This fairy tale is about a mother goat and 7 kids. She warns them before she leaves not to open the door to anyone but her, and she sings a special song when she comes back. The wolf mimics the song, gets the baby goats to open the door, and swallows them. The mother goat comes back, hears what happened (from the one kid who hid in the stove), and goes to find the wolf. She tricks the wolf into jumping over a fire some hunters left behind, he bursts open, and all the baby goats jump out.
This is a very common fairy tale in Russia, you can find it in collections of fairy tales all over. But in this version, as acted out by the oldest group in the preschool, for the audience of the other preschool classes (and this doting parent), it has a much kinder ending.
The baby goats (including E) were really cute. In this version, the wolf (also played by a kid), puts the baby goats in a sack, and when the mommy goat (played by her class teacher) catches the wolf and demands the baby goats back, the wolf says he just wanted to play, so the goats forgive him for kidnapping them, and they all sing a happy song at the end.
