Approaches:
This truly is one of my favourite stories ever. You can read it as a one-off, a story as a treat, or you could do base your teaching of colours for instance on it.
An essential accessory for every "Le loup qui..." story is the Loup soft toy wich you can get here for £9.99 (https://www.little-linguist.co.uk/le-loup-peluche-wolf-plush-toy.html). Children adore him! I give it to one child and every time the word "loup" comes up they have to pass him to someone else near them. They all end of listening out for "loup" as they are so keen to make sure no one keeps it for longer than is necessary and they all get a go!!
As I read the story, I get the children to give me thumbs up if they think Loup is happy, thumbs down if he is not, or I ask them: "Heureux ou malheureux?".

Rationale:

Outcomes:
As well as benefiting from listening to/reading a fun story they can join in with, the children will be encouraged to think at the end about accepting themselves for who they are, which is what Loup does as he realises that trying to be someone he is not only makes him unhappy.
This book can help introduce or reinforce colours and days of the week.

Topics or themes:
Days of the week; colours; saying how you are feeling; accepting yourself for who you are.
