Goldilock—kids' book rview
Share the story

I know what you might be thinking—oh, here we go, another book about Goldilocks. To be honest, we probably have about four or five different versions of the Goldilocks story in our home. 

But this version, written and beautifully illustrated by Ruth Sanderson, has a unique little twist at the end that I found sets it apart. 

Instead of showing Goldilocks escaping responsibility for unlawfully entering someone else’s house and helping themselves to whatever they find while unapologetically destroying property, this book’s ending is much more constructive and kind.
