Product Description

Review

This story will enthral and capture the attention of all children. (Nursery Education)

In this touchy feely version of a classic scarey story, children must lift the flaps to search the dark, dark house inm the dark, dark wood. Under each flap there's a surprise but nothing like the BIG one that pops up right when the story ends. Against a mostly black background, the bold colours of the flaps are irresistable - you just have to peep! (Book Ahead 0-7)

This book is a lively retelling of the traditional rhyme, with strongly patterned structures and flaps to lift which guarantee that the children in your setting will love hearing this book time and time again. (Nursery World)

Great For ELLs and Young Readers 29 Jun. 2009
By L. Foxx - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a first grade teacher, I have found this book to be excellent for young readers. It has repetitive, predictable text and is an interactive book. The text structure is a great support for English Language Learners. Students and other young learners can even write their own stories using the format presented in this fun, engaging children's book.

I love this book and enjoy teaching with it in October. The only down side is that I wish I had purchased the hardcover.
