Dad + lad + red sled = magic! In this warm story, a boy and his father venture outside for a winter night of sledding. Climbing aboard their red sled, they zoom down the hill under a starlit sky before—with spirits lifted high—returning home for a mug of hot chocolate. Patricia Thomas's loving story, affectionately illustrated by Chris L. Demarest, is told with utmost simplicity in rhyming pairs of words.
