Format: Paperback
This was one of my favourites as a child, and now that I've reached the ripe old age of 19, I still read it now and then. This book is brilliantly written from a kid's point of view (i.e. "juice tastes better in the red cup"), so all kids will enjoy it. I thought it was a nice touch that Kelly's mom lost patience about having everything red. That is SO true!
And just for the record, my red sweater keeps me warmer, my red mitts make better snowballs, my red shoes make my feet dance, my red socks make my toes wiggle.....

This is a "feel good" book! I first bought this for my niece, and I loved it so much, I had to get one myself! I think Stinson really hits on the way a child's imagination works. The little girl, Kelly, can do anything when she is wearing her favorite color red. It makes me want to go buy everything red!

Perfect book for teaching opinion writing to young children. Opinion and reasons for why red is best are clearly stated!

Format: Paperback
This book does not attempt to explain preferences in reasonable terms, but in the terms of a child. The red mittens are best because they make better snowballs. The red paint puts singing in her head. The juice just tastes better in the red cup. She likes red because red is best - just as simple as that.

And we can see from the pictures that some of these arguments (like the one about the red cup and red pajamas) she wins and others (like the red rainboots for the snow) she simply doesn't. Pretty realistic.

My nieces and I also talk about why her red mitts "have holes in them" or why she "hardly has any red paint left". I'm sure you can work it out :)

This is a simple, engaging book with simple, uncluttered illustrations. Please, check it out!

Did I miss something in the book description? This book is 3 inches by 3 inches!
Very disappointed. Who even knew they made books that small?!

A Kid's Review on December 27, 2005
Format: Paperback
I discovered this book in the late 80's when my kindergarten teacher read it to us. I liked it so much that I begged my grandma to buy it for me when we were shopping. I had a fascination with the colour pink back then so I could relate. I would only drink my milk or juice in my pink cup and no other, and only sleep if I had my pink blanket and stuff like that just as in this book with red.

The seller said that the book was used but in good condition. This turned out to be a gross overstatement since it turned out not only to be in poor condition but the last page was entirely ripped out! I couldn't even bear to bring the book to school to read it to my children as I had planed.
