Red in the Flower Bed - Andrea Nepa
by Mindy Oja
Many children will be attracted to Red in the Flower Bed's beautifully simple, yet colorful illustrations. It shares a universal message about familial acceptance and love. In a broader sense, this book could be applied to fitting in everywhere with the message that we "bloom where we are planted."
I thought this story was very sweet, had great pictures. It's cute.
A great read for any adoptive families, interracial or not, with young readers.
