The Girl and the Wolf | Katherena Vermette

This children‘s #picturebook collaboration between two talented #Canadian Métis women is absolutely wonderful. The Red Riding Hood tale is turned upside down with a wolf who is a helping spirit, gently providing encouragement to a lost girl to rescue herself. The gorgeous art, contemporary setting and the extrinsic significance of the red dress (MMIW: Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women) add power to the underlying message. #AllAges

That night she tied tobacco in red cloth and left it at the bush‘s edge. Because she didn‘t know a better way to say thank you.

I read some really great Hanukkah books today. Most of these were well done with a beautiful message and stunning illustrations. My favorite was the tagged book.

#TeamFestivus @wanderinglynn #wintergames @StayCurious @Clwojick #HolidayReads (25×20=500pts) + (8×20=160pts). One of the books had 8 short stories in it. Total=661pts🎉

My last group of Hanukkah related books. Little Red Ruthie was the hands down favourite because it follows in some ways Little Red Ridinghood, with a Hanukkah twist. My nieces loved predicting what came next and how the characters would react. Now that we‘ve finished Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah books for the season, the girls are off looking for a new series of books to read. I think I need wine!!!! #WinterGames #TheFilthyAnimals

Really, really enjoyed both of these books. I remember having latkes when I was younger and I might just make Ruthie's recipe next week!

Little Red Hood | Sarah Ardizzone, Marjolaine Leray

#DearDecember Day 14: So this one has #RedWhiteCover. I am floored by the deceptively-simple and stark nature of this picturebook that is mischievous, sparse, and subversive. This story is clearly between the Wolf and Little Red – there are no sick grandmothers or heroic woodcutters here: just Wolf preying on Little Red from the very first page of the book. An awesome fractured retelling of a beloved tale. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-fiy

Lindy I‘m a huge fan of retellings and fractured fairy tales. For some reason, I‘m particularly attracted to all the variations of Little Red Riding Hood. Nice to see Innocenti‘s version on your blog post. 😊 2mo
Eggs Fascinating and unusual 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2mo

The True Story of Little Red Riding Hood | Agnese BARUZZI, Sandro Natalini

#DearDecember Day 6: Expect a few #surprises in Baruzzi‘s pop-up retelling of this beloved fairytale. You see, Wolf had every intention of turning vegetarian – he was actually a model forest animal: bringing flowers to grandmother, driving the school bus, helping Little Red‘s Mother with the cooking – so much so, that he was even featured in the news!

Eggs How fun! 2mo

I like how the story has the overly themes of stranger danger and obeying parents, because it is a crucial thing to teach children. The book represents cultural norms that have evolved through the years where children need to be more aware of their safety.

I would read this in my classroom, because it is a classic story that supplies a very important message to children creatively.
