The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs {scholastic storybook treasures}

The new year has been a rough start for my family. Each one hit by the flu and then croup. Now my daughter was hit again with another virus. She’s on a strict schedule of resting on the couch and taking it easy. Scholastic Storybook Treasures are truly helping her get through the forced couch time. The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs is one of my favorite Scholastic stories so far. It’s hysterical! it starts out with the Big Bad Wolf talking about how he’s been completely misunderstood. The poor wolf simply had a cold and went over to his neighbors homes to borrow some kitchen essentials. This is the first time we’ve ever heard the story from the wolf’s point-of-view. The story is narrated by Paul Giamatti (who cracks me up), so that’s another fun little twist.

Like all the other Scholastic Storybook Treasures you can put this in Read-A-Long mode or turn it off. Once again making all of these DVD’s something you’ll want to hold on to to help promote reading for those hungry little brains. I love how they match up other stories with the main feature. On the DVD, you also get four other stories. You get The Pigs’ Wedding, a story about how the pigs were too dirty for the wedding, but the host figures out a solution. Then you get Wallace’s Lists, this guy is so stinkin’ cute. Wallace creates a list for everything (even his friends) until the day he meets a neighbor and discovers this amazing world where there aren’t any lists (valuable lessons). Henry Builds a Cabin is next that tells the story of Henry who started off building a small cozy cabin and ended up with an extremely large house! Last story on this DVD is This Is the House that Jack Built. I’m sure you all know this classic tale, so it’s fun to see it being told in a movie type setting. This is definitely my favorite Scholastic Storybook Treasure DVD currently.
