Red in the Flower Bed by Andrea Nepa


I am really sorry to Andrea and Tribute books for being late on this book review posting. I guess the holiday season has just gotten the better of me this week.  I thank Tribute books for the opportunity to  have reviewed this cute rhyming book with the theme of interracial adoption.  The pictures are bright and cheery.  It is a short quick sing song book with a very wonderful message.  This is a charming message using the poppy seed as the illustration throughout the book.  Nepa's book will help a child better understand what adoption truly means.

Andrea Nepa is the mother of an adopted Vietnamese daughter named Leah. In 2001, Adoptions from the Heart assisted with the international adoption. Andrea dedicated her book to her daughter: "For my dear Leah, whose journey in her young life has already taken her to far away and unexpected places." In 2006, Leah was diagnosed with cancer. She is currently in remission. Andrea lives with Leah and her husband, David, in Haddonfield, New Jersey. She is a registered dietitian for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
