

A gentle, warmhearted story of one child’s journey through the foster care system in search of a “forever, forever” home.

Elliot’s parents love him very much, but all is not well. When he cries, they do not understand why. When he yells, they do not know what to do. When he misbehaves, they do not know how to react. One day a social worker named Thomas comes to visit, and Elliot’s world turns upside-down.

Manon Gauthier’s soft collage illustrations feature approachable rabbit characters, while Julie Pearson‘s soothing, repetitive text guides Elliot gently through the foster child system. The new families that care for the little boy are kind, but everything is strange and new, and the sudden changes make him want to cry and yell AND misbehave. Then, when it becomes clear that Elliot’s parents will never be able to take him back, Thomas sets out to find Elliot one last home—a forever, forever home with a family that will love and care for him no matter what.

Ages 5-8 years
