Big Bad Wolf’s first visit to his local library (as related in Mind Your Manners, B.B. Wolf) was such a success that he returns to tell his version of “The Three Little Pigs.” His outrageous spin on the tale draws skeptical remarks from his audience: “Isn’t that wolf’s nose getting longer?” asks Pinocchio. “It’s a cooked-up, half-baked tale,” snaps the Gingerbread Boy. And “Tell the truth, B.B. Wolf!” squeal the Three Little Pigs. Caught in his own lie, B.B. explains that he is a reformed villain: “Now I’m begging on my knees, Little Pigs, forgive me, please!” How B.B. turns his bad old deed into a good new one provides a happy ending to this fun-to-read fractured fairytale.

I have been teaching since 1998. I have experience teaching Pre-K, Kindergarten, First, and Third grade. My passion is teaching Pre-K students, because they are like sponges who soak up information and knowledge. As a Pre-K teacher, I have the incredible opportunity to watch my four/five year old students undergo an amazing transformation. Students that enter school unable to recognize a single letter, color, number or shape but are quickly transformed into wonderfully print-literate and mathematical conversationalists.

We are doing a Fairy Tale unit and I would love to have this book to read to our Pre-K students. We want them to be able to hear different versions of a story, so they are able to talk about the similarities and differences between books. This is a important skill for them to have to prepare them for kindergarten.

My students are eager Pre-Kindergarteners. My Pre-K students are part of a Title 1 school, with the majority qualifying for free or reduced lunch and who are English Language Learners, with Spanish being their home language.
