Lists with This Book. Oct 10, Miriam rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm not sure why this title was chosen or even why her cap is important: Her cap doesn't seem important. But anyway, a nice book. I like the art, especially the use of planking as a background with the grain showing through the delicate color washes. Abigail I met Naoko Stoop at one of our many events - she is a lovely person, as well as a talented artist. I definitely appreciate the textured feeling that I met Naoko Stoop at one of our many events - she is a lovely person, as well as a talented artist.
I definitely appreciate the textured feeling that comes from the fact that she paints on wood. I also love the wood grain background! Jan 30, Laura rated it liked it Shelves: The look of Red Knit Cap Girl lured me in from across the room. An original, delicate, adorable style that introduces readers to a girl and her cute-as-a-button bunny sidekick as they try to find a way to meet the moon.
With a little help from her friends perhaps red knit cap girl can reach her dream. Very cute tale filled with creativity, but something felt off about the ending to me. A bit high and mighty. Glowing oranges, soft greens and browns bring this adventure to life in such a warm, natural way. A book sure to inspire sweet dreams.
Dec 13, Kathryn rated it really liked it Shelves: Her forest friends help her in her quest to attract the moon's attention, but things don't go quite as planned. I really love the illustrations! Red Knit Cap Girl is so adorable she reminds me so much of these little fairy dolls I used to see growing up, they had little felt caps and seemed very homespun. The style and colors of the forest and the woodland creatures really appealed to me. And I was very happy to see a hedgehog among her friends!!!
The story itself perplexed me just a bit, though. On the one hand, I thought it was very sweet of the girl and her friends to try to create something that the moon would like, and I'm not sure I really liked how that was received. On the other hand, the message was nice in terms of how to be quiet and peaceful and look for the moon. I think that point made more sense to me when I read the Author's Note about where she got inspiration for the story.
But, it all felt just a bit disjointed to me. Feb 04, Jim Erekson rated it liked it Shelves: Charming illustrations on plywood, with color and composition the strong features throughout the whole book. My own children love this spare style, harking to both Japanese and Scandinavian illustration. Consistent choices in design typeface and composition by Saho Fujii and Neil Swaab. I tried to find the Aram Caps title font online, but it's only in the pay sets.
Points for the professionals using the toolkit! The wise old owl as a device, and his reappearance under the word 'suddenl Charming illustrations on plywood, with color and composition the strong features throughout the whole book. The wise old owl as a device, and his reappearance under the word 'suddenly'? Is a deus ex machina needed in this story? Also it felt odd that the forest group had created the distracting light mid-story, but the problem was set up before these lights were even there.
All this, of course, helped deconstruct the back-to-nature message. This is conflicting, because I like the message--but I'm always pleased when a moral message in a picture book unravels so quickly. Things became clearer when I read the author blurb on the end flap, and realized how Naoko Stoop was reworking an autobiographical moment. Nov 19, Dolly rated it liked it Recommends it for: Gorgeous illustrations are the highlight of this strange and unfortunately forgettable story.
The narrative just seems to lack any pizazz and the little girl is not overly distinctive or memorable. Did I mention that the illustrations were great? I was a bit disappointed by this story because I expected to really like it. We enjoyed reading this book together, but it just wasn't a great read in our opinion. This story was selected as one of the books for the December - Warm Quilts and Soft Gorgeous illustrations are the highlight of this strange and unfortunately forgettable story.
Dec 20, Donalyn rated it really liked it Shelves: I want to be Red Knit Cap Girl and live in an enchanted forest with my animal friends. Stunning illustrations and a sweet, simple story. Feb 07, Jennifer rated it liked it. Sep 07, Laura rated it liked it Shelves: Sweet illustrations but I felt as though the plot and resolution were weak. Apr 04, Jillian Heise rated it really liked it Shelves: Red Knit Cap Girl is a great example of a curious little girl who is determined to do what she can to find out what she wants to know - and what she wants to know, is how to reach the moon in order to talk to her.
When she can't figure it out on her own, she takes advice from the forest animals to find the wise owl who knows everything. Owl lets Red Knit Cap Girl know that the moon will listen if she knows someone is waiting for her. All of the forest animals come together to help Red Knit Cap Girl figure out a plan to let the moon know they are waiting for her. I appreciated the spirit of community and helpfulness and coming together that was shown through Hedgehog, Bear, Squirrel, and White Bunny as they helped Red Knit Cap Girl in her plan to celebrate the moon so she comes close enough to talk to.
When the plan doesn't at first work, Red Knit Cap Girl figures out why and what is wrong, and remedies the situation. Ultimately it's a story full of hope and wishfulness brought to life at the end when realizing that the moon will always be there, and can be seen when it is dark and quiet.
I will definitely use this one in my classroom to share with my students. Jun 08, Jennifer Haight rated it really liked it. Its about an adorable girl in a red hat and coat dreams of touching the moon. She attempts to reach it by herself and then asks her forest friends for help.
She learns that if she turns off her light and quiets her world, she'll be able to see and hear the moon. It is a quiet and soft book with each character influencing the soft action. I attempted reading the book aloud and found that saying Red Knit Cap Girl is a bit of a tongue twister.
It doesn't roll off of the tongue and clunks up the otherwise smooth flow of the story which reads like a parable. Back to the illustrations they are iconic. There is a cool, soothing darkness to the drawings as we journey through the forest. A unique facet of the illustrations is that they appear to be painted onto a faint wood grain which adds to the feeling of comfort that the book provides. This is a pleasant picture book for young children and would make for a lovely tuck-in tale.
Jun 25, The Styling Librarian rated it really liked it Shelves: Peaceful forest book with Red Knit Cap Girl that is beautiful with the main character Red Knit Cap Girl name repeated throughout the book and I stumbled over it each time, not sure why wanting to talk with the moon Perfect book for showing how curiosity can be explored in many ways. Dec 01, Jenny rated it liked it Shelves: Red Knit Cap Girl wants to speak with the moon.
The owl tells her she will figure out a way. She gets her forest animal friends to help her. The illustrations are nicely done and I liked the story. It did feel a little cumbersome to me to read her name "Red Knit Cap Girl" over and over Aug 18, Amy rated it really liked it Shelves: Red Knit Cap Girl loves nature. She wants to talk to the moon, so she and her forest friends create a quiet nighttime celebration to draw the moon out.
I found the art to be more interesting than the story. The starry sky endpapers were probably my favorite part, but the titular character's rabbit friend was a nice allusion to the moon rabbit. Jul 01, Elisabeth rated it it was amazing. Starts with the line "In the forest, there is time to wonder about everything" and continues on a peaceful, thoughtful, beautiful path.
I liked learning that the author was inspired by "Earth Hour", an event that encourages people to turn off the lights for an hour. Feb 23, Jana rated it really liked it Shelves: This lovely picture book tells the story of a little girl and her animal friends who are on a mission to talk to the moon. But the moon is so very far away, it seems to be completely out of reach. Through the course of the story, which is wonderfully illustrated on plywood, the girl and her friends learn an important lesson about looking and listening.
Turning off the lights allowed me to sit quietly and appreciate the beautiful natural world and sky around me, beyond the light and noise of the city.
Jun 19, Tatiana rated it it was ok Shelves: I really enjoyed the illustrations for this book, which were acrylics and ink on plywood. The story itself did not resonate with me. The Red Knit Cap Girl reminiscent of Little Red Riding Hood wants to meet the moon and discovers the best way to do that is to shut off all lights and sound.
I was unmoved by the end, but again, lovely artwork. Feb 11, R rated it really liked it Shelves: Cute illustrations and story.
