Enter the big bad wolf! In this retelling of the classic fairytale, three little pigs try to save themselves from the big bad wolf. The first two pigs make houses of straw and wood respectively and are eaten by the wolf who huffs and puffs and destroys their houses before eating them. The third little pig however outsmarts the wolf. Read the book to find out/remember how the third little pig escaped the big bad wolf and what became of the wolf.
THUMBS UP AND DOWN
UP: This is a great book. Using lively illustrations and simple diction, it encourages children to read. The icing on the cake? It also teaches children to write and observe. It features some writing exercises and games (like spot-the-difference)! I recommend this book for all kids aged 0 to 4!
- The original fairytale is over a hundred years old! The first printed version was made in the 1840s!
