Boy finds a little red book that takes him to another realm where he meets and befriends a girl from another city. Then she floats away and meets him. ( )

“The Red Book” is a fantastic wordless picture book that I really enjoyed. This book shows that you do not need words in order to create an exciting adventure story. Since the book is wordless, it allows everyone to create their own version of the story and make it personal to themselves. The illustrations keep the plot organized and suspenseful as each page captures one quick moment of the story, with lots of room for predictions and imagination. The characters are developed through the expressions and emotions depicted in the illustrations. You can very clearly see the confusion when the children find the books, the joy when the children see each other for the first time, and the loneliness that the boy feels when the girl disappears. Each page presents a new conflict which keeps the story moving. The big idea of this story is that you never know when or where you might experience a new kind of adventure. ( )

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. ( )
