Item Description...
Flip-book style tells two stories in one. In side one, readers will meet two little Chinese girls - Funni Unni and Bei Be - who live in an orphanage on the other side of the world. Their story begins with a long ride to meet their new family. In side two, the readers meet a family searching for two little girls. Their story is of a long ride around the world where they meet two little girls with black hair, button noses, and bright eyes as black as coal. The journeys combine in the middle of the book where the two groups become a family. With gorgeous, detailed illustrations, this book will be treasured not only by families who have adopted but by families of all kinds.

Love it!  Sep 28, 2007
Great book for those of us with babies from China! Blatant Christian gospel message -- fine for our house, but not for others that I know with children from China. Lovely as a gift if the spirituality matches.
Recommended for young readers age 5 and up  Apr 12, 2005
Expertly written by Don Regier and deftly illustrated by Karen Pritchett, The Long Ride is actually two stories in one "flip it over" book. One one side it's the story of a child's search for his family when they get separated in a large Chinese city. Flip it over and it's the story of the family's search for their missing young one! The alagorical message is one of adoption and the family of God. Bright, detailed color illustrations bring the hustle and bustle of a busy city to life, in this entertaining two-part tale recommended for young readers age 5 and up.

The Long Ride - the perfect Christian adoption story  Apr 7, 2005
This book tells the story of a caucasian couple adopting Asian children from two perspectives, the toddler child's and the parents'. Although I read this book often, it is rare that I can read it without choking on my tears.

My daughter fell in love with this book when she was 2 1/2. She was adopted from China and this book really helps us teach her about adoption. In fact, she often asks me to read the book using her Chinese name in lieu of one of the character's names.

The artwork is beautiful as is the relation of the adoption journey to God's adopting his children into his family.

Unfortunately, at best the stories are loosely related on Chinese adoption and are inaccurate regarding the process and the ability to adopt non-blood-related siblings. But the most disappointing aspect is the parents' apparent lack all understanding of Chinese culture; the father does not even know what chop sticks are. Additionally, the book does contain a reference to all the money involved in adoption.

When my daughter is better able to understand the book, perhaps I will only read her the children's story and skip or alter the family's story. For now, she cannot comprehend the negative aspects of the book and it is one of our favorite books to read.
