Overview

A modern classic that continues to prove no color is finer.

Young Kelly's mom doesn't understand about red. Sure, the brown mittens are warmer, but the red mitts make better snowballs. And the red boots aren't just for rain; they take bigger steps in any weather. And, yes! a green cup does make a difference ... juice tastes better in the red cup. No doubt about it, red is best.

Kathy Stinson's classic tale of one toddler's obstinate color preference has been charming readers for 25 years now. With over 275,000 copies in print, Red Is Best has steadily marched its way to become a children's book classic. Now a new generation of readers can discover Stinson's insistent young heroine, aptly captured in the simple drawings by Robin Baird Lewis, each punctuated by the right dazzle of red.

This title is especially made for the lap audience. "My Mom doesn't understand about red. I like my red stockings best. My Mom says, "Wear these. Your white stockings look good with that dress. But I can jump higher in my red stockings. I like my red stockings best." This is a great deal of fun to read with pre-schoolers.

    My daughter received this book as a gift when she was one years

    My daughter received this book as a gift when she was one years old. She fell in love with it as a toddler, adored it as a young school girl and idolized the color red as a tween! We started giving it as a gift for every baby shower we attended for years, along with red accessories like hats, barrettes, socks, sleepers etc. Now my little girl is about to have her first baby.......and you guessed it! She will be receiving the board book version, complete with plenty of red accessories for her little girl to cherish!

    Highly recommended

    Excellent book! We've been using it in the classroom for about 7 years and it never gets old.
