My review:

Red in the Flower Bed is a wonderful story about interracial adoption.  It is beautifully told through the journey of a little seed that finds it's way into a flower bed.  The seed first grows into a green plant.  As it continues to grow, it finally becomes a beautiful red poppy flower.  Although it is different from the other flowers, it is welcomed into the garden family.  The poppy flower is where it is meant to be. 

Red in the Flower Bed talks about adoption in a loving way that children will find comforting and easily understood.  The illustrated pages have a unique look, as if they were all done by hand.  This book would make a wonderful gift for newly adoptive parents.  I think that this is a book that parents will want to share with their children.
