Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming Book Highly recommended. Charming book about a little girl who will not be swayed from wearing, using, playing with anything that does not bear her favourite colour. The illustrations and story really stand out compared to the mounds of children's stories being published nowadays.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is one nasty little girl I was excited to read my children this 'Canadian Classic', but was very disappointed. It's the story of how a little girl whines and complains and only likes red things. She has zero-appeal. My kids didn't like her, couldn't relate and I couldn't close the book fast enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Childhood favourite Love this book! And now picking up a copy for my son. This was the book I learned to read from, maybe because of it's simplicity. It will always have a place in my heart!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple by somehow lovely book This is such a nice book. I like it partly because it is not about a little girl obsessed with pink. The choice to focus on red is a lovely choice. Parents will love it, because it rings so true. How many times has your child insisted on having their lunch in the same "special" dish, even though it will taste the same on any old plate? The repetition of the phrase "red is best" makes it a great early reader book as well. Has been enjoyed for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For everyone who's Mom has never quite understood them! This book is brilliantly written from a kid's point of view (i.e. "juice tastes better in the red cup"), so all kids will enjoy it. I thought it was a nice touch that Kelly's mom lost patience about having everything red. That is SO true! And just for the record, my red sweater keeps me warmer, my red mitts make better snowballs, my red shoes make my feet dance, my red socks make my toes wiggle.....
