Session One Show students the cover of Little Red Riding Hood Hyman,a beautifully illustrated retelling of the Grimms' version of this traditional tale. Before reading the story, ask students to talk about the title and the illustrations on the front and back covers and opposite the major title page. This invitation sets the stage for students to draw on their prior knowledge of this well-known story and to engage in inferential thinking to interpret the traits, feelings, and motives of the central characters, based on clues in these pictures. As the story unfolds, ask students to continue to talk about the textual and visual portrayal of each character in this story:
Once upon a time, there was a little girl.
Her grandmother gave her a red riding hood, and the girl loves it so much she wears it all the time. So everybody started to call her Little Red Riding Hood. One day mother told the girl her grandmother fell ill. Because she lived alone deep in the wood, she would probably be happy to get some food.
Then mother gave a basket with food and a bottle of wine to Little Red Riding Hood and told her: After a while, she met a wolf in the wood. He asked her where she was going and she told him about her granny's bad health and where she lives.
Wolf tricked her to stop and pick some flowers. She did that and in the meantime, the wolf ran to the granny's house. Then he dressed in her nightgown and waited for Little Red Riding Hood.
When she came in, the famous dialogue about great arms, great ears, and great teeth followed.
After that the wolf ate the girl and took a nap. Soon after a huntsman came by the house and heard snoring. He entered cautiously, saw the sleeping monster in granny's bed and guessed what happened. Then he opened sleeping wolf's stomach with a knife.
Granny and Red Riding Hood came out and helped the huntsman to fill wolf's stomach with stones. When the wolf woke up, he tried to run away, but stones were too heavy. He fell; down and died. Grandmother, granddaughter, and huntsman lived happily ever after.
Illustrated by Arpad Schmidhammer Warning: This is the most popular version of this fairy tale in the world, but many parents still don't think it is appropriate for the today's children. It is pretty cruel indeed and a certain percent of kids can have nightmares after hearing or reading this version.
The main difference is an absence of the hunter. When the wolf eats the girl, Perrault's story ends. We only read a conclusion in verse saying not to trust strangers. Well, this is not all. I will present only a few differences. Some may be negligible at first sight, but if we take a few moments to think them over, we'll notice every single detail can make a huge difference.
In the beginning, of Perrault's story mother gives a daughter a basket and send her to a grandmother with words: Messages of both fairy tales differ.
Perrault warns us not to trust strangers and brothers Grimm emphasize how important is to stay on the trail. The content of the basket is not the same in both cases.
Psychoanalysts were especially excited over a bottle of wine added by William Grimm. It supposes to have strong symbolic meaning and we will deal with that view later.
Perrault's Red Riding Hood takes her clothes off and gets into bed with the wolf.
This version is not appropriate for kids and it really never was intended for a young audience. Grimm's Red Cap doesn't do that. She just approaches the wolf and gets eaten.
