Reading level: K (read aloud)-2

The inside cover says that this book was retold from an English version of Goldilocks. McClintock uses the most vivid images in her illustrations. Although the story was written in 2003, many of the pictures have an older effect that really puts you into the story. Many of the pictures look like they are stamped on and they have a lot of natural colors. The literature written by Aylesworth is very cute and interesting. To begin the story, you are introduced to the traditional Goldilocks. She is a sweet and innocent girl and her only reason for entering the bear’s house is out of innocent curiosity. Then, the traditional story of Goldilocks breaking and testing out things in the house comes out. When the bears arrive home, Goldilocks is so afraid that she runs and runs home and never forgets again. There is not a lot of text per page, but it's written in an old English style that adds to the delicate nature of Goldilocks and makes you feel even more light-hearted about the fact that she has broken into the bear’s house.

Used as a read aloud for younger children and a possible read aloud or small group read for 3rd grade.
