10 thoughts on “The Three Little Pigs

  1. A traditional tale but an excellent book for the early years. This book includes repetition and takes the children on an exciting journey to see which house the wolf can and cannot destroy. In the early years setting this book links in great with many early learning goals and then children can use the theme of the book when playing and exploring.

  2. ‘The Three Little Pigs’ is a great lift-the-flap book, which shows the journey of three little pigs that decide to leave home and build their own houses. This version of the classic story has been retold in a rhyme which makes it perfect for reading aloud to children and encourages children to get involved. With flaps and surprises on each page it really engages young children. Teachers can also use puppets when telling this story. Role play is also a very exciting way of getting the children in

  3. This is adorable. Mr 6 chose this as his bedtime story tonight. Most of the time the rhyme is easy but I stumbled with the flow a little. I love the reason why the three little pigs moved into the three houses.

  4. 1. Three little pigs have to find their way in the world. Each pig builds a house and they get tested by the wolf. He blows the first two down and fails to blow the third one down. The wolf ends up getting boiled by the last pig.
    2. This book connects with our chapter because it is a type of folk tale. The type is cumulative because each pig builds a house that is just a little bigger than the last pigs so it is repetitive. I think it could also be a fable because it has animals talking in human

  5. i think the words for this book is at a third grade level and up.i recommend this because kids will like it because of the pictures and they can act out the scenes.this story is about three little pigs building three different types of houses in the wolf tries and blow them down but cant seem to blow the last one down.i would recommend this book to all little kids.

  6. A superbly observed morality tale, dealing with the perennial challenge of any Project Manager as to how to manage the compromises between time, cost and quality.
    The Wolf is a plausible analogue for the modern day works inspector, issuing harsh judgements for sloppy, unsafe work; but always in the best interests of the pigs.

    An excellent addition to the Project Manager’s bookshelf

  7. This story (or any version of it really) could be used as an example of predator and prey. The wolf wants to eat the pigs, but the pigs are able to get away. The students would be able to recognize that pigs wouldn’t really escape by using a house that they built. The students could come up with more realistic ways the pigs might be able to defend themselves from the wolf, and give other examples of defenses that other animals have.

  8. I could have sworn that the first two pigs survived and ran to safety to the brick house, funny how your memory of something changes Oh we’ll, quite sad really and a bit of a barbaric ending!
