RED RIDING HOOD – Capital letters/Proper & common nouns/Adjectives/Adverbs

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Red Riding Hood. She was very beautiful. She always wore a red dress with a red cap. One day, her mother told her, “Take this basket of fruits to your grandmother. She is very sick.

 Take care on your way and do not talk to any strangers.” Little Red Riding Hood set off in the woods on a bright morning. The sun was shining bright. The sky was clear. The air was cool and gentle wind was blowing. Birds were singing sweetly. Red Riding Hood saw colorful butterflies, beautiful flowers, red, pink, yellow daffodils and the blue sky. She was dancing and singing merrily on the way. All of a sudden, a wolf sprang up and asked her, “Where are you going, pretty girl?” Red Riding Hood forgot her mom’s advice and replied, “I am going to see my grandmother who lives in the woods.” The wolf was very wicked. He reached the grandmother’s house before Red Riding Hood. He knocked the door. Old grandmother said, “Come in dear, the door is open.” The wolf entered the house and locked up the Grandma in a cupboard. He then, put her clothes and got into her bed to pretend to be a grandmother.

When Red Riding Hood arrived, she knocked the door and came in. She wished her grandmother good health and asked in surprise:
“Oh, Grandma! What big eyes you have?”
“All the better to see you with,” said the wolf who was disguised as Grandma.
“Oh, Grandma! What big ears you have?”
“All the better to hear you with,” said the wolf.
“Oh, Grandma! What big hands you have?”
“All the better to hug you with,” said the wolf.
“Oh, Grandma! What big teeth you have?”
“All the better to eat you with,” said the wolf.
And so saying, the wolf jumped up to catch little Red Riding Hood. She screamed and shouted, “Help.” A wood-cutter heard her voice and came running to Grandma’s cottage. He chopped off the wolf with his axe and saved little Red Riding Hood and her grand-mother.
Little Red Riding Hood learnt a lesson and from that day onwards, always obeyed her mother.

Explain Adverbs : An adverb is a word that adds meaning to a verb, an adjective or another adverb. It tells when, where or how.
