Little Red Writing
Joan Holub and illustrated by Melissa Sweet is a new picture book that I look forward to sharing with my students. Little Red's teacher, Ms. 2, gives her class of pencils a set of words and the assignment to write a story. Little Red sets out uncertain what to write about. She soon encounters a strange noise and discovers it is coming from Wolf, the pencil sharpener. If you and your children like new versions of well known fairy tales, this would be a book to look for at your library. If you teach children writing, you might also find it helpful as a springboard for a lesson on writing a good story.
