Book review – Little Red Riding Hood by Nick Sharratt and Stephen Tucker

 9780333962176 A lively, up to date retelling of an old favourite with lift the flap excitement (what really WAS in the basket for Granny?) on each page to encourage independent, interactive reading. 

All set in a simple rhyme, which encourages early phonics awareness and repetition. Lovely, clear, colourful illustrations make this book eye-catching and easy to talk about with your child.

If you like this one, ask at your library for the others in the series.

Find or reserve a copy of Little Red Riding Hood.

On Tuesday, a Bookstart Fairy Tale party,  is happening at Crownhill Library, on Wednesday, a Baby Clinic and Fairy Tales Rhymetime will take place at Plympton Library and on Thursday at North Prospect Library, there will be a musical Fairy Tale themed Rhymetime/Storytime.

Even more events will take place at other libraries across the city, usually at the regular Rhymetime or Storytime times. All the dates and times are on our website.
