Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems

Once again there is a picture book in the house that has me pulling books out of unsuspecting visiting grandmother’s hands in order to replace it with this one. Because if you are visiting this week and you are only going to read one book to the girls, this is the one you want to read.

Of course this is a retelling of the classic Goldilocks story. ย I’m sure you remember her, she’s that blond girl that never “listened to anyone or anything.” And while I can practically guaranteeย adults and children alike will enjoy this book, if you can work on your evil Norwegian Dinosaur laugh you’ll really bring extra life to the story.

Would I recommend it? Yes! Mo Willems has many good books but I think this is one of his best.

    That sounds like an awesome book! I think we need some new books around my household because I’m tired of reading ‘going to bed book’ every single day because Lilly insists it’s the best book ever ๐Ÿ˜‘

      As in “The sun has set not long ago, now everybody goes below to take a bath in one big tub with soap all over scrub scrub scrub?” – We’ve read that one lots too! And she has a point- it’s pretty darn good! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Oh my god I can recite that book in my sleep! Don’t get me wrong, I love Sandra Boynton books, but there’s only so many times you can read the same book before you go bonkers ๐Ÿ˜‚

          Agreed on all counts! And it’s been at least a year or more since that was a regular at bedtime and I think I still recite it all- those words stick! ๐Ÿ˜€

    When you are ready to move on to another book (or two), try “A Hungry Lion or A Dwindling Assortment of Animals” by Lucy Ruth Cummins or “Is That Wise Pig?” by Jan Thomas.
    Adults that read the same book over and over and over again because of the local tyrant’s demands are the best. ๐Ÿ™‚
