Little Red Riding Sheep Reviews

    I loved it, EXCEPT for the part where the sheep is referred to as "plump" and has the illustrator re-draw him. Seriously, does everyone in any book ever have to feel like they are "fat" and want to be "thin"? This message is so pervasive and so unhealthy for kids.

    Lodding, Linda Little Red Riding Sheep, PICTURE BOOK. Antheneum (Simon), 2017. $18. The narrator/author is trying to tell the traditional story of little red riding hood when there is an interruption –Arnold the sheep is pretty insistent that he be Little Red. Then he has a lot of other ideas- who should play what character (he is terrified of real hungry wolves and has a suggestion for who the wolf could be played by instead), how the setting could be better (because he is scared of the deep dark woods too). Arnold even asks for changes from the illustrator. I will immediately incorporate this book into my K-1 lessons on character (which I nicely place after those on author and illustrator and this acts as a review of those)! I think readers will love that the character is interacting with the author and being funny (one epic barf scene) and creative. For upper elementary it could be used for a lesson on twisted or fractured fairy tales. For example: imagine ‘harry potter’ (or alt character) was the character of ‘jack’ in jack and the beanstalk (or alt.story) -what would he do the same/different, how would it change the story? This would get them thinking more deeply about characters and how they might react to situations outside of their own story. It could be used for a quick read aloud as part of a lesson for even high school readers on MetaFiction.EL(K-3), EL –ESSENTIAL.

    A metafictional, fractured fairy tale featuring a quite eager young sheep named Arnold.a

    Fractured fairy tales have always been very popular with my students, and I'm sure this one will be a big hit as well! Arnold is a sheep that desperately wants to be a part of this Little Red Riding Hood story. Once the author agrees, he becomes very demanding and wants to make all sorts of changes to the book. Young readers will have a lot of fun seeing all the changes Arnold wants to make. This could be a great mentor text for kids trying to make fun and creative changes to their own favorite fairy tales. The digital illustrations are bold, bright, and hilarious! This book would be awesome to have in any classroom library.

    This is a really cute fractured fairy tale about a sheep who puts himself into an authors story about Little Red Riding Hood. The author and Arnold the sheep have a conversation throughout the story and Arnold is able to convince the author to include some of his other friends into the story. Kids will like this story.

    A modern twist on Little Red Riding Hood involves a sheep named Arnold telling the author how to improve the story. I'm sure kids will get a kick out of these humorous and demanding characters. I think Nesbit's More Bears or Chloe and the Lion are better choices for read alouds in which the characters interact with the author.

    Really adorable. Love the meta-fiction aspect. Great for a retold fairy tales or sheep storytime.If you like this book try Chester by Melanie Watt. It’s about an author who is writing a book about a mouse but her cat Chester keeps rewriting it. Very fun.

    We love retellings. This one was brought to my attention by my boss. I couldn't stop giggling and had to take it right home to X. We buddy read it several times. Hoping that she decides to rewrite other classics.

    Oh, this is a good fractured fairy tale! First make sure your kiddos are familiar with Red Riding Hood. Then dig right in! Hysterically funny back and forth between the author, I mean Eugene, and the sheep - aka Red Riding Hood. Laughed out loud right in the car dealership...

    Fractured fairy tales are always the best. Loved! Made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion! Any book that can do that, hands down, is a good book.

    A sheep wants to be in a story but isn’t thrilled that the story being read has a wolf and a scary woods. The sheep gets his friends involved too.

    To be read with a friend; one part narrator, and one as the sheep. It’s the only way, really. :-)

    Very silly meta-retelling of Little Red. I'm sure this would be a hit for classrooms.

    2017 - ClassicA cute spin off on the story of Red Riding Hood with an overzealous sheep who has tons of ideas to change the story as the author writes it. The author reluctantly agrees to make the changes. This would be a cute read aloud in the primary grades.
