Three cheers for the Robbie Rabbit books! We're extremely impressed with these books. Children in out-of-home care identify with the characters and realistic storylines. The foster care story touches on a few universal events that children in care usually experience, and it shows how Robbie deals with these events. We ended up ordering several Robbie Trail Through Foster Care books for the new foster parents who finished our STARS training. The response has been terrific. Worth every penny.

Helps a child 'in the system' understand. Robbie's Trail Through Adoption helps children finally understand how they got to the point of adoption and the role everyone has played in helping them get there. The story is excellent. I also really like the activities. They give children the sense that they are not the only ones going through this, and that someone really does understand what they are feeling.

We were so impressed that we ordered more. Finally, we have something that we can share with children that opens doors to conversation about this confusing time in their lives. We were so impressed with the quality of these materials that we ordered several copies to give to our new foster parents. Everyone on staff is pleased.

Former foster child offers multiple resources to help children who are having a tough time
Adam Robe, abandoned at age five, is now a child welfare professional and author dedicated to helping children in need.
In 2008, he created the Robbie Rabbit™ books for children having a tough time in life. Initially, the topics were targeted to foster and/or adoption-eligible children. However, in 2012, the series expanded to cover a number of other significant life experiences (such as divorce) that often are troublesome for children.
Adam conducts speaking engagements and trainings across the U.S., drawing on his personal experiences in foster care and experiences gained through nearly 15 years as a child welfare professional. He provides excellent insight into the minds of foster and adopted children, while delivering valuable suggestions and practical solutions for adults who seek help in working with these children.
