This book is a great story! It is another version of The Three Little Pigs and The Big Bad Wolf. It is about 3 little pigs who live at their mama's house. These little piggies love to eat; however, their mama thinks that they need to set out to seek their fortune. One by one, the pigs go off to seek their fortune but before they go, their mama tells them three things: 1) Watch out for the tricky old-drooly fox 2) Build a safe and strong house out of rocks 3) Come home to visit your dear mama every Sunday. The first two pigs never returned to mama's house on Sunday because their were taken by the fox. The last pig was wiser and instead of the fox capturing her, she captured the fox and tricked him into telling her where the other pigs were at.
I think this book would be great to use in a 2-4 grade level classroom to implement two different versions of the same story.
