Learning Objectives: To be able to identify the main character in a story
and to be able to describe the main.
A main character is the most prominent character in a text. Every story must
have a main character. These are the characters who are most affected by
what happens in the story. We can learn about characters from how they are
described, what they think, how they feel, and how they behave.
In a the children’s fairytale “Little Red Riding Hood”, Little Red Riding Hood is
the main character.
This is because she is the person we follow throughout the story, the one who
is most affected by what happens and we learn about her the most through the
description that she is a young naive girl who selflessly visits her poorly
grandma with cookies.
