Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Goldilocks. She went for a walk in the forest. It was a lovely day. You never saw a bluer sky! Noshowers likely! Pretty soon, she came upon a house. She knocked, and when no one answered, she walked right in.
At the table in the kitchen there were three bowls of porridge. Goldilocks was hungry. Shetook a few bites from the first bowl. Now there were fewer bites than there had been!
“This porridge is too hot!” she exclaimed.
So she tasted the porridge from the second bowl.
“This porridge is toocold,” she said.
So she tasted the last bowl of porridge.
“Ahhh, this porridge is just right,” she said happily, and she ate it all up. She thoroughly enjoyed it!
After this she decided she wasfeeling a little tired. So she walked into the living room where she saw three chairs. Goldilocks sat in the first chair to rest her feet.
“This chair is too big!” she exclaimed.
So she sat in thesecond chair.
“This chair is too big, too!” she whined.
So she tried the last and smallest chair.
“Ahhh, this chair is just right,” she sighed. But just as she settled down into the chair to rest, itbroke into pieces!
Goldilocks was very tired by this time, so she went upstairs to the bedroom. She could hardly carry herself up the stairs! “I think I’ll just lie down,” she said. (There was amirror in the room, but she didn’t notice it.) She lay down in the first bed, but it was too hard. Then she lay in the second bed, but it was too soft. Then she lay down in the third bed, and it was justright. Goldilocks fell asleep.
As she was sleeping, the three bears came home.
“Someone’s been eating my porridge,” growled Papa bear.
“Someone’s been eating my porridge,” said Mama bear.“Someone’s been eating my porridge, and they ate it all up!” cried Baby bear.
“Someone’s been sitting in my chair,” growled Papa bear.
“Someone’s been sitting in my chair,” said Mama bear.
