I am a teacher of English for second language, and with little children, I use stories and often adapt them to their level.

The Three Little Pigs:

The first little pig built his house of straw.

Little pig, little pig, Let me come in.

No! No! No! Not by the hair of my chinny chinny chin chin,

Then I will blow your house in.

The wolf blew like a cyclone.

The house of straw became a heap of dried grass.



Little pig, little pig, Let me come in.

No! No! No! Not by the hair of my chinny chinny chin chin,

Then I will burn your house down.

The house of sticks became charred.


Little pig, little pig, Let me come in.

No! No! No! Not by the hair of my chinny chinny chin chin,

Then I will climb down from your chimney and eat you up.

The little pigs had a copper cauldron of boiling water.

Then big bad wolf fell into the cauldron.


My kids love this story, especially when I come to the "No! No! No! Not by the hair of my chinny chinny chin chin," You see, my married name is CHIN, and the children think it is very funny to have a surname like Chin.

I loved how unexpectedly personal that story was for you, and your kid's reaction.

The pictures were perfect.

chin, chan, chen, Tan, Ting, Ding are all the same surnames for the Mandarin CHEN. This is why it is one of the most popular surnames of the Chinese people. It is spelt differently according to the different dialects.
