Overview

Hidden Forest has a new resident. Little Red Hen and her seven little chicks have moved into a cottage and plan to grow a bountiful crop of corn in the nearby field. The problem is that none of the Red Hen's neighbors are willing to help with the hard work. "Not I," says the dog, the goose, and the lazy cat. So Goldilocks, who has heard about the new arrivals from her friend Little Red Riding Hood, comes up with a neighborly idea: Why don't all the residents of Hidden Forest chip in and work on the garden? Better yet, why not make it a surprise? Of course there are a couple of residents who might not be so cooperative. Will Wolfy Lupus and his cousin Fer O'Cious hatch a new plot of their own?
Following the highly acclaimed Dear Peter Rabbit and Yours Truly, Goldilocks, Alma Flor Ada and Leslie Tryon offer young readers another peek into the world of their favorite storybook characters, revealed through the charming letters they write to one another.

When I first read this book I fell in love with it. This book is good for teaching children how to write letters to their friends. Being a future teacher when I read a book I look for ways to use in my classroom. I can use this book for many different activities.

I like this book because it is just a book of letters, but the letters are from different characters that children should know from classic fairy tales. This book has Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, and Peter cottontale, along with many more. The book tells a story with the letters, and through everything they are able to meet new friends and show how to be good friends to people they do not know.

I would recommend this book for anyone, it is a very good book.

This is a great way to introduce your K-3 child to letter writing. Funny spin on the old folk tales
