Read in January, 2011

I LOVED this very clever ABC/Little Red Riding Hood tale. It's a great read-aloud for all ages from PK-middle school. For the older kids, you could focus more on the interesting vocablulary & the subtle nuances included in the text and illustrations. Younger kids enjoy a breifer version of the story, relating to the "familiar" Little Red Riding Hood story-line. Although accurate, labeling this a ABC/Little Red Riding Hood story really doesn't do it justice. You really have to read it to appreciate the brillance that Sweet conveys.
