The Three Snow Bears
By Jan Brett
Most enjoyed by Pre-K through 2nd graders

Here is the story of Goldilocks and the three bears but isntead of being in the woods, this version takes place in the Arctic. While the polar bears are out for a stroll to let their breakfast cool, a curious little Inuit girl named Aloo-ki wanders into their house, the biggest igloo she's ever seen. Youngsters will enjoy this familiar tale told with polar bears and sled dogs and lots of snow.

Jan Brett uses her traditional illustration style of including side panels on each page to give a hint of what's to come or what action is going on elsewhere. It makes a fun guessing game to see if you, the reader, can predict what will happen next. Enjoy this frosty tale!
