In Red Is Best, Kathy Stinson takes a simple idea--the clash between the imaginative world of the toddler and the commonsensical world of parents--and develops it with humour and feeling. The enduring popularity of this understated picture book (first published in 1982) is no doubt due to its avoidance of the saccharine language and contrived story lines of so many picture books for this age group. But it also lies in Stinson's understanding of the toddler mind and in illustrator Robin Baird Lewis's lighthearted depiction of the feisty Kelly (who could be a younger sister of that famous 1950s picture-book heroine Eloise). The conclusion to Red Is Best distils toddler logic perfectly. "I like red," Kelly says, "because red is best."

I was very disappointed to find out it was only a 3" by 3" book. I was thinking it was bigger. Nothing is said about the size of it when you purchase it.Published 1 month ago by Chris Cote

I can't believe it was a mini book. I wish I would have read the other reviewers before ordering it and paid attention to the size. Waste of money.Published on Feb. 16 2012 by Marla
