Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs 金发姑娘和三头恐龙 (jīn fā gū niáng hé sān tóu kǒng lóng )
Another triumph by the brilliant Mo Willems! This original take on the fairy-tale classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears has been masterfully translated into Chinese & will leave your family “roaring”. Once upon a time, there were three hungry dinosaurs: Papa Dinosaur, Mama Dinosaur and a Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway. One day, for no particular reason, they decided to tidy their house nice and neat, make their beds all cozy and comfortable, & prepare delicious chocolate pudding of varying temperatures. They placed their chairs just so and went “someplace else”. Let's be clear, they were definitely not setting up a trap for some succulent, poorly supervised little girl called Goldilocks who may wander by. Definitely not!
Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me": Children age 3+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka or a caregiver.
"Read by myself": The simple, limited text per page and the prevalence of common, repetitive language from daily life, makes this series a good choice for beginning readers ages 3-7.
Option to pair with Luka:
Consider adding Luka, the reading robot, to your order. Luka reads all Chinese books included in this collection.
Set Luka in front of a book, and it will read aloud any page your child turns to-- creating a unique, independent physical book reading experience even if your child isn't ready to read by herself. Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.
