Children's Book Review: Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians
Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians
Written by: Jackie Mims Hopkins

* My kids are very familiar with Goldie Locks and the Three Bears so when I saw this book at the library I thought that they'd enjoy it. In this story, there's a family of bears who are libearians. Goldi Socks, late for school one day takes a shortcut and discovers the bear family's cottage. Of course she goes inside and discovers tons of books! She first searches for a book that's just right, then she wants to look for a cozy place to read. When the bear family comes home for lunch and discover that someone's been into their books.....well, there's a surprise ending. I see this as a good book for teaching kids how to pick out an appropriate book, since Goldi uses the 5 finger rule to help her find a just-right reading book. The kids seemed to like it. I thought that it was okay.
