My Red Hat

Written and Illustrated by Rachel Stubbs

This is a great book to stir your imagination and make you think of the people you love. The myriad possibilities that are imagined with a red hat are inspiring. The pictures appropriately have a red theme. I love the page that shows that this hat holds dreams and so many others. Get ready to let your imagination soar with new ideas planted by this book.

I think this would be a great book to read with a class and have them use as a writing prompt. “Think of something you love that has a lot of meaning to you, like this red hat is for these characters. Now, imagine that it has more uses than just the obvious ones and write about the fun new ways you can use it or describe it.” It is also a good read aloud just for fun.
