Approaches:
This book, like others in the series about Simon the rabbit, is very repetitive; the children will therefore love joining in with "au loup!" and "le petit lapin faisait ce qu'il voulait" when you read it to them for the 1st and the 2nd times. They will enjoy joining in with actions too in order to show that they know what is happening in the story.

Rationale:
This is the type of story which you can just read as a treat to a class or group of children; it doesn't have to take long but will leave good memories for sure!

Outcomes:
Older children could think of jobs or other things which they have to do but don't want to and could try to avoid doing by shouting "au loup!"; they can use their dictionaries to write them down; these will make up their own version of the story.

Topics or themes:
Family (papa, maman); moral of "The boy who cried wolf"; jobs in the house

Grammar:
The imperfect tense
