Three bearsThis is a really fun retelling of the Goldilocks story beginning with Goldilocks desperate for attention and likes The whole story is told in a constant rhyme which I really enjoyed as it really made the whole story both fun and the message clear to understand Like many oung people and older people too Goldilocks becomes desperate to be liked on Instagram so she takes pictures of as many things as possible But when she heads over to the house where the three bears live she causes a lot of damage just like in the original tale and decides to share that damage by taking pictures selfies and sharing them for the whole world to seeincluding three bearsI like the fact that this story is cautioning children against being so free and open to taking pictures of themselves or their lives and sharing everything online The bears know who caused all the damage to their home precisely because Goldilocks took selfies when doing them and in the end her actions catch up to her The story is obviously trying to warn children about the many dangers of sharing too much personal information online especially selfie pictures as Selected Short Stories you never know who is watching or what troubleou could be in While the story features the original tale Goldilocks the ending is different and a striking one which I liked I have seen a reviewer say they didn t like the shock ending but I don t think it s that shocking and instead it s a great ending that again warns kids of the dangers of sharing online without sounding too scaryThe ending is good it rhymes so well and I will add a spoiler to say that Goldilocks does face punishment for what she did but I like the added part that points out that things sent out online don t always go away That message is one that children really do need to understand in this world today where so many people are so open to sharing their entire lives online The pictures are really good I actually like the style of illustration it s very engaging fun and I like the way the bears look The funny images do make the story all the fun to readI really do like this book the rhyme is really good and fun and engaging all on its own and the illustrations give a fun feel to the whole tale but it s the message behind the story that really makes me like this book so much Children are taught to be careful about sharing too much online but it s done in a great and fun way using the traditional Goldilocks story The book feels so fun to read on its own and despite the obvious safety message whi.

Ch is good it s still ultimately just a fun new take on the Goldilocks story and one I have really enjoyed Thanks to Andersen Press for a free copy for review This book is amazing for linking to internet safety This book teaches children the importance of being careful about what Ten Minutes to Fall in Love you post online and teaches this in a fun child friendly way I applaud the idea getting children to think before they share online but I m not sure this story will have any impact Rather than seeing Goldilocks arrestedpunishedfriendless for her actions I wish it had shown appropriate ways for her to seek friendship validation Book Reviewed on wwwwhisperingstoriescom Goldilocks is a cautionary tale about aoung girl craving attention online The book is told in a friendly rhyming style and features a oung Goldilocks first trying to impress people with her selfies then by capturing funny moments and sharing them with her followers Eventually she feels that she needs to up her game and enters the woods where she finds a cottage in which three bears liveAny book that teaches children to be cautious online is a good idea and should be used to educate children about how not to use social media and how it can all go wrong very uicklyI am a little unsure whether having the story told in a picture book is actually aiming for the right audience as my understanding is that picture books tend to be read by children in the 3 6 ear old range and I don t believe this book is aimed at children so Open City young I do know that social media channels have a minimum age of 13 for their users Yes I knowounger children are using them I m just not convinced many kids ounger than 6 will beThe illustrations are amusing and do capture the plot perfectly plus I like all the images including Goldilock s mobile phone and the posts she is putting online as this gives the reader of an understanding of what kind of pictures she is postingI m also not comfortable with what happened to Goldilocks when it was discovered she had broken into the bear s cottage ate their food broke their furniture and took amusing photos of herself committing a crime I don t think the punishment would be enough to deter a child from thinking that what she did was good for capturing pictures to show to her followers I was shocked that the book ends uite abruptly too I feel that the story still had to tell and educateOverall the book is fun it involves a classic tale that most children will know and uses it to inform children of how not to use social media.
