Synopsis: (from the publisher) "What a sweet child," says a newcomer in town about Goldilocks. "That's what you think," a neighbor replies, for Goldilocks is one of those naughty little girls who does exactly as she pleases--even if that means sampling the three bears' porridge, breaking Baby Bear's chair, and sleeping in his bed.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  The Bears have a lot of books. What books do you think they read? Design the book covers and titles.
•  Make character hats and re-enact the story.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
