The Red Book can encourage non-readers, like myself, to find an interest in books. Even though there are no words in this book it has somewhat opened my eyes to the connection that is present in reading. This books has created imagination that shows a blossoming friendship through simply picking up a book. This book can be inspirational to many children and adults. ( )

The Red Book, had its own twist. Two people who became friends were both reading a book about meeting one another. What's interesting about the book is figuring out how these two kids met and how the author use different pictures to explain that to the audience. I think the meaning of the book was that people can meet through books or connect with each other through them. ( )

I found this book to be very cute. The author tells a story about friendship through pictures and imagination. Lehman's book is beautifully illustrated and shows how children can connect through books.

Lehman uses only pictures to draw the viewer into a world where books open doors to friendship. One child finds an abandoned book and happily reclaims it to find that she can see into another child's world. Each child is delighted to see and be seen. Kids will love the surprises and be interested in what happens next. The theme of this book could be friendship or acceptance. A good opportunity to talk about how important friendships are and how reading is a good way to share with others by discussing what books are about, and how they make us feel, see, and learn things about ourselves and others.

The Red Book is a picture book good for all ages. The use of pictures leaves the students thinking and coming up with their own ideas and vocabulary. The book teaches a lesson about friendship and emotions. The ending of The Red Book leaves audience curious. ( )
