Little Red Rhyming Hood
A little girl speaks everything in rhyme. It isn’t something she tries to do; it is just the way everything comes out of her mouth. Big Brad Wolf gives her a terrible time about it. Her grandmother, trying to cheer her up, makes her a red hoodie she wears everywhere. Every day she goes to her grandmother’s house, and Grandmother tells her about a poetry contest. Little Red practices each day while she is walking, and she doesn’t hear Big Brad Wolf sneak up on her. He jumps out to scare Little Red, and something happens that changes everything for both of them.
