Goldie and the Three Bears 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

This is a book about a young girl named Goldie who knew exactly what she liked. She was very picky about certain things, even when it came to making friends. One day, she got off at the wrong bus stop. She wandered into an unlocked house where she found her favorite food, favorite book, and many other things she liked. When the three bears who lived there came home, they were not very happy to find a stranger in their house. However, the little girl bear and Goldie soon became friends.I would read this book to children in kindergarten through third grade. This is a good book to read at any time because it has to do with making new friends, which is something that can happen all the time.
