It will bring up a lot of discussion with kids. Highly recommended for Grades K May 14, Beth Wozencraft rated it really liked it Shelves: The girl is tasked with delivering her sick grandma food and must journey through the dark woods. While in the dark woods she makes friends with a wolf who beats her to her grandma's house. When the girl arrives the wolf pretends to be her grandma. This all seemed pretty typical of the Little Red Riding Hood story to me. However, I found that it got a little more morbid than I'm used to. For this reason I gave the book one less star. I just found it sort of harsh at the end.
One thing I did really like about this specific take were the illustrations. The illustrations were vibrant and cartoonish, which I though made the book more appealing especially for children. This book could be used in elementary classrooms while students are learning about fairy tales. I think this would be an interesting book to write an alternative ending for.
What would happen if the grandma fought back? May 14, Arhely rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a picture book that was written and illustrated by James Marshall. He said This is a picture book that was written and illustrated by James Marshall. The book is illustrated with boldly cartoon style watercolors. The illustrations contain black thin and tight lines. There is a combination of different lines that create shapes. There is texture and composition that create balance. This book is recommended for young readers and elementary school children.
Teachers can use it as read-out-loud. May 15, Roger Clarke rated it liked it. This retelling of the classic tale of Red Riding Hood does a good job of presenting the story without any new bells and whistles. The story follow the girl in the red hood who is supposed to bring her ill grandma some treats. Like most picture books, the illustrations do a great job filling in the gaps of what is happening in the story. Also, the pictures do a great job making the story of an mischievous wolf more light-hearted and fun for the intended audience children.
Perhaps one of the les This retelling of the classic tale of Red Riding Hood does a good job of presenting the story without any new bells and whistles. Perhaps one of the lessons for children from the story is not to trust strangers and to do what your parents tell you, as we notice that her mother warned her to hurry and not speak to any strangers. The final page is funny, showing another predatory animal trying to con Red Riding Hood into following her again.
This was a fun retelling of a classic folktale with good illustrations to make this a good picture book to recommend. Nov 20, Shelby Hayes rated it liked it Shelves: Little red riding hood goes to give her grandmother dessert because she is sick. On the way she meets a wolf who ends up going ahead of her to her grandmothers house. He ends up eating the grandmother and pretends to be her when little red riding hood gets there. He ends up eating the girl as well, at which time a hunter comes by and kills him and opens him up and lets out little red riding hood and grandma. This book was a comical version of the typical Little Red Riding Hood story.
Instead of the wolf eating the girl and pretending to be her, it is opposite with him going to the grandmother's house first. This book was also used in the endings unit to show a lesson-learned ending. The girl learned not to talk to strangers and followed that advice at the end when a gator tried talking to her.
