Reviewed by Robin Clark for Readers Favorite Take a walk into an enchanted forest in "Red Knit Cap Girl" written by Naoko Stoop. This is a tale about a little girl in a red knit cap and her playmate, white bunny, who explore the forest and wonder about everything. She includes a bear, a squirrel, a hedgehog, and an owl on her adventures to find out how to talk to the moon. Red Knit Cap Girl realizes she can’t reach the moon in the trees, and can’t reach it in its reflection in the water. Red Knit Cap Girl just can’t seem to find a way to figure out how to talk with the moon. She thinks maybe having a celebration will help, so she and her friends plan one. After the celebration has started, however, they can’t seem to find the moon anywhere. What has happened to her? Come along with Red Knit Cap Girl as she seeks an answer to her question, “How can I talk to the moon?” "Red Knit Cap Girl" is such a delightful tale of an enchanting group of characters. It brought a huge smile to my three year old's face from the first pages. "Red Knit Cap Girl" makes you wish you could talk with the forest animals and the moon and actually have them answer you. This fascinating story will sweep you up and carry you away to an enchanted place and time. The illustrations are absolutely great and also done entirely by the author Naoko Stoop.
