Does a balloon have feelings? How does a balloon decide to travel across a city? Does it have a brain? These and questions like them always follow when I watch Albert Lamorisse''s classic "The Red Balloon" with my granddaughters. They are close enough to the ground to believe in magic. They identify with Pascal for feeling the outsider as his balloon gains unwanted attention and with Sabine because of her compassion (and her balloon is blue, a favorite color in the girls'' world.)The story''s lessons of bullying and acceptance aren''t lost on my girls either and when it comes time to settle down, they often request the companion book or the film (they have both.)

With the increasing attention on bullying and what''s do be done about it, "The Red Balloon" is a powerful tool both at home and in the classroom. We could stand to have "Red Balloon" days in every school, lower to upper, which end in discussions about what bullying looks like. Perhaps if bullying is identified by everyone everywhere, we can stunt its growth once and for all.

I love this book. The move was made first, then the director came out with a book so that children could better understand what was going on. My students up to grade 2 (8 years old) love the movie, especially when I read the book first. The movie was made after WWII, so you can see the buildings that are still bombed up and bomb holes in the ground, narrow walkways, cobble stone roads, old cars and a steam engine train. I highly recommend the book and the movie, which gave hope to the French after being hugely depressed after WWII as they thought WWI would be the war to end all wars.

I learned about this book while attending an event at my grandson''s school. I read it to my granddaughter who is in second grade. She and I both enjoyed it. I found many teachable moments throughout the book, especially on the topics of bullying and acceptance. After reading the book, we watched the movie, which captivated my granddaughter. We were able to compare the film to the book. I highly recommend both.

embered the story of "THE RED BALLOON." I told her, what wonderful advatures the ballon would have, while he is flying free. Her tears stopped. I emphasized that story at Christmas with the book. She loves it. Her father reads it to her, whenever she ask for it and even he remembers the movie himself.
