Ideas for using this book in classroom or library and/or brief notes on curriculum connections/content learning standards/Common Core, etc.:
- Discuss folktales and its characteristics. Compare and contrast with other versions, for example, the one by Jan Brett. Notice how the illustrations set the tone for the book. Read Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems or Yours Truly, Goldilocks by Alma Flor Ada.
