Once upon a time there were three bears who lived in a little house in a wood. Father Bear was a very big bear.
Mother Bear was not that big. Baby Bear was just a tiny, little bear.
One morning, Mother Bear cooked some porridge for breakfast. She put it into three bowls. There was a very big
bowl for Father Bear, a medium-sized bowl for Mother Bear and a tiny, little bowl for Baby Bear. The porridge
was rather hot, so the three bears went for a walk in the wood while it cooled.
Now at the edge of the wood in another little house, there lived a little girl. Her hair was so long that she could sit
on it. She was called Goldilocks.
On that very same morning, before breakfast, Goldilocks went for a walk in the wood.
Soon Goldilocks came to the little house where the three bears lived. The door was open and she peeped inside.
No-one was there, so she walked in. Goldilocks saw the three bowls of porridge and the three spoons on the
table. The porridge smelt good, and Goldilocks was hungry because she had not had her breakfast. Goldilocks
picked up the very big spoon and tasted the porridge in the very big bowl. It was too hot! Then she picked up
the medium-sized spoon and tasted the porridge in the medium-sized bowl. It was lumpy! Then she picked up
the tiny little spoon and tasted the porridge in the tiny, little bowl. It was just right. Soon she had eaten it all up.
Then Goldilocks saw three chairs; a very big chair, medium-sized chair and a tiny, little chair. She sat in the
very big chair. It was too high. She sat in the medium-sized chair. It was too hard. Then she sat in the tiny, little
chair. It was just right. But was the tiny, little chair just right? No! Goldilocks was rather too heavy for it.
The seat began to crack and then it broke. Oh dear!
Goldilocks had broken the tiny, little chair and she was so sorry.
Next Goldilocks went into the bedroom. There she saw three beds. She felt tired and thought she would like to
sleep. So Goldilocks climbed up onto the very big bed. It was too hard. Then she climbed up onto the medium
-sized bed. It was too soft. Then Goldilocks lay down on the tiny, little bed. It was just right. Soon she was fast
