Goldilocks and the Three Bears by
Jan Brett At Her Best
Children find the story of Goldilocks delightful for so many reasons.
Theres a trespassing little girl, for starters, who barges into the bears
house uninvited and not only snoops around, but eats the bears food! The
suspense of wondering whether shell get caught only adds to the thrill of
the trespassing itself, and the repeated lines about the three bears with
their three distinct voices, bowls, chairs, and beds further endear this tale
to the preschool set. In Jan Bretts Goldilocks, the bears and the slightly
audacious flaxen-haired heroine all sport traditional (Black Forest?)
costumes with detailed embroidery, and the wooden furniture is carved
with bears, birds, and flowers. (Intricate borders--carved wooden panels in
this book--are Jan Bretts special signature.) Brett is the illustrator of many
well-known folk tales, fairy tales, and poems, such as The Mitten and
Edward Lears The Owl and the Pussycat. Of her exquisite interpretation of
this beloved story, Booklist writes, This is perfection. (Ages 3 to 6)
Personal Review: Goldilocks and the Three Bears by Jan Brett
My older sister had kids way before I did, so when I was pregnant with my
first baby, she gave me some of her family's favorite books as a starter
library for my new family.
It was one of the nicest things you could do for a booky person like me!
One of her favorites was Jan Brett, and I can see why. There is so much
going on in a Jan Brett book.
You can read Goldilocks as a straight story book, words and pictures, and
enjoy it very well.
You can go back to the beginning and hunt for little mice in the woodcuts
on every page, and watch as they plant and tend crocus bulbs that will turn
into the flowers Goldilocks is collecting when she discovers the three
You can look for "live" mice on every page, and act out their emotions as
they enjoy the story.
You can guess each one of the three bears' favorite things by looking at
their colors and motifs all through the story. Papa bear likes yellow things
and bumblebees; Mama bear likes red things and strawberries, and Baby
bear likes blue things and mushrooms.
Every page is loaded with clues as to what comes next -- your child can tell
you the next part of the story before you turn the page.
The illustrations are extraordinary. This is my favorite Jan Brett book.
Enjoy it with your family.
