Have you ever wondered where your childhood stories that came from? While they change from a local, international, and global distance we’re here to talk about childhood stories that start off in the U.S. Interestingly, the majority of them all begins on the farm.
Three Little Piggies
The three little piggies nursery rhyme is a story that dates back to the 1800s. It was originally published in London and New York newspapers by the author James H. Phillips. The story began to become famous and was published in children’s storybooks across Europe and eventually in the Americas.
There is some truth to this story, while the big bad wolf did not blow the little piggies house down, wolves do eat little piggies. The grey wolf has a notorious reputation for eating wild hogs and boars. Today, the grey wolf kills 50-80 boars in one year. Imagine in the 1800s when there was more wildlife. These killings commonly take place in Italy, but wild wolves are beginning to expand across Oregon. So, if you’re a pig farmer be careful, the big bad wolf will come down and eat your little piggies.
