Summary: The three little pigs is a book about 3 pigs that all live right next to each other. One builds his house out of hay and thinks his is the best. The other builds his out of sticks and thinks the same. And the last builds his out of bricks. The big bad wolf comes along and blows the first pigs house down made of hay. He runs next door to the house of sticks. The big bad wolf comes and blows that one down too. So they run to the brick house and the wolf can not blow it down. They then realize the brick house was the best.

Personal reaction: I used to read this book every day as a child. It was one of my very favorites growing up. I think it has a good message to not be mean to anyone who has a different idea than you do.

Classroom extension: I think students could be put into groups and given different materials to see which one would be the strongest while they work together.

I liked this book for two reasons. First the illustrations were very engaging. Students can see what is happening without even reading the book. They can see one pig is building a house with straw, one with sticks and one with bricks. Another reason is because the language is clear and patterned. The book goes in a pattern, for example first the wolf blows down the first pig’s house, then the second, then the third pigs. The story is very organized based on how the wolf goes from weakest house to strongest house. The main idea of the story is to take your time to do things right ( )

This book is a classic about three pigs who set out to make their fortune, but each has his own idea of work. One pig makes a house out of straw, one out of sticks and one out of bricks. The two pigs laugh at the pig who took his time to build the brick house until a wolf comes. The two pigs soon have their house blown down by the wolf and seek safety from the pig with the brick house. The three pigs trapped the wolf and he fell into a boiling pot of water and ran away. I liked this book because it is has a good moral message of "hard work and patience pays off" and "work before play". It shows a good example of what can happen if you do not do a job the right way and rush through it. The example of the first two pigs proves this point. I also like the illustrations in this particular book, because it contains the classic Disney pictures that I remember seeing as a child. It feels very nostalgic which is appropriate when reading a classic. ( )

this book is about three little pigs that were trying no to get eaten by the big bad wolf. They each built a house to keep the wolf out. The first pig made a house out of straw/hay and the wolf blew it down. the second pig made a house out of sticks and the wolf blew it down as well. the last pig made a house out of bricks and the wolf tried his best to get it down but couldn't.
This book is a great book to get children involved. The teacher can ask the children's questions about what they think will happen next. I love this book.
Classroom extension: I will allow the children to draw a picture of a house they would build to keep the wolf out, then we would share about what materials were used. ( )

Summary: This book is about three pigs who each build their house out of different building materials in order to stop a big bad wolf from trying to eat them. The first and second pig are unsuccessful but the third pig is successful.

Personal Reaction: This book is a classic picture book. I can remember this book when I was a child. I think every child can memorize this book and be able to tell the story from memory.

Extension Ideas: 1. The children can put on a puppet show while the book is being read. 2. After the book is read the children could color pictures of the pigs.
