All Lucy wants to do is play with her brand-new, bright red wagon. But her mother has other plans for her-and the wagon. Lucy must go to the market and buy vegetables for dinner. Lucy doesn’t want to do chores! But she sets off for the market nonetheless, hauling her red wagon with her. Before long, her ordinary trip becomes a high-seas adventure, a ride through outer space, and a day at the circus. As long as she has her red wagon, not even chores can get in the way of Lucy’s fun.
New York Times bestseller Renata Liwska’s most vibrant art ever takes center stage in this imaginative book for the youngest of readers.
Red Wagon is such a fun and adorable book. The actual story is very simple, Lucy gets a new wagon and uses it to go to the market for her mother. What was a unwanted chore soon turns into a big adventure all thanks to their vivid imagination.
What mom likes:
I love, love, love the illustrations. The are absolutely gorgeous. Each little animal is adorable and has so much personality.
What Finn likes:
Finn really took a liking to this book a couple of months ago. He must like looking at all the vivid pictures, and I don’t blame him. He really loves the scene where the wagon is a train. He happily says ‘choo choo’ as soon as we get to that page every time.
Red Wagon by Renata Liwska is a delightful picture book. We love getting swept up in Lucy’s adventure.
