    One thought on “Red Knit Cap Girl”

    1. 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. (view spoiler)[ I wasn’t too crazy about the moon’s greeting. A bit high and mighty.(hide spoiler)]Still a b [...]

    2. 5 STARS illustrations3 STARS storyIn this odd, but somewhat charming, story, little Red Knit Cap Girl (is she a little girl, or perhaps some sort of wood sprite or elf?) wants to talk to the moon. 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 homesp [...]

    3. 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! Hmmm. The wise old owl as a device, and his reappearance under the word 'suddenl [...]

    4. 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 2012 - Warm Quilts and Soft [...]

    5. 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.

    6. Review originally posted on Heise Reads & RecommendsRED KNIT CAP GIRL is a charming picture book with a quiet story and beautiful artwork of the forest and animals and sunset and night sky. 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 th [...]

    7. Red Knit Cap Girl by Naoko Stoop came out this week and has grade A illustrations. 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 [...]

    8. 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 Special peaceful book. Perfect book for showing how curiosity can be explored in many ways.

    9. 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 but I liked the message and my children also enjoyed the story.

    10. 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. The author/illustrator was inspired by Earth Hour, when people turn off their lights for an hour. Great story time accompaniment to Kitten's First Full Moon or any of the moon books by Frank Asch.

    11. 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.

    12. 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.

    13. 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. According to the book jacket, the author was “inspired to create this story after participating in Earth Hour, an event that encourages people [...]

    14. I really enjoyed the illustrations for this book, which were acrylics and ink on plywood. You can see the wood texture on the pages, so it's very cool and effective for the woodland/forest setting. 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.

    15. Interesting book. I liked the idea of a girl who's trying to get to the moon. Really liked the illustrations of her because they were so different and didn't contain as much details as most books.

    16. These books (there are three: Red Knit Cap Girl, Red Knit Cap Girl & The Reading Tree and Red Knit Cap Girl to The Rescue. They are ALL wonderful!! The illustrations are gorgeous!!

    17. RED KNIT CAP GIRL is a lovely book with gentle artwork that features soft-but-rich backgrounds against which RKCGirl and her little white bunny are easy to pick out. These are the sort of simple drawings that young children enjoy, and which appeal to adults to the extent that I wouldn't be at all surprised to find Red Knit Cap Girl calendars for sale in the future.**SPOILER ALERT** gonna talk about the plot**The story was inspired by a community 'lights out' event. If you've ever participated in [...]

    18. Red Knit Cap Girl by Naoko Stoop tells of the girl's quest to get close enough to talk to the moon.Stoop's illustrations were done in acrylic, ink and pencil on plywood. The wood grain is incorporated into each one or two page illustration. The very stylized characters include Red Knit Cap Girl, White Bunny, Hedgehog, Owl, Bear, Squirrel, birds and the Moon. My favorite images are flowers & clouds, bunny and branch, lying watching moon, no answer, her friends, they talk, they sing, Blow, and [...]

    19. I fell in love with the art first, then I got to enjoy the story.It has a whimsical but also calming and relaxing effect on me that I don't remember feeling from a picture book before.It comes off straight forward and yet isn't so straight forward when you stop to think about it.My daughter enjoyed it too but not as much as I did. I think her favorite part is saying the author's name.I really don't want to return this back to the library, but I have to.

    20. If there's only one children's picture book you pick up this year, this is the one to get! Naoko's beautiful illustrations and heartwarming story capture the heart of imagination for those both young and old. It's a lovely story about friendship, adventure, and captures the essence of childhood perfectly. Red Knit Cap Girl and her woodland friends want to meet the moon. How does one go about doing that? You'll have to jump into this story's delightful world and take the journey with Red Knit Cap [...]

    21. Red Knit Cap Girl wants to talk to the moon. But she isn’t sure how to do it since the moon is so far away. So she asks owl. Owl says that the moon will bend down to listen to Red Knit Cap Girl…but doesn’t explain how the moon will know Red Knit Cap Girl will want to talk to the moon. Eventually after being quiet and making it dark the moon comes down and talks to Red Knit Cap Girl (although it never says what they say to each other). And that is pretty much the end of the story.The only r [...]

    22. Full review at perogiesandgyoza/2012/This is a new twist on the old tale of someone trying to reach the moon. Little Red Knit Cap Girl gathers with her friends Hedgehog, Bunny, Bear, and Squirrel to help pass the moon a message. They start by making newspaper lanterns to attract the moon's attention. Since the author's inspiration for this book was participating in Earth Hour, you can guess how they are able to contact the moon.After reading this book my children and I took a walk to an unpopula [...]

    23. I would start with “charming story,” but what captures my attention is the medium in which Naoko Stoop illustrates Red Knit Cap Girl: Acrylic, ink, and pencil on plywood. The gradation of colors catch in the grain creating an intriguing texture. The brushwork of the moon’s face is just lovely on plywood. The lanterns are pretty sweet, too. Not every page bears a full-wash of color, but Stoop frames out a page or two, to striking effect.Red Knit Cap Girl would like to speak to the Moon and [...]

    24. Red Knit Cap Girl finds that when she is in the forest, she has time to think about all sorts of things. In particular, she thinks about the moon and how she can get close enough to speak with her. She tries reaching the moon with a branch, finding her in the reflection in the water, but nothing works. Hedgehog recommends that she find Owl and ask about how to reach the moon. So she does, and Owl tells her that there is no way to reach the moon, but she will bend down to listen. So Red Knit Cap [...]

    25. Red knit cap girl lives in an enchanted forest with her animal friends. One day she decides she wants to talk to the moon. She tries talking to its reflection. This does not work. She asks Owl for advice. He says she can figure it out herself. She decides to have a celebration in hopes that moon will come. But moon does not come until Red knit cap girl realizes they must blow out the lanterns in order to see the moon.The illustrations are incredible! They are done in acrylic, ink, and pencil on [...]

    26. The illustrations a little static, but sweet. It's the story itself that is inconsistent enough to bother me a bit. For instance, the little girl "reaches" the moon in the end by blowing out the lanterns and being quiet. But the lanterns weren't there in the beginning, when she is lying on the ground and being quiet. So why is the moon all of a sudden "closer" after they've created the lanterns and blown them out? And the final pages show them all sitting on a branch to be close to the moon, but [...]
