Tip for Telling
Before I start the story I usually hand out 3 coloured flowers – one to a kid at the front, one to the middle and one at the back of the audience, so I can walk thru the forest as I collect/sing.
For ‘flowers’ I’ve used different coloured pencil cases, marker pens .. whatever was to hand. Iput my wolf puppet at the back of the audience and through the story work/walk my way towards it.
This is definitely an American folktale and you can find many versions online.
