Red Is Best

5151SGD2GDL._SS400_A Canadian classic, Red Is Best by author Kathy Stinson and illustrated by Robin Baird Lewis, highlights the timeless struggle between what a child sees as important and what a parent sees. “My mom doesn’t understand about red,” our narrator states at the beginning. Red boots take bigger steps and red mittens make the best snowballs. But Mom is more concerned with warmth and matching outfits. Rest assured, our narrator gets the last word.
