Red in the Flower Bed by Andrea Nepa
Adoption is an issue that is very close to my heart, so when Tribute books offered me the chance to be a part of the blog tour for Red in the Flower Bed I was very excited. This is my first review of a children’s book, but I don’t think it will be my last!
This book is a story about interracial adoption. It’s nicely done, and it made me smile. However, for children I think the metaphors would have to be explained before they could fully understand what the storyline means. I know that I would have needed it explained if I had read this book while being its target age group.
The illustrations were quite pretty and added a lot to the story. This is a book I would definitely recommend to all. I think it would help adopted children understand a completely life altering event in their lives, and I also think it would give other children a basic understanding of the process as well.
