Five Stars

The story is cute and very well conceived, but Melissa Sweet’s illustrations make the book.

Red Should Be Read

What fun to read! I shared it with my 9th graders and they enjoyed it just as much as 2nd graders would. “Red” has the talent to teach tips on writing in ways a lecture would never work. And who doesn’t like to write or read parodies about fairy tales?

You’ll never look at pencils the same way again!

So clever you have to read it a few times so you don’t miss anything! Use it in your writing class to teach voice! Kids love to be read to and this book is fun to share out loud!

Cute book!

Clever title. I got it for myself since I enjoy well-illustrated children’s books.I thought I would read it to my preschool grandchild but probably not. This one seems a little overwhelming and not one that you could easily read to a toddler. More for an older child who can read and look at it by his or herself. Fun book.

Love this story

I like “take offs” of original stories, and this is PERFECT!! While encouraging writing to the “little red riding hood” theme, it’s a perfect match for young learners who are learning to journal or use a writers notebook!!

Amazing new book

My daughter loves this book, learned some new words, and was even inspired by it to start writing more. She already writes, but I think she likes that “Red” is a brave girl pencil.

This is the cutest book I’ve ever found to introduce writing to kindergarten students. They absolutely loved it and I’d recommend it to any kindergarten teacher around.

Creative story – one that any English-lover will enjoy! Holub gets specific with her parts of speech, so be aware prior to purchasing! (It was a feature I personally enjoyed.)
