I love the idea of the story about three Billy goats that long to get to the other side of a bridge to eat the green grass The bridge is guarded by a troll who gets deceived by the goats in promise of eating the biggest of the three goats However the biggest goat charges the troll and gets rid of it.

What did you think of the book It s an interesting story about three Billy goats that want to get to the other side of a bridge to eat the green grass The bridge is guarded by a troll who is tricked by the goats in promise of eating the biggest of the three goats However the biggest goat charges the troll and gets rid of it.
What resonated with you The pictures are very colorful and it will keep the interest of students It is also a good book for children to read alone or one that adults can read to children.
Where were you most drawn into the story The biggest goat and how he had courage and wasn t intimidated by the troll.
Where was your transaction with the text the most powerful When the biggest goat decided to cross the bridge.
What will you carry with you from the reading experience It is a classic tale I think students especially boys would enjoy reading this book.
Would you recommend the book to others and why Yes It isn t like your typically traditional tales about princess, castles, etc it s about goats and how they are hungry haha It s totally different from books kids typically read.
How might you use the book in your classroom Talk about bullying.
The three billy goats are looking for a better place where they can find sweet grass they can eat They saw a field on the other side of the bridge and are about to cross it A troll lived underneath the bridge and eats anyone who is trying to cross The first goat and the second manages to cross the bridge, persuading the troll to wait for his brother who will make him smile and he s much, much bigger and fatter than I The third goat pushes the troll over the bridge and in the water and also crosses the river The illustrations and the language are simple so the book is ideal for children from the age of 4.
I ve seen another review that criticises the biggest goat for using violence to solve a problem rather than outwitting the troll She felt this gave the wrong message about playground behaviour Sigh.
Well, nursery tales tend to have a message, I accept that don t get into bed with a wolf etc but I don t think the goats are warning children about the perils of school bullies The troll is likely a metaphor for an adult stranger If my child was being abducted I d want them to kick and yell and, yes, head butt all they can to get to safety.
A great traditional story re written so that this version is much shorter than the original and is ideal for younger children With its fun rhythm and rhyme it will engage the children straight away and a very enjoyable read I have seen this book being used in a classroom using talk for writing where they firstly learn the story and use actions and pictures to remember Next, they retell the story but change it slightly e.
g the characters or what they are trying to get to on the other side The illustrations are very fun and engaging with the use of colours used and obvious expressions showing how the characters are be feeling You could also take a picture from this book and talk about inference and how might the characters be feeling before we read it and see if we were right.
A classic well done.
