And Red Galoshes by Glenda Millard and Jonathan Bentley has to be one of the cutest picture books I’ve come across in awhile. Ingenious use of colour, rhyming and, surprisingly, red galoshes this is a simple, beautifully illustrated book for the very young. A quaint story of all the things you can do on a rainy day with red galoshes, usually not involving wearing them! Hardback, $24.95 …and red galoshes.
