A Favorite Imagination Builder!

I teach kindergarten and my students have always loved this book. I usually let a child hold a red crayon while I read the story, and they look at the crayon with increasing wonder as the story unfolds. Crayons and imagination can be so magical! This is a wonderful book, especially for little boys.

My sons favorite book

I started taking my son to the library when he was 1 years old. I would set him on the floor and read to him. Now that he is 4 years he goes with me to the library and he picks out his own books. He always picks this one out, he likes me to read it over & over again. Its very colorful and the book almost comes alive. Its a fun book to read.

This book sparks creativity and can be a great teaching tool

I am an Elementary Literacy Resource Teacher, and I often recommend this book to teachers who are working with their students on color words. What better way for children to learn about the color red than to imagine everything they draw with their red crayon coming to life! This can spark much creativity in children's writing, whether independently or dictated to their teacher. A must for every Kindergarten and First Grade classroom.


I am a children's librarian and use this book in story hour programs for children age 3 - 6. Everytime I read it a child always comments, "What a great story." I have also used it at a local day care center and the children always ask me to bring it next time because they want to hear it again. It is one of the few books that I have read that made me want to write to the author to tell her how much I enjoyed reading the book. She offers the readers the possibility of the impossible and what a gift that is.
