    The Red Book By Barbara Lehman


    I love the striking cover of this wordless picture book, a small child running through a bright red negative space although the placement of the medal makes him appear to be fleeing from the moon Maybe this image set the bar too high, as I found the book itself disappointing The idea is fascinating if not totally original finding a book in which one sees someone else reading the same book and looking back However, I felt as if Lehman had this idea and then dashed something off without giving it [...]

    very clever left me smiling and wondering and wondering and smiling just what will happen next

    This wordless picture book was similar toDavid Wiesner s book, Flotsam Unfortunately, I didn t feel like this book even came close to the talent that was found in Flotsam I found it to be slightly confusing to understand and the illustrations were nothing spectacular It s not that it isn t a nice book, it s just that it wasn t great.

    Recommended ages 4 8From BooklistPreS Gr 2 In this wordless mind trip for tots, Lehman develops a satisfying fantasy in a series of panels framed with thick white borders The effect is of peering through portals, an experience shared by the characters as they independently stumble across enchanted red books that provide them with a videophone like connection Though wordless picture books often seem to be the province of fine artists indulging in high concept braggadocio as in Istvan Banyai s 199 [...]

    I was left surprisingly unmoved and unimpressed.I love books, and books about books, and I ve liked some of this author s other wordless picture books.But here her illustrations aren t that special, though I did enjoy the girl and boy looking at each other, and I did love the balloons.The wordless story is sparse and very short and simple The idea of it is great David Wiesner wowed me with a similar seeming story in his book Flotsam, but this book paled in comparison, and I made the comparison I [...]

    This was a really good one, recommended by my friend Maura Harvard class of 1989 s 20th reunion Hits close to home with reflecting on what you ve done in those 20 years, the promise, potential and authenticity of each life, especially this group with its Harvard fueled expectations Author has a nice ability to really change voice with each character A really lovely read.

    This is a wordless book about a wordless red book that can transport you to other places A fun concept and I enjoy the homage it pays to books and imagination.

    This book is really intriguing and striking The fact that it doesn t have a true title with words gives an example to students that not all books are the same, and they can be totally different and creative I also feel the book does a really good job at building a community of readers and connecting them to one another It can be used in the classroom to show similarities and build a sense of togetherness in the class.
