Children's Book Review: Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians

Goldie Socks: And the Three Libearians

Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians
Written by:  Jackie Mims Hopkins
Illustrated by:  John Manders
Published by: Upstart Books, 2007

* 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. 

Family Rating: 1 thumb up.
