Although a majority of information about adoption, including its processes, advice and contact information is already online, there is still a benefit to considering the purchase of adoption books. The Internet is an open space for free speech and while it'd be great to think every person who posts online has their facts correct, websites do not go through the rigorous fact-checking and proofreading as a "how to" manual or adoption book will.
Adoption books may also be more in-depth than a website. Writers may have more resources for research or first-hand experience. They're also not as anonymous as the Internet and tied to a publishing house as well as an author's reputation. When it comes to the subjects covered in adoption books, there's almost nothing left unwritten about.
Perhaps one of the more popular adoption books are those for children and young adults. Any time someone reads, they are learning more about the world around them and, consequently, themselves. Reading allows children, young adults and adults to interact with situations they may identify with or learn to do so by reading. Reading an adoption story can make it easier to discuss adoption-related issues as well as serves as a bonding experience for children and adoptive parents. Some are more obvious about their intent and others are metaphors about belonging, thinking about a birth mother and simplifying the complexities of adoption and adoptive family dynamics.
