Book Review and Giveaway
by Melissa Gill
Hello! Welcome to The Missionary Mama, today's stop on a the blog tour for the adorable children's book, Red in the Flower Bed: An Illustrated Children's Story about Interracial Adoption by Andrea Nepa.
|Andrea Nepa and her daughter, Leah|
"The journey of adoption is beautifully 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. Children and adults will enjoy this simple yet meaningful story and homespun illustrations. The book's loving approach helps children to understand adoption. Andrea Nepa has captured the essence of adoption and family, and has illustrated it beautifully with images and poetry that even a small child can comprehend and enjoy."
