The story of The Three Little Pigs - short summary

This story is about three little pigs and the big bad wolf. The pigs build houses from straw, sticks and bricks. The first pig builds his house out of straw, the second little pig's house was built with sticks and the third pig builds his house out of bricks. When the wolf comes knocking on the pigs' doors, the pigs see the wolf coming and all believe their house is strong enough to protect them.

The three pigs all have different experiences when the wolf comes knocking. When the wolf comes to the straw house, he blows it down easily. When the wolf visits the stick house, it takes a bit more effort but he still manages to get in. He then goes to the third pig's house, which is made of bricks. No matter how hard he huffs and puffs, the third pigs' house won't be blown down.

What is the moral of the story?

The moral in the Three Little Pigs story is that persistence pays off. The third pig considered the options and chose the material that would take the most amount of effort and time to build his house, however this pays off because it is the most effective at keeping the wolf out. Whereas the first two pigs spent the least amount of effort and time to build their houses and unfortunately were not able to keep the wolf out of their houses!
