This book caught my eye at the library because, well, it's red and hard to miss when it's on display! I gave it a quick read. It was a lovely story about how a magical book opens up its finder's imagination.

A girl finds a book and opens it to see pictures of a boy who finds a book and opens it to see pictures of a girl who looks like the girl reading the original book. It's strange and clever and magical but also shows how books can bring two people together or help them imagine all sorts of strange things. This book suggests so many possibilities--and all without words. Very creative.

A young girl finds a red book and notices another boy in the book that is looking at the same book. She goes on an adventure to meet the boy. The story continues when someone else picks up the book at the end of the story. This book is great for younger ages to expand their imagination while they try to make sense of the story by just looking at pictures. ( )

Category/genre: Children's picture book
Notable: Wordless picture book

The author did a great job of creating a imaginative story through illustrations. A young boy finds a red book and as he explores what is inside he notices another young girl who has also found the same red book in a different destination. The book allows the readers to imagine why they both have the same red book and how they are connected by the book. I would love to use this in my second grade class to allow students to expand their creativity and come up with a meaning behind the story. ( )

This book is fun and adventurous when a little girl finds a book and begins to read notices a little boy in the book reading the same book. She then decides to go on an adventure to meet the boy in the book when she then loses it but makes it safely to the boy. Then watches the adventure continue as they watch someone else find the book.
