Book Tour: Red in the Flower Bed by Andrea Nepa
I just finished reading Red in The Flower Bed. It's is an excellent book for children ages four to eight, that tells an adoption story that any child will love. Red In The Flower bed is a story that will help children understand adoption through poems and colorful pictures. My daughter and I both loved this book.
The book tells the story of a seed that is transported to a new flower bed (family). The seed grows into a flower that is very unlike the other flowers in the bed, yet a perfect fit. The flowers are a family of many colors that all blend together into a beautiful group that is so loved by each other.
The illustrations are bold and beautiful. The colors pop out and go along well with the story. My daughter enjoyed pointing out the different hues of the flowers as we read this.
I would recommend this book to anybody who wants to teach their children about adoption or who have an adopted child. This book was a great opener to discussing how some children are adopted.
