This Caldecott Medal-winning picture book begins placidly (and familiarly) enough, with three pigs collecting materials and going off to build houses of straw, sticks, and bricks. But, David Weisner then takes this visual narrative to a new level. This Bindle then challenges little engineers to learn through the process of experimentation, and trial and error while building houses that’ll protect pigs from the big, bad wolf with all the supplies needed to build homes of straw, sticks and brick.
