Give, Save, Spend with the Three Little Pigs

What a great modern version of the Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Pigs! We get to meet the Three Little Pigs and see how each one of them lives in a different house. One house is made of straw, another made of sticks and the third one is made of bricks. Well, of course the Big Bad Wolf comes and wants to blow all the houses down. He huffs and puffs and blows all the houses down except the brick one. This angers the Big Bad Wolf, so he decides to move on and begins blowing down other forest animals’ houses. While the Three Little Pigs are now living safely together in their brother’s brick house, all the forest animals have a meeting. They decide that they also want to have brick houses so they’ll be safe. They all go visit the pigs and explain their situation. The pigs decide to build nice brick houses for every animal that wants one. In the process, the pigs make a nice profit. The big question is what do the pigs do with all their money that they earned? One pig wants to spend the money, another wants to give it away to help the community and the third, he wants them to put it in the bank in case of an emergency. If you want to find out what the pigs decided to do with their profit, pick up a copy for your child to read.

I really loved how Mr. Greenleaf broke down the famous story of the Three Little Pigs for children to understand and be able to apply it to today’s world they live in. In presenting this story in a simple storyline format and having the fun illustrations that children can follow along to, they will enjoy reading about the Three Little Pigs and their forest friends. While children are reading or being read to, they’ll learn about the give-save-spend-concept without even realizing it. This is an entertaining and invaluable approach to teaching children how to manage money at a young age. Well done, Mr. Greenleaf!
