    One thought on “And Red Galoshes: A Story About a Rainy Day”

    1. Beautiful, creative, and poetic. With no preamble the beginning starts off rather abruptly, causing some disorientation, but once it gets going it flows in what is not so much a narrative, as an experience. No words are wasted in creating this simple poem about two children, a dog, and a pair of red galoshes. Alliteration, onomatopoeia, rhyme, and imagery help to make each sentence full of meaningful impact.In almost all the images the galoshes are not used in the traditional sense, they are not [...]

    2. I pulled this from the new shelves because it immediately made me think of Jess and Cheri Kay. Different, but interesting. I liked seeing the children playing with the red galoshes in all sorts of way. And it makes rainy days look fun (because they are when you know how to truly enjoy them--and use your imagination). Illustrations were fun. Not sure if I'd use this in a storytime, but it has a place somewhere.9/11/13 Went well with the red theme I planned. Not a huge "bang" to end with, but the [...]

    3. A rhyme and repetition rainy day book with sweet illustrations. The story itself flows well, but I found myself reading it "and the red galoshes" rather than "and red galoshes", for me it just needed that extra syllable to flow properly. The illustrations' muted color palette makes the red galoshes pop right off each page and the whimsical scenes will bring many a smile to your face. I loved that the children were barefoot throughout the book and enjoyed all the creative things they did with the [...]

    4. And Red Galoshes by Glenda MillardLittle Hare Press China 2011PreK-KVerdict: This is an excellent book to borrow repeatedly from the library. And Red Galoshes is an excellent picture book by Glenda Millard. The book follows the adventure a pair of red galoshes has on a rainy day. Two children play and bring the galoshes that have a special connection with someone important, everywhere. This would make a great book to borrow repeatedly from the library in preparation for rainy days.

    5. My story time theme was about boots. I read this picture book, but wasn't excited about it. It's very imaginative, but I'm not sure that my tiny tots who attend story time would grasp the creative concepts. The illustrations are soft and adorable, so it's a beautiful book to share. I would recommend an early elementary audience for this picture book.Reviewed from a library copy.

    6. Short, poetic story about a girl and a boy sharing a rainy day. Titled for the refrain, this book celebrates a child's imagination through the use of rhythm, rhyme, repetition and coloured line drawings that exude innocence.2011 through Little Hare Books (Hardy Grant Egmont)

    7. The illustrations drew me in. The story was pretty laid-back, mostly a list of rainy day activities this young girl and boy enjoyed throughout the day. The refrain of "and red galoshes" at the end of each fun activity was fun in storytime, but a little awkward.

    8. Lovely illustrations, flowing languaged red galoshes. And I have to admit I didn't quite get it. Why are the galoshes floating? Why is one filled with peanut butter? I guess I wasn't given enough reason to suspend disbelief.

    9. Whimsical illustrations that were my favorite part of this book. They flowed along with the story and perfectly blended the words with the imagery. I especially liked the ending of whom the red galoshes belonged to and how it fit in with all of the adventures of the two children. A sweet story.

    10. A dreamy weather poem with a fun potentially interactive refrain. Plus, the grandma is delightfully hippy dippy in appearance.

    11. A simple early reader children's book with clever illustrations. I really enjoyed the addition of the little dog.

    12. Very repetitive, not sure that it's really works all that well. "and red galoshes" at the end of almost every page.

    13. A simple day of enjoying the pleasures of rain and imagination and the red galoshes are in every illustration.
