I am always very excited to execute these 3 to 5 years Parent and Me sessions. For me it brings to life everything I desire The Reading Garden to be! We read the story, we "jump in"using props so the children can walk through the story and then we build a storyboard. The joy I see on the faces of both the children and parents lights up my heart.
I chose to tell the original version of the story. Yes, the one where two of the pigs are eaten and the wolf tries to lure the third pig out of the house in order to have him as a meal. The third pig is too smart and he avoids the wolf every time. This angers the wolf and he decides to climb down the chimney where he falls into a pot of boiling water and he eaten, by the third little pig, for supper.
Some of the children looked really confused! WHAT??! They get eaten? The wolf asks the third pig to go apple picking? They had never heard these things but the elements that remained the same captivated them throughout the session.
They say a picture speaks a thousand words. I am grateful to Joanna De Silva for capturing these beautiful pictures of our very exciting Three Little Pigs event!
WE WILL BRING THE BOOK BACK!
