Young children have long loved "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," the irresistible story of a little girl who audaciously trespasses on the property of a family of bears. In The Three Bears Rhyme Book, Jane Yolen takes a closer look at the bears, from their breakfast porridge (with Goldilocks peeking in the window) to a garden visit, a walk in the rain, naptime, and other adventures that lead to bath, books, and bedtime. Preschoolers just might notice the similarities between Baby Bear's life and their own! Jane Dyer's engaging full-page illustrations in colored pencil and watercolor make The Three Bears Rhyme Book a delightful read-aloud experience. Don't be surprised if you share this book with your child and hear "Read it again!" as you turn the last page. (Ages 2 to 6)From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 4 The 16 poems offered here as sume that Goldilocks and the three bears maintain a close friendship in spite of their initial encounter, which is not mentioned. The verses describe familiar activities such as taking a walk, eating porridge, having a birthday party, and going out in the rain. Some of the poems explore, in a reassuring way, common feelings: getting mad, being afraid of nighttime monsters, feeling too old to take a nap. The narra tor's voice varies from poem to poem, with the little bear's point of view most often represented. Although these changes are jarring, the majority of the verses will appeal to children. The illustra tions are executed in bright watercolor and pencil; flaxen-haired Goldie and her three elaborately-clothed friends often look as if they belong on a greeting card. The pages, with their elaborate back grounds and varied framing devices, rein force the book's sweet look. America is captivated with everything related to bears, and this volume capitalizes on that interest; libraries can better serve children with additional copies of the most popular verisons of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and forget purchasing this nones sential item.
