It’s National Porridge Day! Have Young Readers Sample Some with a Wonderfully Warming Serving of James Marshall’s “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.”
Today is National Porridge Day. And Snuggery readers, I cannot think of a better way to celebrate it than with a picture book homage by James Marshall to that blonde bouncy curled home invader in search of a bowl of porridge whose name is…Goldilocks!
His Caldecott Honor Medal Award winning retelling is wry, with art that is as bouncy bright as Ms. Goldilocks’ locks!
If your young reader is new to this telling of a age-old tale of a young girl’s chance encounter with a trio of bruins over a bowl of porridge that is….”just right,” please enjoy this read aloud below of James Marshall’s cunningly cute rendering of “Goldilock’s and the Three Bears!
Enjoy the story and make it a better read over a bowl of warm porridge.
