In this book children will follow Little Red Riding Hood and her mother as they plan a birthday party. Creating the list of guests, writing the invitations, looking for addresses in an address book, addressing the envelopes, making a shopping list, and following some simple recipes all will contribute to see the many ways in which language is present in daily life.
I have, and I have had many friends in life, but the characters in these books were my first and most loyal friends throughout my life. I realize that I was a very sensitive little girl, shy, chubby, and silent. So my books and the characters in them, became a soft and secure place where I could return anytime I wanted.
Later in elementary school I fell in love with theatre and my character was transformed. I gave my opinion when asked, (or not) I spoke my mind, and I realized that the lessons learned with Piggy, Red Riding Hood, and Pérez the Mouse were helpful, and worth being remembered.
These books are a manifestation of that promise, with the hope that the new generations will also learn to love each and everyone of these characters.
