Tale of Three Little Pigs And What We Learn From It

Three little pigs fairytale

The Three Little Pigs may be an old fairytale but it still holds valuable lessons for the generation today.

We here at Family Roberto value Family.  For us, family is first!  That’s why we pride ourselves in providing wholesome, exciting, and adventurous content for your kid’s screen time.  We don’t want to be just another channel to babysit young children.  Families are spending lots of time together in front of the TV these days, with 80% of parents saying they watch with their kids several times a week, and nearly half (44%) saying they watch together daily with their kids.

In our first blog, we begin with “The Three Little Pigs”, The story in its arguably best-known form appeared in English Fairy Tales by Joseph Jacobs, first published on June 19, 1890.

Here is a fun fact you can teach to your kids, whether you are a daycare provider, preschool, kindergarten- high school teacher, or homeschooling your little ones, children love fun facts.

“Fables are stories that are passed down, with a good lesson to be learned, and are about animals, plants, or forces of nature. Fairy tales are stories that are specifically for kids, involve magical characters, and usually have good characters and evil characters.

You see, our idea is simple.  We want to bring back the good ole days while maintaining a modern style in our 3-D animated stories.

Ruby, the narrator from Ruby’s Storytime begins the story of  3 little pigs who lived with their family.  As the little pigs grew up, they were taught by their parents to work and be self-sufficient.  That’s what we as parents want for our kids right?  We want our children to be independent thinkers and doers.  An excellent general once said “Until you spread your wings, you’ll have no idea how far you can fly”, Napoleon Bonaparte.  Well, that’s kinda what Mr. and Mrs. Pig wanted for their three little pigs.

The first little pig builds a house of straw, but a wolf blows it down and sends the first little pig running…  The second little pig builds a house of sticks, which the wolf also blows down and sends him running too. Each exchange between wolf and pig features phrases, namely:

“Little pig, little pig, let me come in.”
“No, not by the hairs on my chinny chin chin”,

“Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in.”[5]

The third little pig builds a house of bricks, which the wolf fails to blow down.  Finally, the infuriated wolf resolves to come down the chimney, whereupon the pig who owns the brick house has a big pot of soup in the fireplace. The wolf falls in and burns his tail on fire!  The wolf went running so fast back to the woods and never returned to bother those three little pigs again.

You may be wondering what the moral of this little story is.

The moral of Three Little Pigs is that hard work and perseverance pay off in the end. The first two pigs were lazy, and they did not want to work hard. They built their houses very easily and spent their time playing around but the third little pig took his time and worked very hard to build a house that would be safe for him and his siblings.  Oh! And remember to watch out for each other!  Especially your brothers and sisters…
