I used this book in my “Red” storytime the other day and I loved it! There are almost no words, save for the noises the animals make when sledding (think “whoa” and “eeeee” and “floump…ft”), but the illustrations and animal expressions more than make up for the lack of words. Almost every child’s eyes were glued to the pictures and they all laughed as the mouse flew down the hill holding onto the porcupine’s quills. “Ouchey!” I heard one child whisper.
I can see myself using this book in many storytimes to come: winter, bears, forest animals, sleds, snow etc. The possibilities are endless.
