    Writers need the right tools in order to build a story. In this book, Nancy Loewen explores which tools are used in writing fairy tales. She builds a list of thirteen different tools or characteristics found in common with most fairy tales. These tools include: settings, characters, plot, dialogue, warnings, magic, greed, tricks, secrets, repetition, mistakes, problem solving, and a pleasing ending.

These tools include: settings, characters, plot, dialogue, warnings, magic, greed, tricks, secrets, repetition, mistakes, problem solving, and a pleasing ending. Throughout the book, the author writes part of the story of Little Red Riding Hood and pairs each section with different tools. She then writes an explanation of how the tools are used in the fairy tale. I thought that this book was awesome! It did a great job of not only describing the different characteristics of a fairy tale, but also showing the reader how it is used by giving examples from Little Red Riding Hood. This would be a perfect book for a fairy tale unit. I think that this would be great to not only teach the students different characteristics of fairy tales, but also this would be a great resource to help students write their own fairy tales. This book could be used to teach students how to write fairy tales which could then become a performance task.

    A picture book guide to writing a fairy tale story teaching parts of a story with examples from Little Red Riding Hood. This is a good intro to parts of a story in general, but I found it lacked something in writing fairy tales specifically. If you followed the formula here, you'd really just get a fantasy story not necessarily a fairy tale. Anyway, if you're teaching kids how to write a story or identify aspects of a story, this may be helpful.

What other versions of this story are you familiar with I have only really heard one version of this story but in class when we went through this book some of my classmates said there was a different version of this book. 3. Would you use this story for storytelling to a child/group? Why or why not? No, I would not because the end of this fairy tale is scary. I would not want to scare any children with this book and do not want them to be afraid that a wolf is going to eat them.

    This is a wonderful book! As I read through this book, I loved how the author incorporated tips and tools for the reader throughout the story. I also loved how the book had a glossary and an index. This book would be a great tool in a classroom when presenting texts to students, along with teaching students about fairytales. The book is written with the intent of teaching the reader to write his or her very own fairytale. I loved the creativity that was behind the text of this book! I highly rec This is a wonderful book!

    I read this to Hazel and she was not a fan. Her rating was not as good as mine. ha ha I think maybe older kids might like it better, especially if they have interests in writing.

    This book is great for introducing writing and the art of storytelling. It breaks down the story and explains 13 story elements very well. Highly recommended for elementary school.

    Fun concept for presenting how to write a story in general, and fairy tales in particular. Alongside a telling of Little Red Riding Hood, sidebars explain the components of a story: character, plot, repetition and The Pleasing End. Also includes a review of the concepts on a single spread, and exercise ideas to put them to work. There are writing tips, a glosssary, recommended related books, and an index- making it a great introduction to writing and how to use a non-fiction reference.

    In this book we learn about the all time favorite fairytale called "Little Red Riding Hood." This is a "WOW" book for me because it teaches students how to create a fairytale on their own. This text is part of the Writer's Toolbox for this company. On each page there are talking points for the teacher to use while reading the text. I think its a great text to help teachers learn more about fairytales and how to teach them to their students.

    Honestly trying to think of a way to use this for Fairy Tale Day at the library. Great simple story and writing instructions, but the age group might be misleading. Possibly an older elementary group.
