Maybe Days


Introduces the people and procedures involved in foster care, and the feelings, reactions, and concerns of new foster children. Includes an afterword for caregivers.


In Maybe Days, Wilgocki and Wright use child-friendly text that identifies common thoughts and feelings children experience in foster care. The answer to questions about seeing siblings, about returning home, about visits, and other queries is often “Maybe.” The sincere and reassuring information that children want to know are complimented by colorful, culturally sensitive illustrations. Children are introduced to the roles of various grownups in the foster care system. It’s important not to let the waiting and the maybes get in the way of other things. Maybe Days emphasizes that “a kid’s job is always to be a kid.” An extensive afterword for adults caring for foster children describes the child’s experience, underscores the importance of open communication, and outlines a variety of ways to help children adjust and thrive.
