It gives them the ability to read a book - REALLY own the experience instead of just "playing" as they must do when they can't understand the words - on their own.

Simple, yet beautiful illustrations tell the story - a most clever rendition of Goldilocks and the Three Bears - without using even a single word.

This retelling of the Goldilocks story is a big hit with my three-year-old. Without words, the illustrations show a little bear's adventures in a little girl's cabin. While she and her parents are out the bear investigates the porridge, the chairs and the beds. The family returns and the drawings of the little girl's indignant reaction to her spilled porridge and broken chair are priceless. The little bear is discovered in the little girl's bed and is chased away, returning to his waiting mother bear. My son loves to narrate the story for me. The illustrations tell the story perfectly and the humor of the role reversal certainly was not lost on him.

The illustrations are wonderful. Please know that there are no words in this book. That makes you the storyteller or your child. It's a great way to stoke their imagination when you let them be the "author".

This wordless picture book is a retelling of Goldilocks, from the rather more realistic perspective of a bear cub invading a human cottage.

I love the bear's expression as he finds the chairs are too hard, too soft, and a LOT of fun to rock in - and you can't beat Goldilocks crying at every little thing!

Some people object to wordless picture books on principle, because they are unfamiliar with them. This is what I have to say to that:

Wordless picture books are PERFECT for pre-readers. It gives them the ability to read a book - REALLY own the experience instead of just "playing" as they must do when they can't understand the words - on their own. It gives them practice in putting together stories and working out details from context. And it allows them to be the expert at some activity that is usually restricted to adults and older children in their life - reading a book.

By that same token, they are also ideal for early readers. It's non-threatening, and yet it's still a way to practice following a storyline. Reading is more than just mechanically putting together sounds and reciting them, after all. Many people are impressed by a five year old who can say, word-perfect, some complex piece he or she "reads" from a page, but later they find out that the child has no idea what they just read and wasn't thinking of reading as an exercise in gleaning meaning from text, but merely as reciting memorized sounds and letter combinations. Working out the story for themselves from a book with no words is a wonderful way to practice this sort of "reading for meaning".

But what of the child who stumbles in reading?

I used this wordless "Goldilocks" book in my 3rd grade classrooms with students who spoke another language other than English. It requires being in a one-on-one situation. Armed with a pad of 3" sticky notes, I would have the student TELL me the story on page 1. I would write down exactly what they said (date them). Repeat this procedure for every page. No corrections first time through. I would figure out what small chunks they needed to learn for our next lesson together. When I met with the student, I had them tell me the story again - this time using a different colored sticky note w/ the date. I would stop and teach certain words - generally nouns. We would meet repeatedly, each time the lessons became more focused on verb tense, adjectives, grammar... By parent-teacher conference time, the book was filled with notes with dates showing their child's progress. It was a win-win-win all the way around and cause for celebration.

If you search "Wordless Books" you'll find other selections. I like to use this story because it is a familiar one in many cultures and isn't too long.

Format: Paperback
A curious bear cub leaves his mother to investigate a cabin deep in the forest. He investigates bowls, chairs and beds before falling asleep -- just in time for the family to return from a walk. Beautiful and humorous illustrations are the star of this textless retelling. Our two-and-a-half-year old loves this book -- asking for it several times a day -- participating in the 'reading', laughing, feeling indignant for the little girl and her broken things. This is a charming storybook.

By BRENDA JOHNSON on September 30, 2001
Format: Spiral-bound
My children use this literature at a minneapolis public school. The school: a math; science; technology magnet doesn't get through the material in a year. it has more picture books for early grades and simple short stories--great for begining readers and some slower readers, but not gifted for those students in classes where they are ahead of the class. lots and lots of worksheets. my kids get frustrated. 1) who needs more time/attention and who is undiagnosed with learning disablities and the other who is who is undiagnosed gifted. Better tha Success for All reading programs and less prescribed.

check out more curriculums and read on how to evaluate. something may be better for you.
