The great appeal of this book, besides its sweet and simplistic illustrations (which are sometimes comical!), is the fact that it is bilingual. On every page, the English translation of the story is on top, and the Spanish translation is on the bottom. For this reason it is appealing for use in ELL classrooms or in classrooms that include ELL students. However, it could also be a good resource in a class where students are learning to speak Spanish, as the story includes all kinds of interesting ...more
This rendition of Little Red Riding Hood is traditional, yet sets itself ahead of the mainstream style of writing. This story can be read in English, Spanish, or both. A bilingual approach to a child's reading gives this book the multicultural edge that should be followed by others.

The watercolor illustrations, although lack detail, real ...more

This is a a great multicultural story in that it simple and it is bilingual. This story is not scary as the traditional Little Red Riding Hood where the wolf eats the grandmother.

This story can be used in a writing workshop in retelling a story sequence, it also can be used in teaching about good and evil and ...more
This is the traditional version of Little Red Riding Hood. What is different about this book is that it is a bilingual book. So the story is told in both english and spanish. The illustrations are lovely but a few can be a bit scary for younger children. I enjoyed the book and it would be a great addition to anyone's classroom library. I recommend this book for children in grades 1s-8th.
