Program: We will read Little Red Hot by Eric A. Kimmel and make red hot playdough (see ingredients list below).


Book Synopsis: Little Red Hot loves red hot chili peppers. She eats them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When her grandmother catches a cold, Little Red makes her a hot pepper pie that will "knock those cold germs right out of her." But before Little Red shares her pie with Grandma, she meets Senor Lobo — and the pie comes in very handy when the wily wolf tries to trick her into thinking he's her grandmother.
