“My mother bought me this book in a supermarket when I was six years old and I have never forgotten it. It is about a little girl who goes back-to-school shopping and insists on buying everything red. Evidently, I am not the only one who never forgot it—it has recently been reissued by popular demand. The book’s author is a former 1st grade teacher who used limited vocabulary to create a primer for kindergartners and 1st graders. But I loved it because it is about self-determinism!” —Julianne Moore, actress
