The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! - John A. Scieszka

Everyone knows the story of the three little pigs, right? Well, sometimes not everything is as it seems. And this is no different than this rendition of the three little pigs. These types of stories are great to share with students because it gets them seeing different sides of every story. Firsthand accounts and secondhand accounts are also a great mini lesson to include in these types of books. The intended audience for this book is 3rd graders. These students are old enough to know the traditional story and are old enough to be able tot think of this story in a different light. An activity I would do with this book is have student collaborate in groups and come up with their own version of the three little pigs. The students would then share and compare and contrast their stories with the originals and the other groups' renditions as well.
