Little Red Riding Hood

NEW! Not only is Little Red Riding Hood one of the all-time favourite fairy stories - with children delighting in the part of the story when the wolf disguises himself as Little Red Riding Hood's grandmother - but it is also a useful way to introduce the concept of "stranger danger" to the kids.

These days the more gruesome versions of the traditional story are frowned upon, so we've re-written the fairy tale so that Granny hides in a cupboard and the wolf runs away!

Explore our Little Red Riding Hood resources below. You'll find various versions of the story - printable, flipbook to read online, and an audio version so that you can listen and read at the same time if you like. And of course we have lovely colouring pages (older and younger) and lots of accompanying activities to print and enjoy with the kids.
