This story is about Goldie Locks throwing a tantrum because she's a picky eater and the bears give her some healthy food that she must eat without complain...strange.

This has been published as "Eat Your Veggies, Goldilocks" and I wish they would have stayed with the original, even though the content would still be awful. This is basically a retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears condensed to a small amount of pages with a weird tag on involving The Bears offering Goldilocks some healthy food which she takes without complaint. Bad.

Basically Goldilocks is a little brat who wants cookies for breakfast. Her mother says no and she runs away. She comes across the bears' house and proceeds to destroy it. The bears come home and make her clean up her mess and feed her "healthy" food. The story was OK. My daughter and I enjoyed the illustrations a lot more than the story.

Preachy message tacked awkwardly on the end of the traditional Goldilocks story.

This one could be either really fun to read to a group or really awful, depending on the reader and the group. The pictures are by far the best part. The story is essentially the traditional Goldilocks and the Three Bears until a ridiculously preachy bit at the end. It could be used for a fairy tale, bear, or food themed story time. If I don't find anything better, I will use it and focus with the kids on the humor.

This put a twist on the old nursery school story of Goldilocks. And even in the back of the book is a page of things for an adult to ask children. To get them to think and wonder about.

Goldilocks is very spoiled at the beginning of the book throwing her food on the floor and walls and screaming about it not being good. She wanting what she wanted to eat and not healthy stuff. She goes in the bears house and does all the things we're used to. BUT when the family comes home she is afraid they are

Very cute twist on the original Goldilocks and the 3 Bears story, by teaching lessons of healthy food and hard work
Hannah Tavner
One of the children at the holiday camp I worked at chose this book for me to read to her. When asked why she chose this version of Goldilocks, the child answers that she liked the front cover and that it reminded her of when she said to her parents that she didn't like vegetables. This story was surprisingly very similar to the original story, just with a twist on the ending. The version that we had picked up seemed to be a comprehension version with questions and discussion points at the end. ...more
