When teaching students voice and point of view, this story can prove to be a great resource. This story is about the three little pigs, but the reason why this story is different is that it is told from the wolf’s point of view. Everyone knows what happened in the original story, but nobody ever asked the wolf his point of view. Throughout the book, the wolf explains his side of the story and the reason behind why he had to eat the three little pigs. The tone of the book is a bit comical and by the end of the story, the reader will feel a little bad for the wolf. In the end, students can grasp why point of view is so important; students will grasp the concept that there are many sides to every story. Moreover, when teaching theme and how to pick themes out of stories, this story can help students find the themes within the story without much difficulty. Therefore, when the students have to pick out the themes from more difficult texts, they will know how to find and how to explain them. In addition, the illustrations are well done and somewhat modern. They follow the wolf’s journey to explain his actions well. Overall, this children’s book is well done and entertaining.

Kathy Garner Reading an original version of The Three Little Pigs and then going to The True Story Of The 3 Little Pigs can introduce perspective to two different points of view.
