“F is for Forest. While their porridge cooled, the bears walked in the forest, where they sniffed fragrant flowers.” The classic tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears meets the alphabet in this fairy-tale-meets-concept-book story. Grace Maccarone cleverly alliterates Goldilocks’ tale from A to Z.

This is a cute alphabet book telling the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The letters are woven in so well it almost seems as the original story were meant to be highlighted by letter. The illustrations are bright, fun and funny while Goldilocks appears a little odd to me as her hair is bigger than she is and her skin is definitely darker than any golden blonde I’ve ever seen but all in all it’s vibrant and interesting to look at. This is a neat way to work on a fairy tale and the alphabet for early learners.
