Book Review originally posted in December 2010
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.
