Summary: This is the age old tale of a bored sheppard boy. He tricks the villagers by yelling “Wolf!” not once but twice. The citizens become upset and quit listening to him. When he does need true help there is no one there to believe him.

Personal Reaction: This is one of my favorite stories for my own children. It teaches a valuable lesson in a very direct way. My children are now teens and I still ask them, “Is this a wolf?”

Classroom Extensions:
1. Excellent story to teach young classes about honesty.
2. This would be an easy story for students to learn the skill of drawing conclusions.
3. This is an easy story to teach beginning, middle, and end with. ( )
