A surprisingly heartwarming tale about anthropomorphic bears and the evening a magical elderly gentleman broke into their home.
Adrienne Furness
In this book, Santa takes the place of Goldilocks, and the bears are eating gingerbread instead of porridge. Baby Bear sees signs of Santa while the bears are on their walk, and Santa leaves all kinds of Santa-things strewn about their house. It's fun for kids to be able to see what Mama and Papa bear are missing. It's a nice book to share with 4-6 year olds.

In this clever take of the classic story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the three bears make gingerbread and then leave for a winter walk. Upon returning home they find Santa’s clothes strewn through the house before finding their tree full of presents and catching a glimpse of Santa as he takes off flying in his sleigh.

This is such a cute idea for a story. A retelling of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, in which Santa plays the role of Goldilocks. Santa leaves a trail of clothing through the house as the bears wonder "who sat in my chair," etc. I do wish the ending was different. I did not understand why Santa left the house with out his clothes. I would have liked it if the Bears helped Santa get dressed.

My daycare kids (4 and under) loved this twist on the story of Goldilocks. I loved reading it (over and over) as well. Even though they know the ending there is still mystery and suspence with each reading. It'll definitely be a Christmas favorite that I'll pull out each year.

2016- 4 years old. Loves, loves, loves!
Loved it in 2014 - was a favorite that year. Still liked this year, but not as much as last.

Cute spin on Goldilocks, but felt more forced than the Three Bears Halloween. Doesn't really make sense why Santa would leave his clothes all over their house, but a cute story regardless.

Very cute riff on the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears series. The kids really get into finding Santa in the story. I would definitely read t his again.

Fractured fairytale. Santa breaks in and eats their gingerbread cookies instead of porridge and must have taken a nap in baby bears bed. He also leaves presents under the tree.

A fun retelling of the Goldilocks story, but this time it's Santa who visits the bears' house while they go on a walk to wait for the gingerbread cookies to cool.

Obviously parallels Goldielocks with a visit from Santa Claus. Not sure why he took off and left his clothes?

The three bears make gingerbread cookies and go for a walk to wait for them to cool. Just like Goldi-locks and the three bears, except it's Santa.

Day 2: I loved asking them halfway through.... Does this book remind you of another story about three bears? Cute book.... they asked to hear it two more times so it's a winner.
