You should never judge a book by its cover. This little girl finds a strange red book in the snow on the way to school, which takes her on the journey of a lifetime. This book with twists and turns - without even uttering a single word, took me on a journey I wouldn't forget. ( )

I loved the almost minimalist simplicity of the illustrations. They made it all the more surreal, in my own opinion. Well, as the saying goes, a good book will take a reader on a journey - why couldn't the converse be true? ( )

"The Red Book" is a wordless picture book. I think this book is a great option to read to children simply because they can let their imaginations run wild. They are able to form their own story in their heads of what they believe the illustrator may be trying to tell. Often times during reading circle at the daycare, I have the students tell me about the stories they are reading by only looking at the pictures. I think this is a good strategy. There are a couple of students who are able to pick up certain words on the pages, and others do actually recognize where the words are on the pages. ( )

"The Red Book" is a delightful book that takes readers on a journey across the ocean and continents into a new world of possibilities. As the book travels along its way it finds new readers at each place it lands. I can see exactly why this book is a Caldecott Honor Book. The illustrations are extremely detailed with watercolor, ink- and- wash panels each page speaks loudly without saying a word. This adventure, fantasy book offers readers a world of excitement using visual representation of the story only. This wordless book is rich with detail and transports readers on an unlikely journey into a world of magic and endless wonder. ( )

This book is truly amazing in the sense that it does not need to be “read” to read it. The book can be read by all despite language barriers. The pictures tell the story to the reader. This is a wordless book that tells the story of a journey of a magical red book that is found initially by a little girl that connects her to someone else. The Red Book is a book about friendship, imagination and exploration. ( )
