Reviews - What do customers think about The Three Little Javelinas (Reading Rainbow Book)?
Beautiful illustrations, great take on an old story Mar 12, 2008
The illustrations in this are clever, detailed, and beautiful. It's a very fun twist on an old favorite story.
A retelling of the "Three Little Pigs" story with a tumbleweed twist! Jan 6, 2008
Who hasn't heard of or read the classic story for children, The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf? In this retelling, the pigs are javelinas, and the wolf is the trickster, the coyote. Instead of houses made of straw, sticks, and bricks, the houses are made of tumbleweed, cactus ribs, and adobe bricks.
The ending won't surprise you. There's a reason coyotes howl like they mean it.
This is a cute retelling, with gorgeous illustrations by Jim Harris. There's a lot of opportunity to put some vocal variety into your reading when you have that favorite kid sitting by you. And if you like this type of retelling, don't forget to look up the book The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig!

This story has a multitude of educational features included in an updated story of 'three little critters' and their adventures facing adversity-together- with a good ending for the three little ones- and justice delivered to the 'bad guy'-
Great gift idea and a great book Jan 6, 2007
Living in the southwest this is one of my favorite baby gifts to give. This and a little stuffed Javelina from the toy store make such a cute pair.
