The Three Cabritos
by Eric A. Kimmel
 

18-pages of activities for The Three Cabritos are available in the Kids Wings Serendipity Collection!

 

You know the traditional story of the Three Billy Goat's Gruff. Here's how it begins:

Once upon a time there were Three Billy Goats Gruff.

Their last name was Gruff.

They loved to eat nice green grass, but the green grass was on the other side of the bridge.

A great ugly troll lived under the bridge and waited for a plump tasty goat to trip trap across his bridge.

What if you sprinkled the traditional story with a touch of Spanish?

What if you moved the green grass across the bridge to Mexico?

What if the ugly troll under the bridge was an enormous
chupacabra, the goat sucker?

What if you added a touch of music to the story?

What if you put it into a big book with bright, funny illustrations?

You would have The Three Cabritos! a fun new book by Eric A. Kimmel!

What if you added fun activities for readers that would build skill and extend the fun? Then you'd have the Kids Wings Literature Guide for The Three Cabritos!
