    One thought on “The Three Billy Goats Gruff”

    1. USED THIS BOOK IN RECEPTION YEAR, IT IS A TRADITIONAL TALE. THE CHILDREN REALLY ENJOYED THE THEME IT HAS THREE DIFFERENT SIZED BILLY GOATS AND NEED TO CROSS THE BRIDGE TO GET TO THE GREEN GRASS ACROSS OTHER THE SIDE AS THEY ARE HUNGRY AND THE SIDE THEY LIVE ON HAS NO GRASS LEFT. AS THE SMALLEST GOAT CROSSED THE TROL JUMPS OUT AND WANTS TO EAT THE GOAT BUT DECIDES TO WAIT AS THE GOAT TELLS HIM BY BROTHER IS COMING AND IS BIGGER. THE SECOND GOAT COMES ALONG AND SAYES THE SAME THING HIS BROTHER IS [...]

    2. A great traditional story re-written so that this version is much shorter than the original and is more 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 s [...]

    3. 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 [...]

    4. This version of the story is much shorter than the original and is more ideal for children. It is a classic fairytale from Norway and is many many years old.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.This classic story has been retold many [...]

    5. 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 [...]

    6. 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 more likely a metaphor for an adult stranger. If my child was being abducted I'd want them to kick and yell [...]

    7. The book is a good book, I enjoyed how the author got straight to the problem and the three billie goats had to figure out what to do. it gives the children a way to think outside the box because the last billie goat can't do what his brothers did. You could also get the children involved in figuring out a way to build a new bridge to get the the other side. you could use this book in language with the positions as under, over, across so many different rich words. Also, just use in critical thin [...]

    8. This is a wonderful story to get children to think about problem solving. It has rich vocabulary and engaging illusrtations. Children need practice to think about problem solving. The story is also funny and children love funny.I would use this book in the classroom to discuss positional words. I would have my own bridge, give a child a gaot and ask him/her to place the goat on, over, above, below, under and beside the bridge.

    9. This story is a great traditional story that tells the adventure of three billy goats and the big, bad troll. This could be used during a unit on introducing traditional/mythic stories, and what are some ways people have gotten out of problems.

    10. an interesting rendition the short story of three billy goats and a brige and how expecting more then you can handel

    11. Great rhyming book that teaches kids to try and try again. I remember this book from my childhood years and was always a fun read.
