    1. A classic! Great for predicting. This is a fun one to tell on a flannel board or have your students retell in their own words.


    2. Love James Marshall and his unique and wonderful illustrations. His entire series of fairy tale renditions is magic.


    3. Darba autors ir Džeimss Maršals. Darba nosaukums ir Trīs mazi sivēntiņi. Stāsts noris rudenī, kad sivēntiņi sāk celt mājas aukstajai ziemai. Es izvēlējos šo grāmatu, jo es nekad nebiju lasījis trīs sivēntiņus, bet es jau apmēram zināju kas ir stāsta pamatā. Šis stāsts ir savā ziņā uzjautrinošs pieaugušam lasītājam, bet dažkārt vajag paskatīties uz pasauli ar bērna acīm un izprast, ko bērns iemācās no stāsta morāles. Stāsta morāle ir tāda, ka lai kā t [...]


    4. This rendition of The Three Little Pigs is similar to the original story I grew up knowing, but very different in many ways. First, the first two little pigs are both outsmarted and eaten by the wolf. This is different from the forgiving and gentle story I grew up with where the first and second pig eventually ran to the third pigs house for safety. Secondly, the methods that the wolf uses to attempt in outsmarting the third little pig are different. He tries to arrange meetings to eat turnips o [...]


    5. The Three Little Pigs is a classic story that is told in different ways. In this telling there were three little pigs who left from home to start new lives of their own. The first pig made his house out of straw. A wolf came by and was hungry for pig, so he told the little pig to let him, the pig said no so the wolf blew down his house and ate him. This happened to the second pig how built his house of sticks. The third pig built his house out of bricks. The wolf tried to blow his house down but [...]


    6. This is another retold version of The Three Little Pigs, although this story more closely follows the original version. I enjoyed the illustrations in this picture book. They were cartoonish looking pictures that made the story more entertaining then the original. After reading this book, I didn't really know that the three pigs had a mother or the fact that the third pig beat the wolf by scaring him at least once in the story. It was entertaining to see the wolf being tricked over and over and [...]


    7. Fairy Tales Review Assignment (Book One):The Three Little Pigs by James Marshall best depicts the original fairy tale. Similar to the original fairy tale, the wolf uses trickery to try to lure the third little pig out. He fails in the end because the little pig is too clever for him. This book would be appropriate for children in grades K-2. The story is an easy read aloud and children would naturally chime in with the rhythmic chants like, “I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your hou [...]


    8. A funny retelling of the classic fairy tale of the three little pigs, with lift-the-flap surprises. The book has lift up flaps throughout, so very engaging and interactive for young children. It is a good way of introducing rhyme to children, as it has rhymes and repetition throughout. The rhymes are very well constructed and flow well, making it easy to read. The illustrations are bright, colourful, cheerful and each page is enhanced by 'lift the flaps'. A good telling of the story which is not [...]


    9. The three little pigs is a classic and should be known by all children. I loved this version and the pictures in it! The big bad wolf looked mean and careless as he huffed and puffed at the fat little piggies homes. Although the pigs get eaten and the mean old wolf in the end I still think this book would be good to read to a first grade class. I can imagine the kids screeching and laughing just thinking about it now. I also think the kids would enjoy joining in with the repetitive nature of the [...]


    10. Rating: 3Review: The three little pigs is a suitable book for young children. It is a classic children's story that includes funny voices for the pigs and the bad wolf. The three little pigs need help in the story because the wolf has taken over their house. How would you utilize in the classroom:Read the three little pigs before nap time while the children are getting settled onto their cots, dim the lights, and read the story aloud. The teacher should change their voice to make the piggy chara [...]


    11. "The Three Little Pigs" is a classic fairy tale that has been retold time and time again. This version by James Marshall includes beautiful watercolor illustrations that help move the story along. Though because the pigs were somewhat rude, I'm not sure that I would use this version in a classroom of young children.Utilized in the classroom: This story could be used in lessons on math and construction. The children could do activities building their own pig houses using various materials to find [...]


    12. This fun book was written in rhymes that children would all enjoy. This book even has flaps that can be lifted that can keep students engaged to guess what is to come next.I can use this book in class for students to use compare and contrast of the version they are aware of and how different it may be or read another book that is also about three little pigs to get students to compare between two books. Students can also think and write their own different endings to the story or what part they [...]


    13. This story starts off with once upon a time and is a true fairy tale. This is the classic story of the three pigs that is why I like this book. It has great illustrations and describes how each pig has found material to build a house. This story would go great with a construction unit and I would even read this book before I did an activity that had the children build with toothpicks and marsh mellows. I would ask them to construct a house for themselves.


    14. This book is a classic that is told in a way for catching the children's attention. The Three Little Pigs is a story that can be used in the classroom in the block center. You can put out different materials so the children can try to build numerous structures that the big bad wolf can't blow down. These kind of activities build team work skills.


    15. This book is a childhood all time favorite. Its a comedy and it is also a suspense at the same time. It is good for children imagination and excitement. This story also has a lot of rhyme and repetition in it.I would use this in the classroom by showing how teamwork can get you out of situations that you may have trouble with.


    16. I absolutely loved The Three Little Pigs by James Marshall. In this classic story the author uses rhymes and detailed illustration with pop up flaps to engage students in a different twist in his retold story. I would use this book in my classroom to incorporate using retelling strategies and sequencing events.


    17. This is much more like the fairy-tale that I remember reading, though it is a bit different in the end. This is a fun book. I know the students would like this because the pig outsmarts the wolf.


    18. The three little pigs was a story about three little pigs building their own house. One out of straw, sticks and bricks. But one by one a mean old harry wolf would come by and threaten them of eating them. He would huff and puff and blow there house I and east them. He ate the first two pigs but the last pig whit the house made of bricks had a trick for the wolf.

    20. The Three Little Pigs by James Marshall is a book level 3.3. Summary: This story is about three pigs who build a house of straw, sticks and brick. A big bad wolf comes and tries to blow down their houses. Classroom Integration: The way I would integrate this story into a classroom writing trait would be by looking at the organization of the story better. This fairy tale is well laid out and great way to explain that the author set us up in the beginning of the story so we understood where she wa [...]


    21. The illustrations and "tongue-in-cheek" narrative carry this traditional retelling of THE THREE LITTLE PIGS, by James Marshall. The illustrations on the cover and throughout the book give the precious snouted pigs a "happy-go-lucky" personality. The long nosed, fanged toothed, yellow eyed wolf has a mischievous, conniving look. The reader will chuckle at the first pig's reply to the "straw" man's advice not to use his straw. The pig says, "Mind your own business, thank you." The second "stick" p [...]


    22. This is the story of the Three Little Pigs who leave home and plan on living on their own. The first buys a load of straw and builds his home with it. The wolf comes along, blows down the home and eats the little pig. The next pig builds his home out of sticks and the same thing happens. The third pig builds his home out of bricks and the wolf was unable to blow his house down. The wolf tries multiple attempts to get the pig out of his home. When those all fail he decides to climb down the chimn [...]


    23. It is time for the three little pigs to set out on their own which means they need to build a house to live in that will protect them from the hungry wolf. One was built using straw but it was blown down and he was eaten up. One was built using sticks, but it was also blown down and he was eaten up too. The final one which was built using bricks and stood very strong against the wolf. The third pig used the wolf to get the fresh food but was always earlier than the wolf so he wouldn’t get eate [...]

    25. This retelling of the three little pigs, adds an interesting twist at the end. While the first two pigs, with houses made of straw and sticks, get eaten, the pig with the house of bricks stays alive.

    27. This story is about three little pigs sent out to live on their own. Each pig makes a house; one of straw, one of sticks, one of bricks. The first 2 were eaten by the wolf. The third pig had the house of bricks and kept trying to trick the pig out of his house, but never caught the pig. The wolf climbed on the roof and down the chimney where he fell in a pot to become wolf sew for the pig.I rated this book 4 out of 5 because it is a good retell of the original story with a little twist.


    28. A book I️ would only recommend for an older audience because they would be the ones to appreciate the harsh humor.
