The Red boon is about how reading and friendship can lead you to do the impossible. The little boy was so excited when he foud the red book and when he met the boy he did the impossible to meet him in person. I really liked this picture book because even if it didn't have works the pictures said everything you needed to know. Also, it shows you how amazing books are that they can take you places, maybe not in real life but it your imagination leads you to new places. ( )

The wordless book, The Red Book, lets readers use their imagination. It might help with a student who is not interested in reading or cannot read words yet. Readers use the pictures to create their own words and story. In the book two children who have the read book can see each other and make one another happy. It is a crazy and an amazing thing to have a wordless book move you. This book would be great in a classroom to start off the basic knowledge of a picture book. ( )

The Red Book is an adorable book that captivates the readers attention with a series of pictures. With all the great pictures Barbara Lehman is able to tell the story of two kids that happen to find a mysterious red book in their daily paths. The kids are able to form a friendship just by seeing each other smile. This is a great example of how people can form friendships through books. ( )

The book is about children having an imagination and letting their imagnatiion take them around the word. With the book being wordless gives the students reading it a chance to tell their views of the story giving them an imagnation. ( )

The Red Book is one of the most interesting picture books I have read. First of all, there are no words so the reader has to use the illustrations and the imagination to come up with the story. The book is about a boy and a girl who become friends by being able to see each other through a map in the book. I thought it was very interesting that there is not a dialogue between the kids but somehow they are able to communicate. To me, this serves as a good example of how children are very open to friendship no matter race, culture or even language. ( )
