This week, I am featuring:
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith
One of my most favorite picture books ever. I first read this book in college when I took a Children’s Literature class. Truly that was one of the BEST classes I ever took in college. I got to read kid’s lit for an entire semester! Is there a better class?! Anyway, since then, my daughter and I have read it probably 1, 847, 629 times since her birth. It’s one of her favorites too. Why do we love it so much? Because it is hilarious. And, it is a great tool to teach unreliable narrator, which really is a great way to teach about stranger danger. If you are a mom or dad looking for a really good, highly engaging, hilarious read I highly recommend The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.
