"What big ears you have!" "All the better to hear you with, my dear!"
Little Red Riding Hood is a tale of suspense and trickery with lots of thrilling twists and repetitive phrases. Both peril and humour bubble from every page, from the cunning wolf to the brave grandmother.
It's never too early to introduce children to the magic and wonder of fairy tales. Classic characters are brought to life at each turn of the page with spellbinding artwork and lyrical writing.
A visual glossary at the beginning introduces new vocabulary and promotes understanding. A lively activity at the end invites discussion and will make even the very youngest children want to return to these story books again and again. In this story they are invited to spot the differences between the scenes and name all the things in Little Red Riding Hood's basket.
Fairy tales are a vital introduction to the basics of storytelling like setting, characters and plot. They boost a child's imagination and also teach valuable life lessons about good overcoming evil, the difference between right and wrong and the importance of rising to a challenge.
