Red in the Flower Bed
by Amber Clark
Great story, to discuss adoption (interracial adoptions), I loved the illustrations. There really isn't much I can say about this book, that hasn't already been said in the synopsis. I was excited about reading this book, my mom was adopted and we have family members who have recently adopted. I will definitely, tell them about this book.
The poppy seed has to leave its home; it is carried by the wind. The poppy seed finally lands in a garden. It blooms into a beautiful red poppy. The color red was missing from the garden, so adding a red flower made the garden a rainbow of colors.
