From the noble strength of Crazy Horse to the innovative genius of Steve Jobs, Adoptees Who Changed the World is a board book introduction to people who made a difference in the world–and who also happen to be adopted

Simple text by adoptive mother Lorri Antosz Benson and adorable illustrations by Juanita Londoño-Gaviria teach young readers about the contributions of eight famous adoptees: George Washington Carver, Crazy Horse (Tashunca-Uitco), Nelson Mandela, Faith Hill, Steve Jobs, Jamie Foxx, Simone Biles, and Kristen Chenoweth. A quote from each hero is included on each spread, along with colorful, delightful artwork.
Lorri Antosz Benson is an award-winning television producer, writer, author, family advocate, and former internationally syndicated columnist. She worked on Donahue, the acclaimed show hosted by the legendary Phil Donahue, for 15 years, eight of which were spent as senior producer. Lorri received two Emmy Awards and 10 Emmy nominations for her work on Donahue and was twice awarded the American Women in Radio and Television commendation. She spent 11 years writing Talk theTalk, an internationally syndicated column on talk television. Illustrator Juanita Londoño Gaviria was born in Colombia amidst the mountains, surrounded by nature, birds, and flowers. She believes that what led her to illustration was bedtime stories—she wouldn’t go to sleep if her parents didn’t read from a storybook. Juanita studied fashion design in her hometown, Medellín, and graduated with a degree in concept art from Vancouver Film School.
