Featured Book: “Red and Lulu”

Book cover for "Red and Lulu"

With its beautiful illustrations, Matt Tavares, tells the tale of Red and Lulu, two cardinals whose happy home is in a beautiful evergreen in the front yard of a little house…but not for long. While Red searches for food, the tree is cut down and taken to a new lively location, with Red on the search for his Lulu. This story, in part wordless, provides the movement and point of view of Red that really helps you connect and hope.
