***Read and reviewed with my niece Emma***
(When she was 4 and I was 41)

The greatest story ever told? Quite possibly!

I think it's Emma's favorite, even though I don't think she's quite caught on to the think-ahead, strength-in-numbers, build-it-to-last concepts yet. She just seems to like to follow along with the exciting story and listen to my increasingly over-the-top Big Bad Wolf impressions. By the time we're done with this story I'm going to need a wind machine.

I believe the Little Golden Bo

The pigs know they have to build their house. But the reason Ive always loved this book is it shows the differences among the siblings and it is much like real life. There is usually one who has to take care of the others mistake and they don't ask questions, just open their doors to family. I wonder why they never went back to moms house??
Theme- brothers, mistakes, survival, sticking together

The all time favorite book of mine as a child. I made my father read this to me every night I loved it so much.

I enjoyed "Three Little Pigs" by Al Dempster, because it is a little kid’s book but it also allows you to think like a kid again. I understand the authors’ message in this book. Not only what he is saying but how he feels as he writes this book.

The book is told through third person perspective. The three little pigs are trying to find a way to keep their houses strong to keep the big bad wolf away. No matter what happens to the three little pigs they are always there for each other.

The Three Little Pigs is a cute story about three little pigs that leave their mother's house to build their own homes and live on their own. Two of the little pigs quickly built their houses of weak materials such as grass and sticks so they would have more time to play while the third pig worked hard to build a strong house of brick. After the Big Bad Wolf easily blows down the first two houses he finds it impossible to get at the pigs inside the brick house.

This short story for primary grade

Three Little Pigs

In the book, Three Little Pigs, the author Al Dempster shares the message of how important it is to work hard. In the book, the three little pigs are kicked out of the house by their mother and forced to build new houses on their own. The pigs have to build their houses strong enough so that when the wolf comes around they wont get ruined. The first two pigs play around and at the last minute throw their houses together with some straw and sticks, but th

This revised and up-to-date telling of the three little pigs story is done with great detail, humor, and dynamics. The personality of each little pig is expounded upon in Al Dempster's Three Little Pigs, each one different and unique in the overall sibling dynamics. The concepts of unity, family cohesion, and the merits of craftsmanship are presented well in this story. The interaction between the three pigs will leave the reader chuckling and eager to turn the page. As an instructional piece, t ...more

When I was a little girl I loved this book so much!

This book is a classic. I simply loves this story since I was a little child. This book is about three pigs who told their mom that they wanted to live on their own. Their mom told them to be carefull from the wolf. The first pig build a house s out of straw, another out of sticks and the third pig out of bricks. The wolf goes to the first pig and blows his house so he ran to the second pig. The wolf goes to the second pig house and blows his house too. The two pigs go to the third pig house tha ...more

Walt Disney did it again with the creation of "Three Little Pigs", adding to the entourage of classic children's books that they have published throughout the years. As a child I remember reading this book scared out of my mind for the life of the three little pigs. Even though my mother read me the story over and over and over again, I got just as worried every single time as if I didn't know if they were going to be ok. I used to get so frustrated and upset when the big bad wolf would appear i ...more

This was my favorite of the three little pigs this is the short to the point story of three pigs who tell there mother they want to live on their own. She tells them ok but to look out the wolf. The first pig builds his house of straw the wolf comes asks him to open the door or he will huff and puff and blow the house down. He does so the pig runs to his brothers house who built his hous eout of sticks. The wolf comes and then he tells them open up or he will huff and puff and blow the house dow ...more

Three Little Pigs is a classic traditional folk story that almost everyone knows. Each little pig has a house that must try and withstand a blow from the Big Bad Wolf. The main theme of this story is that even though there are many different ways to do things, sometimes one certain way works better than others. All in all this is a great classic for preschool age children.
Rosa Cline
Disney did a very good job putting a 'new' twist on an old classic. This story is close to the classic without changing it up a bit. Illustrations were wonderful as well. Three pig brothers each building either own houses and a wolf coming and blowing down two of them. In the end the wolf gets ran off and the brothers work together to build them all a brick house of their own.
Jessalyn Collins
The "Three Little Pigs" is a classic story that almost all children are familiar with before stepping into a classroom. This version of the book tells the story in a traditional way and is paired with colorful illustrations that appeal to the youngest audiences. Just from the cover, you can see the three pigs having a great time. And despite the plot of the story, the illustrations throughout the entire book are continually pleasant. This would be a book I am comfortable reading to my preschool ...more

This is one of my all time favourite childrens books. This story is based around 3 little pigs who have parted ways and decide to live alone. Each of the little pigs build their ideal home. The big bad wolf decides to pay each little pig a visit... You would need to read the rest SPOLIERS.

The reason why I like this book is because it is simple to read. Young children are able to grasp the concept of the story very quickly. The book contains animated images which are appealing to young children.

The Three Little Pigs is an all time classic that is appropriate to be read to 0-4 year olds and easy enough to read after the child has developed his or her rhythm. As a child I remember reading The Three Little Pigs in many different versions and all have the same theme and moral.
Children can take away the importance of hard work and patients from this cute little story. To begin with there will always be the appeal of doing it the easiest way to play and have fun but when it comes what matter

This classic story book can be used as a picture storybook and is a great introduction to reading for younger students. this book tells the story of the three little pigs and the big bad wolf. I chose this book because it is probably familiar and is a fun story for younger children.
Tristen Rhoden
This was one of my favorite stories as a kid and is a great kids book. There's three pigs and they all build houses to protect themselves from a wolf. Two of the pigs houses don't work and they have to help each other out and they all end up in one sturdy house.

When my sister and I get home from school-to signal our little sister that it is us and not a predator- we kind of bang on the door and say,"Little pig, little pig, let us come in". But even though she knows it is us, she'll still ask who's there anyway.
Tawishidogra
this is a very nice book fro children to read and you could read it your young brothers/sisters
it talks about three cute pigs and they go to build new house but the cruel wolf wants to eat them and this book talks about the adventures of there life
Skilbane
The Three Little Pigs is another classic story that truly teaches a good lesson to anyone of any age. The lesson and tradition learned in this book is that hard work pays off. This message displayed in the book is something that I think is so valuable for children and adults to know. If you don't ever put hard work into your everyday activities you will never get the results you really want. The two pigs who laugh at the pig who works hard at making a brick house so the big bad wolf doesn't blow ...more

This is the classic tail of the three little pigs. In this story three little brother pigs are asked to move out by their mother. They each built their own houses and used different resources, one day the big bad wolf pays a visit to each pig and blows their houses down except for the last little pig's house. This book has a lot of great qualities that can be used in the classroom for example: repetition, sequencing, and character traits. Each pig is described a different way because they were e ...more

I was required to read this several times for ED112. You never realize how deep a book can be, or what you have missed until you have read it at least three times.
Shahida Zia Gill
Loved by all age groups. This story produces a mountain of literature. Fantastic for thinking about strength sticking together as a family, class school etc.
Michael
Damn political correctness, they took a good fairy tale that could be used as a teaching tool to teach the grand kids good morals and ethics in life, and they ruined it by their stupid "we don't want to scare the children" pablum. At least I read them the "Real Story of the Three Little Pigs" the other night and could instill in them the seed of a decent work ethic that hopefully won't get snuffed out by our "Publik Skole Sistem". Oh well, I got other nightly reads that will be good for them. BT ...more
Emerson
This is a Disney classic and would probably be better as a Disney short or audio book because it has little songs in the text of the pigs singing. Emerson was very interested in the big, bad wolf. But the pictures don't follow along quite as well with the story as a young reader expects.
For example, when the big bad wolf tries to blow the house down, the picture shows the little pigs in the house but there is no image of the wolf--who is clearly the exciting part of the story. Emerson kept aski

This version of Three Little Pigs isn't the one I grew up reading, so it's not my favorite (it seems to be lacking parts), but it's okay.
Han
I was going to give 3 star but I saw (hardcover) so i gave it 4. This book is appropriate for little kids and fun to read.
Dee
You can't go wrong with this classic fairy tale. I'm not really sure what the moral is supposed to be, but it's fun to read lol.
