Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
To pass time while their breakfast cools down, mama, papa, and baby bear decide to go for a walk. While they are away, a girl named Goldilocks enters their house and makes herself at home. Everything that belongs to baby bear is just right for her. She sits in his chair, eats his porridge, and when the bears return home from their walk, they find Goldilocks fast asleep in baby bear's bed. She wakes to see the three bears standing over her and makes a quick getaway out the window and is never seen again. Rob Hefferan's colorful illustrations truly bring to life the well-known tale of Goldilocks' encounter with the three bears. Children anticipate the unique, yet familiar voices of the three bears that are brought to life by the reader. The story was first published in 1948 but did not receive its golden spine from Little Golden Books until 2003. In a school setting it would be a useful teaching tool for units about bears, manners, and size recognition. 2003 (orig. 1948), GoldenBooks/Random House, Ages 2 to 4.
