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. Minor changes have perhaps been made to this version, such as the wolf, not werewolf like traditional story telling, is not given the gruesome death as before. The watercolor illustrations, although lack detail, real ...more

This is the bi-lingual story of little red riding hood, as told by the Brothers Grimm. This is slightly different from the non-violent story of little red riding hood and does include the part where the wolf eats the grandmother and little red riding hood and the hunter cutting him open to set them free.

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

I always forget how horribly dark the Grimm fairy tales actually are - in any language.

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.
