Red in the Flower Bed Book Tour Stop
by Melissa Vera
I am so excited to be the next stop on the blog tour for this awesome book about adoption. Red in the Flower Bed is a story written by Andrea Nepa, who is a mom of an adopted daughter. The book is dedicated to her. This book is cute explanation for children who wonder why they may look different from their adopted families. The story is about a poppy seed that is sent away from its mother so that it can have a better life. The wind picks it up and sends it down to a flower bed so it can grow. When it sprouts the other flowers welcome it and they become a rainbow.
This book is awesome for those who looking for an unique way to make children understand about adoption. I loved how the author used a poppy seed - red being the most vibrant color- to show that we all maybe different but in the end we all are the same. This book is a must have for children to read.
Not only was I impressed with the way the story was written but the illustrations were amazing. Those alone would draw my attention to the book.
If you are interested in purchasing this book you can find it at Tribute Books.
I promise it will be well worth the money spent.
