"Red in the Flower Bed" by Andrea Nepa (Blog Tour)
Red in the Flower Bed is a wonderful children’s book about interracial adoption. The story is about a little, black poppy flower seed that had to move on and find a better home because the ground was too dry. The little seed ends up finding a home amongst the roses, violets, and marigolds, and as it grows, the garden gets more and more beautiful. I love the illustrations in this book as well as the font used. Everything flows together very well. If you have a young, adopted, interracial child, I highly recommend this book. It is very cute, sentimental, and heartwarming.
