      I love this book. bright and colorful illustrations. Rhyming text about sledding. "Still hill. Far star. Snow aglow. Nighttime climb. Steep leap. Slide ride." Great read aloud to share with toddlers and elementary kids.

      Booklist (September 1, 2008 (Vol. 105, No. 1))Preschool-Grade 2. A dad, a lad, and a red sled are the just-right combination for a story-poem about a father-son nighttime sledding adventure. The minimal text is mostly comprised of two rhyming words per page that set the stage and describe the action: “Sad lad. Sad dad. Fat hat. Knit mitt. Still hill. Far star. Snow aglow.” The bright, loosely rendered watercolor illustrations embellish the spare text adding a few details here and there, for [...]

      Rating 2.5 starsRed Sled follows a father and son on one snowy evening as they decide to trek up the nearest hill and sled down it.With minimalist writing, I believe the illustrations really tell most of the story. Most of the sentences were made up of two words and I was wondering, why not just get rid of the words all together? I did not need them to tell me what was going on.But at the end of Red Sled, there is an author’s note from Patricia Thomas that explained her minimalist style and me [...]

      Red Sled by Patricia Thomas, illustrated by Chris L. Demarest tells of a boy and his father who share a winter night of sledding.The text features a very large font and rhyming. The structure of the story poem in inspired by an ancient form of chiasmus that creates a kind of mirror image. An author's note explains the structure and the adaption used for this book.Demarest's watercolor illustrations feature large pictures that are bright and feature cartoon-like drawings. My favorite images inclu [...]

      Genre: Realistic FictionReview:School Library JournalPreS-Gr 1A father and son go sledding down a hill one snowy night in this charming picture book. The brief text consists of easy-to-read words in rhyming pairs ("Still hill./Far star./Snow aglow"). According to an author's note, the structure of the story-poem was inspired by an ancient writing pattern called chiasmus, "a format that creates a kind of mirror image." Bright watercolor pictures capture perfectly the downcast faces of the charact [...]

      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.

      My almost-five-year-old son picked this book out from the library today. Meh. The text in this book underwhelmed me. Early on, we have "Sad dad" and "Sad lad", and that's about as good as the text gets. There is something of a story, but how it is told -- meh. The artwork, however, is quite dazzling, from the vibrant red sled on the front cover, to the adorable bunny backside on the back cover. Had I read this book to my son two, even three, years ago, I might have liked it more, because my son [...]

      Red Sled is a wonderful book about the relationship between a dad and his son. The little boy is sad and his father takes him outside to go sledding. The boy and his father put on their hats and coats and climb a hill, pulling a red sled. Both of them jump aboard the red sled zoom down the hill under a starlit sky. They return home for a mug of hot chocolate. This a great book for many reasons. The rhyming words reinforce early literacy skills in young readers along with a easy to read script wh [...]

      A son and his dad enjoy a snowy day sledding. The words, rhythm, and feel of the story are straight-forward and perfect for preschool listeners. The author includes a note to describe the structure of the story-poem, called a chiasmus. This would be a great poetry form to use with elementary school students. With varying amounts of support, recommended as a model for writing in grades 2 - 5.

    • Kim says:

      At first glace this just appears to be a whimsical preschool book. But when the reader gets to the author's note you become aware of the purposeful structure of the book. This would be a great lead in to differentiation in a poetry unit.

    • Janet says:

      Minimal rhyming text that evokes the mood of a night time sled ride by father and son, including the hot chocolate and the father reading after the ride. No young child should miss this warm secure story.

    • Vicki says:

      This is a great one for winter storytimes. It's got a nice rhyme to it, but it also has a fun bit of action to it -- when the sled tips over, it's fun to have the kids yell whoa with you. Perfect length for toddler storytime, too.

    • Ariel Cummins says:

      Sweet little book that tells the story of a boy and his dad who go sledding. In terms of plot, that's pretty much it!Very bright, cartoony illustrations fit the cheerful story.Would be an excellent read-aloud for toddlers because of the sparse, rhyming text and large, bright pictures.

    • Amy Brown says:

      This winter story has nice big pictures for babies and toddlers and would be good to use for phonological awareness because of its rhyming. Here's a little taste, "Red sled. Sad lad. Sad dad. Fat hat. Knit mitt." The illustrations really add to the simple rhyming words.

    • Sandy says:

      Pretty pictures and two-word rhymes tell the story of a day in the snow. A simple, quiet read.

    • Sarah says:

      A simple poem makes up this story about a boy & dad's day sledding. Lovely watercolor illustrations in bright colors made this a winner in my Mother Goose for Walkers storytime.

    • Alice says:

      I love the pictures, I love the story, and I love that it is a great begging reader with lots of simple words that have repetitive suffixes! Fun one!!

    • Danielle Mootz says:

      Super simple story appropriate for my first grader to easily read to us.

    • Jamie says:

      Perfect rhyming story for winter or sports.

    • Tina Bartholoma says:

      "sledding, winter, told in two word rhymes"

    • MissInformation says:

      Story told entirely with rhyming pairs ex. Roam home. Snug hug. Sleepyhead abed.Interesting for Story Time? EL skill of rhyming, and very simple.

    • Nicole says:

      delightful story of forest animals' winter adventure told exclusively through onomatopoeia and expressive watercolor images.

    • Kristopher Kelly says:

      Read this while visiting my nephews during Christmas. It was cute. They were cuter.

    • Matthew says:

      I've never heard of chiasmus before, but I liked this. It seems like a relatively simple style that could be taught to students. I'd love to give that a try.

    • Rebecca says:

      My 4 year old daughter really liked the two word rhyme structure in this book. She requests a rhyme game everyday on car rides where I say a word and she says a rhyme for it.

    • Rebecca says:

      Simplistic and cute. Best for preschooler. Written as a chiasm.

    • Brittany says:

      This is a great rhyming book.

    • The Library Lady says:

      I'm ordering at least one and perhaps two more copies of this one. That should tell you something.
