Red in the Flower Bed by Andrea Nepa - Book Review and E-Book Giveaway
by Robin McCoy
5 stars out of 5
What a charming book about interracial adoption, Red in the Flower Bed is. This rhyming children's storybook follows a seed that is dropped by a poppy flower, and winds up in a family garden. From there, through nurturing and love, it grows into a confident and beautiful red Poppy.
The illustrations in this book are simply amazing. They blend with the text and allow readers to truly find beauty in the red Poppy.
People who adopt are special people. They look beyond age and race, and only see the child for what they are -- in need of a loving family. They open their homes and hearts and accept these children as their own. Andrea is just one of these special people. It is nice how she created this book, in honor of her adopted daughter, Leah. What a great way to share this special gift in life, through the use of a beautiful flower. If you have adopted a child, this is a great book to share with your little angel.
