Once upon a fine morning, a little shed awakens to discover she isn’t quite the same as she used to be. Uncertain and feeling as if she no longer fits in, she decides to leave home and sets out to sea. All alone on the wide, wide ocean, she meets an extraordinary new friend who sees how special she really is, and with newfound confidence, the little red shed returns home and inspires everyone to cherish their differences.

Editorial Reviews

"In The Little Red Shed, by Adam Young and Jennifer Young, a shed goes on a journey (really!) and comes home to realize just how important it is to cherish what makes us different."

— 49th Shelf

"This is a wonderful book with a positive message of celebrating who you are. We are all made different and unique. Together we weave a diverse tapestry where everything and everyone is a thread. All need to feel accepted and included to make the glorious cloth complete. The Little Red Shed is an inspirational story that encourages everyone to applaud their individuality. I highly recommend this book!"

— Storywraps

“From worry and despair through compassion and hope and finally self-appreciation and diversity, The Little Red Shed offers a lesson for young children to accept themselves as they are, not as others decide they should be... Adam and Jennifer Young make sure the text is minimal, enough to carry a story, choosing words that are absolute in their power and naturalness... The voice of the story is ideal for young children, helping them understand that differences are not a curse but a gift… With Adam Young's bold and colourful art, the story is carried from the darkness and despair of stormy blues through the hope of green and ending with the vibrancy of the rainbow of sheds and water and landscape. There is so much movement and emotion in Adam Young's illustrations that the story of the little red shed becomes an odyssey of self-discovery and colour that every reader can and will appreciate.”
