Wolf’s coming!, by Joe Kulka

This picture book is a fun, fast-paced, rhyming twist on the classic tale of a wolf! Around our house it is referred to as “Taylor’s favourite!”, after one of my daughters’ pre-school daycare classmates who just couldn’t get enough of this book! For children who are a little bit older, and able to manage a little bit of suspense in their stories, try adding a bit of vocal tension and pace your reading to make this wonderful book one that will receive demands of “again!, again!”. It has a birthday party ending which resonates with children.

I’d suggest your audience for this book is a little bit older (4-6 years), or who have been exposed to many types of stories. Some children find the suspense element just a bit too overwhelming. Enjoy!
