Red in the Flower Bed

Image

"Red in the Flower Bed" by Andrea Nepa is a touching and beautifully crafted children's book on the topic of interracial adoption.

The story follows a little seed from the beginning of it's journey of uncertainty to the end where it becomes a flower with positive nurturing and care. The seed is an analogy for the child who is to be adopted and gives a gentle explanation for the adoptive child who may wonder why.

The illustrations are very simple yet emotive. The book would suit not only an interracially adoptive family but any adoptive family.

I am a great supporter of adoption and I lament the fact that the adoption process is made so difficult  and sometimes inaccessible for so many. The author is an adoptive parent herself which is quite obvious as this is a book written from the heart.

Kelly, thank you very much for such a nice review of RED IN THE FLOWER BED. I'm glad you appreciated the book for being written by an adoptive mother. You're right, it adds such a layer of authenticity and truth to the story.

We are grateful that you took the time to share the book with the readers of The Handmaden and for participating in the blog tour.
