Book of the Week – Jan. 23, 2010
Hands down, the favorite of this week has been Jan Brett’s The Three Snow Bears.
This is a take on Goldilocks and the Three Bears, a fairytale which M has never heard. I have read several versions of Goldilocks, so I can’t remember if the bears are friendly in the original story or not-so-friendly. But in this one the three snow bears are nice, good bears who spend their morning saving a pack of sled dogs who are floating out on a large piece of ice (ice floe?); yet, they are not exactly welcoming of the little girl they find has been in their home while they were gone. It’s a good combination of knowing they are good… yet knowing they are still bears! It’s a fun story to read and M has asked for it daily.
