The book tells the journey of adoption 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. The book’s loving approach helps children to understand adoption.

The book has already received a lot of positive attention.

“What a charming story of ‘seeds’ being planted in the perfect place, exactly where they belong,” said LeAnn Thieman, co-author of “Chicken Soup for the Adopted Soul.”To order “Red in the Flower Bed” or for more information visit http://www.tribute-books.com/minicart/products.html
