Do you ever use voices when you read to your kids? My boys used to love listening to me read the Three Billy Goats Gruff when they were younger.
There’s just something about the goats trip-tramping across the bridge that got them giggling every time. Then, when the troll came along (with me speaking in a low, troll-ish voice), they’d get to laughing even more.
If your little ones love the Three Billy Goats Gruff, as well, they’ll love these hands-on activities that go along with the story. And, they’ll love the printable I created to go along with the story!
