Two GREAT red sled books…
Red SledLita Judge (Author, Illustrator)
In this almost wordless picture book, a host of woodland creatures take a child’s sled for a nighttime joy ride. Their whimsical ride is gorgeously depicted in bold watercolor, complemented by humorous expressions and pitch-perfect sound effects. With a timeless tone and classic characters, RED SLED will become a wintertime favorite (Amazon description).
Red SledPatricia Thomas (Author), Chris Demarest (Illustrator)
A boy and his father share a winter night of sledding. Outside, the crescent moon is shining brightly and the world is covered with snow. Inside, a boy and his father feel sad. So they put on their hats and coats and climb a hill, pulling a red sled. Father and son climb aboard and zoom down the hill under a starlit sky. With their spirits lifted high, they return home for a mug of hot chocolate. Then it’s time for bed. Patricia Thomas’s loving story, affectionately illustrated by Chris L. Demarest, is told with the utmost simplicity (Amazon description).
