Little Roja Riding Hood

bc_rojaWe needed a modernized version of the classic fairy tale, and Little Roja Riding Hood is a funny, bilingual take. Even non-Spanish speakers will love the text, because all of the Spanish words are worked expertly into the rhyming text (a bonus to help with pronunciation). A glossary is provided, also.

As for the story, no woodcutter is needed to save the day: Abeula and Roja can take care of Wolf, and at the end, they install a security system to prevent the fiasco from happening again.

Written by Susan Middleton Elya and illustrated by Susan Guevara.
