This book is a re-imagination of the classic story of Little Red Riding Hood. Federico and the Wolf is about a latino boy who goes to the market to buy ingredients to make pico with his abuelo. But, Rico runs into a sneaky wolf along the way who tries to eat him!
This story is suited for preschoolers, kindergarteners, and lower elementary students. This book also features Spanish terminology throughout the story, which can help with listening or reading comprehension for primary Spanish speakers, make the book more relatable for Spanish speaking or latino children, and increase exposure to other languages and cultures for non-hispanic children.
I like to watch the read aloud of this story on YouTube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQax__Ft9gU
