The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! - John A. Scieszka

Grade Level: Pre-K-K, 1-2, 3-5

Lexile Level: AD570L

This book is about the classic story, "The Three Little Pigs" but told from the wolf's point of view. The wolf is going to bake a cake for his grandmother but he is out of sugar. He goes to each pig's house asking for sugar but he is suffering from a cold and his sneezes are what blows their houses down. From their houses falling down, the first 2 pigs die and the wolf eats them, therefore, giving him the title of the "bad guy". He is sent to jail but it was all a misunderstanding, or so he says. This book would be great to use for a point of view lesson or a lesson on comparing and contrasting.

This is a version of the Three Little Pigs that shows the story from the wolf's point of view. In this story, the wolf is baking a cake for his grandmother but he does not have any sugar, so he decides to go visit the little pigs down the road to get some. As he comes up to the first house, the little pig was rude and would not give the wolf any sugar. The wolf had to sneeze and accidentally blew the pig's house down. The pig passed away and the wolf decided not to leave such a great snack just lying there so he ate the pig. He went to the second house and the same thing happened, the wolf sneezed and blew the house down, killing the pig. That poor pig was also eaten. The third house was made of bricks so the wolf was not able to accidentally blow the house down. The police came to arrest the wolf and put him in jail. 

I would use this story to help introduce the concept of different points of view.

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs - Jon Scieszka,Lane Smith

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs is the story of the three little pigs seen from the wolf's perspective. I read this about a year ago and I like that there is a different version of a classic story written in a different point of view by having the wolf tell his side of the story.

 

I would use this story in a first or second grade classroom, discussion perspective and points of view. I would have an anchor chart on display and together we would compare and contrast the wolf's perspective and the pigs' perspective.

This is a great book for students to read for many reasons. It tells the story of the three little pigs from the viewpoint of the wolf. This book would be great for a lesson on points of view as well as compare and contrast. I have done one lesson with this book that focused on inferences. This is a great book that can offer a variety of lessons.

Three Hens and a Peacock
Three Hens and a Peacock - Lester Laminack,Henry Cole

To start off with, I believe this book is great to use with kindergarten up to sixth grade. As for how I would use this book, there are two different ways. The first way I would use this book is a compare and contrast with another version of The Three Little Pigs with second to sixth graders. The second way I would use it, which I like a little better, is to discuss the subject of how everything is not how it appears to be with kindergarten and first graders. In other words, while we think that one person has it easier than us, in actuality they actually have it just as hard or harder. Then I would have the students turn and discuss one instance where they thought one thing and it turned out to be totally different with their partner.
