Red Wagon by Renata Liwska - ADVISABLE

Liwska, Renata Red Wagon Philomel, 2011. $6.99 BOARD BOOK  Content: G. 
Lucy, a fox, has a new red wagon that she can’t wait to try out, so her mother sends her to the market.  While walking to the market she meets up with some of her other forest friends and they trudge through imagined horrible weather to get to the market.  At the market Lucy gets her mother’s vegetables and then heads back home.  While on her way home she imagines her wagon to be a train, a spaceship and a construction truck.  When she delivers the vegetables to her mom she is excited to finally be able to play with her wagon the way she wants, but falls asleep in it because she is so exhausted. 
This is a great story about using your imagination to do chores.  The illustrations are adorable and simple.  There is humor throughout that will keep young readers interested. 
PREK-ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
