Title = Little Red riding Hood


Author = Rebecca Heller
Illustrator = Marsha Winborn
ISBN # = 0-307-11633-6

Description:
This is a classic retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. This version
stays true to the original tale. Little Red goes into the woods to bring
treats to her grandmother. She runs into a wolf. The wolf ends up eating
Little Red and her grandmother. They are saved by a passing woodsman.
Recommendation:
No, I would not use this book as a womens book. This story is riddled
with gender stereotypes and has no cultural or racial diversity.

A young boy is headed to bed when he sees his mom in her Air-Force
issued flight suit. He asks his mother about all of the colorful patches on
her suit. She takes the time to tell him about each patch as he asks. By
taking the time she explains to him why women like her serve in uniform

Yes! I would recommend this book because it shows a young boy looking
up to a women, I saw mainly books with a young girl looking up to an

older women. This also proves to girls that they are brave and strong and
can do anything they want to do.
