This is a lovely story which in the first instance can be read and shared with a whole class as everyone can join in the chorus. The teacher could then read it again and the pupils will also have to join in with actions to show what the "wolf" is doing.

You can use this book either as an introduction to daily routine or to clothes in French; alternatively you can use it to reinforce the vocabulary, in context, at the end of a unit of work.

The children will particularly enjoy this story and the humour in it if they first learn the original nursery rhyme, "Promenons-nous dans les bois" as this book is a new take on the traditional song.

Topics or themes:
It is best used when the children are learning about daily routine and/or clothes as well as typical French nursery rhymes.

Reflexive verbs, possessive adjectives (mon/ma/mes).

The pupils may want to act out the nursery rhyme in small groups of 3 or more and adapt to use their own favourite phrases for daily routine or clothes, with props.

How much time required:
can be used for a stand alone lesson or referred to over up to a term.
