The Three Little Pigs Book Review

The three little pigs is such a classic fairy tale that I remember fondly from my own childhood, it use to be one of my favourite bedtime stories. So when I was sent a gorgeous hardback slide and see copy, as part of the Parragon book buddies scheme I was overjoyed and was really looking forward to introducing it to my little two children. 

The book itself is rather thick and hard backed making It perfect for babies and toddlers to grab a hold of. I love books like these as they survive little ones chewing on them and as the pages are made of thick card they can't be ripped either, which is always a worry when you have young children. As with all the Parragon books we have read the illustrations are gorgeous and really bring the story to life. 


As this book is a slide and see book on each page their is a little pull out section which has pictures and parts of the story on. My one and two year old love these slide out pages and enjoy sliding them out and then putting them back as they are so easy to move up and down. I also think that the slide and see feature makes this book so much more interesting for little ones. 


Reading this story to my little two was so nice as it felt like I was introducing them to a part of my own childhood, my two year old already really enjoys this story and likes to huff and puff like the big bad wolf to try and blow the house down. I can really see this book quickly becoming a much loved bedtime story in are household, just like it was for me many years ago. 


If you have a baby or a toddler then I highly recommend this book as it will make a wonderful addition to any nursery bookcase collection. The three little pigs slide and see book has a RRP of £4.99 which I think is brilliant value, you can view more of the range on the Parragon website

Disclosure : We were sent this book as part of the Parragon Book Buddies scheme, however all views are my own.

  5. This looks great! I've been looking for a baby friendly version of The Three Little Pigs to go with out puppets. Think this might still have too many words though for little hands too impatient to turn the page for BookBairn. Soon though!

    1. The three little pigs is such a classic tale. My one year old is normally too impatient to turn the page but the slide out bits seem to occupy him so I can finish the page xx
