We turned this into a simple play with the children being all the animals - we used hats, puppets and props to bring this story to life.

This book is really fun. We learned the song, and my 2YO likes to sing along with the chorus while his daddy says the wolf's lines. We make the whole thing into a game - I really recommend the book to parents of young children.

Wolf's to busy getting dressed to eat right now. So, the animals play in the forest "while the wolf is not around". Fun book for a clothing theme as the wolf calls out the names of the clothing as he puts them on. A fun surprise ending when we find out what wolf has for breakfast after getting dressed.
