The Three Bears ABC: An Alphabet Book by Grace Maccarone –OPTIONAL

Maccarone, Grace and Illustrated by Hibbert, Hollie The Three Bears ABC: An Alphabet Book 32 pgs. Albert Whitman & Company, 2013. $12.67.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G ;  Violence: G.
The traditional story of Goldilocks and the 3 bears re-told in a creative A-Z format. For example: “G is for a girl named Goldilocks”.  
This was a fun and creative way to present this story. It actually worked out really well –even those tricky letters! I liked the artwork, it was bright and colorful and featured interesting angles. However, the art did look a bit blurry and overexposed, like taking a photograph of your TV as it plays a cartoon and in most of shots Goldilocks looks like she has been at the tanning salon one too many times.
