Goldilocks and the three (snow) bears

January 7, 2010 at 5:24 pm

The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett; published by Scholastic, New York, 2007.

Jan Brett’s retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears is endearing, entertaining and educational. We get a glimpse of Eskimo life in an igloo. As always, the watercolor and gouache artwork highlights the story. Her use of margins to summarize and foretell keeps all eyes focused on the pages for read-alouds.

Brett’s website includes a plethora of related activities including streaming video that can supplement the reading of this tale.
