Little Red Riding Hood

January's folktale celebration wouldn't be complete without an enthusiastic reading of Little Red Riding Hood.

Like almost all folktales, there are many variations of Little Red Riding Hood to enjoy.  You might read Ed Young's Lon Po Po which is a Chinese version of the story.   Or, you could try Niki Daly's Pretty Salma, a version that is set in Africa.

But if you prefer a more modern tale -- told from the wolf's point of view -- we recomend Honestly, Red Riding Hood was Rotten! by Trisha Shaskan.
