Overview

Rare edition with unique illustrations.

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household Tales in 1812,
followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel,"
"Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world.
From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold--heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all.
A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers.
Little Red Riding Hood, or Little Red Ridinghood, also known as Little Red Cap or simply Red Riding Hood, is a European fairy tale about a young girl and a Big Bad Wolf.

About the Author

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, aka the Brothers Grimm, set out to collect stories in the early 1800s, their goal was not to entertain children but to preserve Germanic folklore. Once the brothers saw how the stories entranced young readers, however, they began softening some of the harsher aspects to make them more suitable for children. A cornerstone of Western culture since the early 1800s, Grimm’s Fairy Tales is now one of the world’s most beloved books.

The rendered scene graphics here are simple but incredibly pleasing to the eye and evokes a sense of those picture books you read as a kid.

a dear little girl who was loved by everyone who looked at her, but most of all by her grandmother, and there was nothing that she would not have given to the child.

Little Red Riding Hood is a traditional story. Little Red goes to visit her granny and bring her food and medicine. Along the way she meets the wolf and tells him where she is going. The wolf decides he wants to eat Little Red and her grandma so hurries over to Granny¿s. He eats the grandma whole and then Little Red too when she arrives. A huntsman goes to visit granny and finds the wolf. He cuts open the wolf¿s belly and out pops Little Red and Granny.I am always amazed at the violence in some traditional children¿s stories and this book is no exception. I would read other folktales or moralistic tales to the students and discuss what the moral might be.

This is the classic tale told by the Brothers Grimm. It tells of a girl who was given a red cloak by her grandmother and wore it so much, everyone called her Little Red Riding Hood. When her grandmother is sick, she takes off through the woods to go to her house and look after her. On her way she meets a wolf and explains to him where she is going. The wolf convinces her to pick flowers and, while she is doing that, goes to the grandmother's house, eats her, and puts on her clothes. The wolf devours the girl once she gets there. Then a hunter comes and cuts the two out of the wolf while he is sleeping and Little Red Riding Hood puts rocks in his stomach so when he woke up he died. I loved this story when I was growing up and I'm sure kids will still love it today. In this edition, the pictures are beautiful and compliment the story.Though this is a fun story, it would be a great opener to a lesson on safety tips. After reading the story, go over safety tips and then have the students act the story out, this time changing the story by the applying safety tips.

Little Red Riding Hood, written by the Brothers Grimm, illustrated by Ben Mahan is a story about a little girl who was sent to take goodies to her grandmother, who lived in the woods. Along the way, she meets a wolf who tricks her into straying from her path.I have read several versions of this story, but this particular story was a bit frightening. In the end, when the woodcutter cuts the wolf's stomach open and the grandmother and Little Red Riding Hood pop out, then place heavy rocks inside the wolf was too graphic for some young children. I thought the illustrations were flat, but colorful. If I read this version to my 4 year-olds, I think I would change that part of the story. I do like that in the end, Red did learn that she should listen to her mother. Extension Activity: We would make a nutritious snack for grandmother. Fruit Salad:strawberries, pineapple, pears,& bananasProvide children with one piece of each fruit. Demostrate how to hold and cut fruit into small pieces, put into bowls, and enjoy. Make sure to wash hands before beginning (children too). Discuss healthy food choices.
