The Little Red Stroller is a unique idea for sharing, caring, learning about community and diversity. Joshua Furst takes us on an adventure of a life time. Or at least, the life time of one special red stroller.
We first see a mother holding her young baby and off in the background, a red stroller that will take mom and baby on many adventures. Then one day, they meet another family in need of a stroller, and that now-not-so young baby, tells them to take her stroller. She is too big for it. And off it goes to start a new life with a new baby. And yes, one day another family needs a stroller, so off it goes with them, and finally several families later that poor little red stroller is on its very last wheel. But this is not a sad story, as that family gets themselves a new yellow stroller, that will find itself right back where we started.
Katy Wu has created unbelievably great illustrations. Bright and bold and happy colors and action that tells every babies story as it goes from one city to stores to Texas to farmer markets and more with its baby and mommy and daddy, or just mommy or two mommies or two daddies or just daddy. And all the different races, cultures and sizes mommies and daddies and babies, come in.
This book is a “feelings book” as it will create an emotional read. While you might not feel “all the feelings” there will be something that is left behind.
