The Three Bears

The Three Bears

by Paul Galdone

In this irresistible children's classic, Galdone gives a new generation of readers a large scale, entertaining look at Little Wee Bear, Middle-Sized Bear, Great Big Bear, and one of our favorite story time characters: Goldilocks! Graphically interesting, the text appears respectively sized in "Little Wee," "Middle-Sized" and "Great Big" characters, cleverly differentiating each bear's speech.

Young audiences will delight in this tale of how a little girl named Goldilocks takes pleasure in making herself at home — in the bears' home, that is! The text is light and humorous, and this book presents educators with a large, brightly illustrated visual to read to multitudes of interested listeners at one time. An old tale redone with contemporary charm, this book is definitely a "Great Big" winner to add to any child's collection of classic storybooks.
