“Hi! It’s me Little Red Riding Hood! Is this cape cool or what? My Granny made it for me. I love it so much I’m never going to take it off. I mean it.”
“Little Red Riding Hood? Little Red? Oh! There you are. Granny is feeling sick so I made her a get-well basket full of food. Will you take it to her?”
“Of course Mom. With me on the job Granny will bounce back in no time! One of these might make Granny feel better too. Which one should I bring? Should I bring chicken noodle soup, an orange, or Popsicles?

“Have a good walk and be careful. Call me when you get there.”
“Ok Mom. I will. Skip n’ skip n’ skip n’ skip, to Granny’s house i go. Skip n’ skip n’ skip n’ skip, to Granny’s house i go. Skip n’ skip n’ skip n’ skip, oh. Which way should we go? Should we go though the Forest, walk on the beach, or hike through the mountains?”

“To Granny’s house I go. Skip n’ skip n’ skip n’ skip, to Granny’s house I go. Skip n’ skip n’ skip n’ skip . . .
“To Granny’s house you go”
“Ahhhh!”
“Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you. I just really liked your song. Here you dropped this yummy apple. What else do you have in that basket?”
“I have food for my sick Granny. Everything in this basket will help make her feel better.
“Mmmm, you’re such a good granddaughter taking food to your sick Granny. I really want that food. I wonder how I can get my paws on it. Ah, I have an idea. Watch this. Little Red Riding Hood, why don’t you bring Granny flowers, a card, or music? Grannies love those.
“Oh that’s a good idea. What should we bring? Some flowers, make a card, or write a song for Granny?

“Phew. I made it to the house before Little Red Riding Hood. Now I need to get Granny out of the house. That way when Little Red Riding Hood gets here I can have her yummy basket of food. Here goes . . .
Knock, knock, knock
“Who is it?”
“It’s . . . ummm . . . Who should I say it is? Should I tell Granny that I’m a plumber, a doctor, or a construction worker?

Woo-hoo! Granny is outta here! Aw come on, don’t look at me like that. I really want that basket of food and if I’m going to get it Granny can’t be here.
“Ah! If I dress up as someone else I’m sure Little Red Riding Hood will give it to me! What should I wear? Granny’s nightgown, a princess dress, or a police uniform?”

“What do you think, will Little Red Riding Hood believe that I’m her Granny?
Knock, knock, knock
“Who is it?”
“Its me, Little Red Riding Hood, your granddaughter.”
“Come on in.”
“Hi Granny. I’ve brought you some food to make you feel better.”
“Ohhh, how sweet dear.”
“You look so different, what big eyes you have.”
“The better to see you with my dear.”
“Granny, what big ears you have.”
“The better to hear you with my dear.”
“Granny, what sharp teeth you have.”
“The better to eat your basket full of food with my dear!”
knock, knock, knock
“Hello? I’m back. Oh hello, Little Red Riding Hood dear.”
“Granny? Wait, if you’re my Granny then who are you?
“I’m your Granny too? So just give me the basket of food and . . .”
“No you’re not. You’re the wolf trying to trick us by dressing up in Granny’s clothes! What should Granny and I do? Should we tell the wolf to leave or should we ask him why he pretended to be Granny?

“Well, I understand now. Helping your Grandmother is a good idea. But the next time you want a basket full of food, just ask.”
“I’m sorry. Let me try this again. Can I have your basket full of food to take to my Grandmother Wolf?”
I have a great idea! Why don’t you invite your Grandmother Wolf over and we’ll all eat together?”
“Great! I’ll call my Grandmother right now! Grandmother, Little Red Riding Hood and her Granny invited us over to eat!”
Knock, knock, knock
“Hello. It’s Grandmother Wolf.”
“That was fast!”
“Welcome Grandmother Wolf. We’re so glad you’re here.”
“It’s time to eat! Should we have a picnic, a tea party, or a pizza party?”
