"Once upon a time, there lived a little girl named Goldilocks, who was very, very good, except that sometimes she forgot to do things that her mother told her to do. Yes she did... "

But worse is when she forget's not to do what she is told not to do. For sometimes that can lead to much more serious what happened the day of this story. McClintock's art, that is reminscent of 19th Century children's book art, perfectly compliments Aylesworth's playful, original, and very involving rendition of the classic Three Bears story.

This story is about Goldilocks, a little girl who forgets to follow the directions given by her mother. She asks to go out into the meadow to pick flowers. Her mother cautions her not to go into the forest because a family of bears live there. She follows a butterfly in the woods, forgetting that her mother asked that she not go there. Once there, she discovers a house and out of lack of respect for others homes, she enters. She finds three bowls of porridge. The first is too hot, the second is too cold. However, the third bowl is just right. She walks around the house and finds three chairs and ofcourse, the first two are not quite to her liking but she likes the third one just fine. She is still not done exploring the cottage and decided to take a nap. Again, the first two beds are not quite right but the third bed is perfect. She falls asleep only to be awakened by the three bears. She is frightened and runs off from the cottage. After this experience, she learns not to forget what her mother tells her.

In this beautifully illustrated book, that practically tells the story with the pictures alone, Goldilocks is forgetful and overly curious, and that's what leads to all her problems. She's out for a walk in the field when she encounters the Bear's house. With each act of trespassing, she "forgets" what her mother told her. However, when she wakes up in the Little Bear's bed, she suddenly remembers that her mother told her not to talk to strangers, and she does just that! Her memory has improved since.

This story has no modern twist to it. It is the same as when I read it as a child. It starts out with Goldilocks wondering through the woods chasing butterflies and birds and she comes upon the bear's house. She enters the house and tryes all three porride bowls, then she moved to the chairs, and finally she tryes the beds and falls asleep. While Goldilocks was doing this the bears were taking a walk, once they returned home they noticed their food wsa eaten and baby bears chair was broke, and when they went upstairs they found Goldilocks in the bed. She woke up and ran all the way home. She never forgot to listen again.I liked this story, I wish it would have had a twist to it like the Three Pigs book. It was still a good story.I would have this book in my classroom library and I would read it aloud. You can change your voice and make it real interesting or you could even have them act it out. It would be good with a bear unit.

A gorgeous edition, the prettiest of the lot. Goldilocks definitely comes off spoiled in this version.
