This is a much more modern version of the story and you will notice that Goldilocks does not have curly hair. I wonder if she decided to straighten her hair? You will love the illustrations and the rich vocabulary in this story.
Now come the less traditional tales that you might not know about:
I adore this version. Papa Bear never gets around to fixing Baby Bear's chair (sounds like my husband) so the bear family goes shopping for a new chair for him. This provides you with an amazing opportunity to talk about describing words and to have children draw a picture of a chair they would love to have. The story ends with a twist and a gift from Goldilocks!
Jan Brett changes the setting for this version and for those of you who did Artic animals with your little ones, this is the perfect version for making connections to that learning.Goldilocks is an Inuit girl .The illustrations are gorgeous and typical of Jan Brett's wonderful work. I have not read this to my class yet but it is certainly on my list.
