Goldilocks and the Three Bears (revised, 2nd edition)
The traditional story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears is retold with gorgeous illustrations. The book gives a little bit of background as to why Goldilocks is in the woods. It also clears up where she goes after she leaves the bears’ house.
I like the clarification of where Goldilocks is from. I think having her be a child with the traveling circus, going to pick wildflowers in the woods, and getting lost was the perfect beginning. I appreciated that the bears taught Goldilocks something instead of just growling or chasing her off like in other versions.
Wow! What gorgeous illustrations! There are such exquisite details and comforting colors that I feel are perfect for this classic tale. My favorite scene is the three chairs. I love that the illustrations show Mama Bear’s chair is wobbly because it has been fixed. I can tell the illustrator took great care in getting the scenes just right.
My kids, three and six loved this book. My youngest really liked the bears and Goldilocks. She really liked the details on the chairs. Age Recommendation: three to eight-year-olds.
