    Anybody know of any stories where people tell the same story from different points of views? I am pretty sure some of my students don't realize that there is more than one point of view, and that other people have different thoughts than they have.

    An example is the difference between The Three Little Pigs and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.

    Yeah they are called fractured fairy tales - if you google that it will give you some websites about it and there are books out there on the different point of view - I think there are several just on The Three Little Pigs as well as Cinderalla.

    How about:

    - The Tortoise & the Hare

    - The Ant & the Grasshopper

    - Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs (ea dwarf had their own belief of how to live life based on their names plus Snow White & the witch!)



    Those are the ones i can think of off the top of my head. I'd have to look more up.

    If you are looking for more advanced chapter books, I HIGHLY recommend Captain Hook and Through the Looking Glass.

    Believe it or not, I use these with my AP kids to teach POV. The essays on the AP exams require students to understand POV in using documents. I also use called (I think) The Wolf and the Pancakes. It is my favorite because all the characters are in this book.
