Carmine: A Little More Red
Written & illustrated by Melissa Sweet
picture book
Recommend Ages: 4-7
And, as Carmine takes off on her bicycle with Rufus, that is just what she intends to do. But Carmine is a dreamy painter, always in search of capturing just the right hue in her drawings, and this drawing—the one she begins in a lovely forest clearing just off the path to Granny’s—must be her best yet. Here is a new, lively retelling of a timeless tale with enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing until the very end.

Red-Rojo
Written by Meritxell Marti & illustrated by Xavier Salomó
board book
Recommend Ages: 0-3
Did you know that colors can tell stories? The illustrations in this charming board book introduce your brilliant baby to all kinds of things that are red, including a clanging fire truck, a playful squirrel eluding a grabby crab, a jar of strawberry jam and a hungry red fox, a beautiful sunset, and a field of poppies under an apple tree. Little Red Riding Hood carrying a basket of strawberries begins this fun story that leads in surprising directions, all with a strong and vibrant red hue. Part of the Colors series.
