This book is about three Billy goats that wanted to cross the bridge in order for them to get food, but they could not go by because of a mean troll. The goats eventually trick the troll and make it to the other side of the bridge. A student can learn that when they have difficult situation or challenge in their life, they can overcome it if they are confident and try. As the teacher is reading the story she or he can ask the students to predict what is going to happen next to see if the students have gotten the rhythm of it. ( )

This book coudd be very fun and engaging for younger children. The goats walk about on their hind legs, the smallest goat wears a diaper and sucks a pacifier, and the biggest wears a black leather jacket, to reinforce the point that he is tough enough to destroy the troll. The troll is quite scary, and although he does have a nose as long as a poker, his eyes are not as big as saucers. Age Range: 4 - 7 years, Grade Level: Preschool - 3

I remember this story from when I was younger, and still really liked it. It has so many lessons in it to teach children. It is predictable enough that students can figure out what will happen next, but still be surprised and engaged in the reading. ( )

The Three Billy Goats Gruff must each face an angry troll to cross the meadow to get fat. Each goat faces the troll but smarts their way out of it, until the third gruff comes along and handles the troll himself.
Critique: In this version of the Three Billy Goats Gruff the author uses great describing words for how the goats crossed the bridge (trip, trap, trap). The book also have great illustrations to describe what was taking place.
Craft element: pg 11 "What do you think the troll will do to the first goat?" allow students to say the goats movements will you (trip, trap, trip, trap). pg 16 "What is the troll going to do to the second goat?" pg 18 "What is the troll going to do with the third goat?"
Have students write by comparing and contrasting what the troll did with all three goats.
