I realized it’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a children’s book. We’re in that fun phase where Middle Brother wants the same books over and over, so it’s been a while since I’ve read a new one.
Red actually isn’t new. We’ve had it four a year or more. We enjoyed it for a while when we first got it, then rotated in to new things. It made a reappearance because we still haven’t unpacked all the books from the move and I remembered how much we’d loved it.
It’s a beautiful wordless picture book. I like that every time we “read” it, the story is slightly different, since it’s directed by what the toddler picks out in the pictures. The images are gorgeous, in all that black and white and red. It’s a fun twist on the Red Riding Hood story that I believe we’ll keep enjoying even after the littles have been exposed to the original tale.
If you’re looking to weave a story together with your littles, pick this one up.
