Children's fairy tale "Little Red Riding Hood": short content and morals

Since childhood, my favorite fairy tales - "The Princess on, "Snow White", "Cinderella", "Thumbelina", "Cat in Boots" and, of course, "Little Red Riding Hood." The brief content of each story is familiar to us practically from the diaper, because after "Kolobok", "Repki" and "Kurochki Ryaby" parents read to the children the works of Andersen, the Brothers Grimm and S. Perrot.Each story is not only entertaining, but instructive, in an unobtrusive way instructing the child on the right path.In the article, we recall the short content of the fairy tale "Little Red Riding Hood" and try to understand what is the moral of history.

Acquaintance with the author

The author of the fairy tale "Little Red Riding Hood", shortthe content of which is set out below, is the French author of the era of classicism Charles Perrault. Born in the early 17th century in France. Being from a noble family, he occupied a prominent position at the court, enjoyed the confidence of King Louis IV, largely determined the direction of the development of the arts in the kingdom.

Perrault was active in literaryactivity and wrote a lot of good poems and novels, but he is known to descendants mainly on the small collection "Mother Goes Tales of the Goose". The collection was first published in 1697 and immediately glorified the author. The book contained 8 fairy tales, including "Little Red Riding Hood". A brief summary of this unusual story read further.


As always, "there lived a girl ..."It's not known what the girl's name really was, but her fellow-villagers nicknamed her Little Red Riding Hood because she always wore a pretty red hat." One day, my mother told my daughter to take her gifts to the sick grandmother. "It's not specified in the tale, but as the road to the neighboring village went through the forest , I want to believe that my mother strictly ordered the girl not to leave the path and not talk to strangers.

The baby walked unhurriedly to her grandmother, collectingroad flowers and singing a hilarious little song. Suddenly a wolf came out to meet her. He asked the girl in detail about where and why she was going, and she trustingly told everything. Then the wolf offered the game, who will quickly run to the grandmother's house. "You go along this road, and I'll run that way," said the insidious villain and ran along the short trail, and the main heroine of the tale went along the long one.

Of course, the wolf ran to his grandmother first.He knocked on the door, and the corrupt old woman, lying in bed, shouted a famous phrase: "Granddaughter, tear at the string, the door and it will open!" The wolf ran into the house and ate his grandmother. Then I lay down in her bed and waited for Red Riding Hood to come.

The summary of the fairy tale can not do without the famous dialogue when the girl and the villain meet:

"Grandmother, grandmother," asked Little Red Riding Hood, "why are your hands so big?"

"To embrace you, my grandson," answered the wolf.

Further it turned out that he needed big ears,to better hear the girl, and big eyes - to see her well. The turn came to the teeth ... And the wolf ate the baby, demonstrating to her why he needed such huge teeth.


Fortunate, the hunters walked by.They suspected something was wrong, ran into the house and killed the gray villain. They opened his belly, and from there live and unharmed grandmother and her granddaughter left. So ended his tale Charles Perrault. Little Red Riding Hood (we already remembered a brief history) with my grandmother were alive, and the wolf suffered a well-deserved punishment.


Why do we read this story to the children? The tale teaches that you should not trust the first person you meet, let alone tell him where your grandmother lives.
