Favorite Kids Books
We're Going On A Bear Hunt - Vivian French,Michael Rosen,Helen Oxenbury
How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - Dr. Seuss

I really only have two favorite kids books. When my kids were in preschool we read and memorized "We're going on a Bear Hunt." We would recite it in the car and while we were walking or just doing anything. My other favorite is Dr. Seuss' "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." 

 

What brought these books to mind? As I came downstairs this morning, I was following behind one of my rescue cats and I changed the words to "I'm going on a cat hunt, I'm going to find a needy one." My youngest was with me and she joined in and we just had a little giggle over it. My husband would not have appreciated it, as he says, we have enough cats. 

 

The books are by far my favorites and I will always remember reading them to my girls when they were little.

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig
The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig: A Pop-Up Storybook with a Twist in the Tale! - Eugene Trivizas,Helen Oxenbury

Reading this book allows for the students to experience different versions of folktale stories. The book could be used in a 4th-6th grade classroom. You could have the students compare and contrast two different versions of the story. You could also have the students create a story that follows the same outline of the story. The Three Little _________ and the Big Bad ____________.

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bag Pig
The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig: A Pop-Up Storybook with a Twist in the Tale! - Eugene Trivizas,Helen Oxenbury

This book as a perfect book to include in a fairytale study of different versions of The Three Little Pigs. Although I would have no problem reading it to kindergarten or first grade, I would only do a fairytale study of different versions of one story with second through sixth grade. I say this because, over the course of the study, I would have the students record the differences and similarities they see in each fairytale. Now while doing this as a class would be fine for kindergarten and first, I would want the students to read the stories and record their finding on their own. While I may not do the fairytale study for kindergarten and first with this book, I would still use it to show how it is important to be kind to others, even if they are not nice to you. If needed I would also use this approach to the book for second grade to third.

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig: A Pop-Up Storybook with a Twist in the Tale! - Eugene Trivizas,Helen Oxenbury

This book could be used in a 1-3rd grade classroom. The students could make a venn diagram and compare and contrast it to another book, like the true story of the three little pigs. This is a great activity to start off with for a compare and contrast activity. Students will enjoy it. The teacher and students could also make an anchor chart to display on the wall.
