Sick of books about bears?
Is your library shelf piling up with bears eating honey? Bears going on walks or bears getting cranky?
Then you’ll love this book!
Teachers who are looking into traditional or fractures fairytales will love this book as a great springboard to encourage creativity and problem solving when it comes to bears.
Can you imagine if the three bears weren’t in the Goldilocks story? Would Goldilocks still eat porridge? Would the setting still be in the woods? Would there still be bears and beds and a scary ending?
Children will love listening to the fourth wall being broken (another great lesson springboard) and wonder why bears are often chosen as a lead role.
So what did we do in our classroom with Kindergarten?
Children chose to either draw a story without bears ( goldilocks and the three lemurs) or draw things bears do in stories that they don’t normally do (another great lesson about anthropomorphism!!!)
You’ll love this book – story and illustrations!
