Once upon a time there was a dear little girl who was loved by everyone who looked at her, but most of all by her grandmother, and there was nothing that she would not have given to the child. Once she gave her a little riding hood of red velvet, which suited her so well that she would never wear anything else; so she was always called 'Little Red Riding Hood.'

     One day her mother said to her: 'Come, Little Red Riding Hood, here is a piece of cake and a bottle of wine; take them to your grandmother, she is ill and weak, and they will do her good. Set out before it gets hot, and when you are going, walk nicely and quietly and do not run off the path, or you may fall and break the bottle, and then your grandmother will get nothing; and when you go into her room, don't forget to say, "Good morning", and don't peep into every corner before you do it.'

     'I will take great care,' said Little Red Riding Hood to her mother, and gave her hand on it.

Although it was originally assumed that Little Red Riding Hood’s roots went back to Asia and came to Europe via the Silk Road, this has been determined untrue . The oral version of “The Wolf and the Kids” actually originated in Europe and the Middle East and later spread to Asia  (read Dr Tehrani’s scientific analysis here). 

There is evidence that the story probably originated in the 1st Century in the Middle East. Oral versions of Little Red Riding Hood were also often told throughout Europe, especially in the French and Italian countrysides. Elements of Greek myths, Catholic saints, and Norse folktales appear in certain versions- Little Red Riding Hood is definitely inspired by many cultures! Three important version that were written down prevailed:

Pretty Salma: A Little Red Riding Hood Story from Africa , by Niki Daly. Set in urban Accra, Ghana, this story follows pretty Salma to the market. In this version, a sly dog tricks Salma, despite her grandmother’s warning to not speak with strangers. Fortunately she goes to get help and everyone learns a lesson at the end. There is no violence in the end, which makes it slightly different than the traditional Little Red Riding Hood Story. I love the cultural details in the illustrations and throughout the story! My kids really enjoyed this version.

Over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house Little Red goes! But this spunky red-caped girl runs into a lot more than the Wolf in this fairytale forest.  One of the Three Little Pigs, Snow White, Rapunzel, and even a Steward with a glass slipper cross her path on her way to grandmother’s house!
