Red in the Flower Bed is a book about interracial adoption. This tells the story of a seed dropped from a poppy flower that travels to places until it found its new home. The author, Andrea Nepa made a great illustration of adoption in this story book.
The colors are perfect, and I like the way the story is told - through a rhyme which children can appreciate better. The book is recommended to children 4 to 8 years old. A must read with your adopted child.
About the book
The journey of adoption is beautifully depicted with the comforting imagery of a poppy flower who is welcomed into a garden family. It is a charming story of seeds being planted in the perfect place - exactly where they belong. Children and adults will enjoy this simple yet meaningful story and homespun illustrations. The book's loving approach helps children to understand adoption. Andrea Nepa has captured the essence of adoption and family, and has illustrated it beautifully with images and poetry that even a small child can comprehend and enjoy.
