In September, thoughts always turn to school. We either are going or know someone who is. We either dread it or are happy about new opportunities.
I am in the happy group. I just started a course on Children’s Lit. The first discussions were on fairy tales. In class this week, we compared three versions of the Little Red Riding Hood story. There was discussion of time periods, the amount or lack of detail in each version, the underlying (or not) sexuality in the tale and the moral. If this is a taste of what is to come, I am all in!
All of the fairy tales that we will be studying are from this volume.
