Fairy Tales

There was once a family of bears who lived in a cozy cottage in the woods. There was a great big Papa Bear, a medium size Momma Bear, and a little tiny baby bear. One morning Mama Bear cooked them some porridge for breakfast. As the porridge was too hot to eat, the three bears decided to take a walk in the woods while it cooled.

They had not been gone long when a little girl named Goldilocks came along. She had been picking flowers and had wandered into the woods. When she saw the three bear’s cottage, she smiled and clapped her hands. "How pretty!" she cried. "I wonder who lives there?" She stood on her toes and peaked in the window. There didn't seem to be anyone home, so Goldilocks opened the door and went right

inside! The first thing she saw was the table set with three bowls of porridge; a great big bowl for Papa Bear, a medium size bowl for Momma Bear, and a tiny little bowl for baby bear. "Oh, that porridge smells good!" Goldilocks said. Then, as she was feeling a little hungry, she picked up a spoon and tasted the porridge in the Great Big Bowl.

"OUCH!" she cried, dropping the spoon. "That porridge is MUCH too hot!" She tasted the porridge in the medium size bowl. But that porridge was MUCH too cold. Then she tasted the porridge in the tiny little bowl. "Mmmmmm," she said. "This porridge is JUST right!" so she ate it all up! Then Goldilocks saw the three chairs set before the fire; a Great Big Chair for Papa Bear, a Medium Size Chair for Mamma Bear and a Tiny Little Chair for Baby Bear. "Oh, it would be nice to sit down for a while!" Goldilocks thought. So she climbed into the Great Big Chair that belonged to Papa Bear. "Oh, no!" she said. "That chair is MUCH too hard."

Then she sat in Mamma Bears Medium size Chair "Oh, no," she said. "That chair is MUCH too soft!" Next, she sat in Baby Bears Tiny Little Chair. "Ahhhh," she said with a smile. "This chair is JUST right!" Just then there was a loud CRAAACK! And the little chair broke right through! Goldilocks stood up and dusted herself off. Then she climbed upstairs to the bedroom. There she saw three beds all in a row. "Oh," she said, yawning, "I am feeling sleepy." So she pulled down the covers and climbed into Papa Bears Great Big Bed. But she quickly jumped down. "That bed is MUCH too hard!" she said. Then she tried Mamma Bears Medium size bed. But it was too soft. So she climbed into Baby Bears Tiny Little Bed. It was JUST right. Soon Goldilocks was fast asleep! A little while later the Three Bears returned from their walk. They were feeling very hungry and were looking forward to eating the nice bowls of tasty porridge. Suddenly Papa cried out in his Great Big voice, "Someone has been eating my porridge!" Then Mamma cried out in her medium size voice, "Someone has been eating MY porridge!" And Baby Bear cried out in his Tiny Little Voice, "Some has been eating my porridge. And they've eaten it ALL UP!"

Then the Three Bears saw their chairs near the fireplace. "Someone has been sitting in my chair!" Papa Bear said in his Great Big Voice. "Someone has been sitting in MY chair!" Mamma Bear said in her medium size voice. "Someone has been sitting in MY chair," Baby Bear cried in his tiny little voice. "And now it's BROKEN!" Then the Three Bears went upstairs to the bedroom. "Someone has been sleeping in my bed!" Papa Bear shouted in his Great Big Voice. "And someone has been sleeping in MY bed!" Mamma Bear exclaimed in her Medium Size Voice. "Someone has been sleeping in MY bed," Baby Bear squeaked in his Tiny Little Voice. "AND HERE SHE IS!"

Just then Goldilocks woke up! When she saw the three bears standing around her, she leaped off the bed and ran down the stairs and out the door.

She didn't stop until she was all the way back home. And the Three Bears never saw Goldilocks again!

The Story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears
Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Goldilocks. She went for a walk in the forest. 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. She tasted the porridge from the first bowl. "This porridge is too hot!" she exclaimed. So, she tasted the porridge from the second bowl. "This porridge is too cold," 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.

After she'd eaten the three bears' breakfasts she decided she was feeling 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 the second 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, it broke into pieces! Goldilocks was very tired by this time, so she went upstairs to the bedroom. 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 just right. Goldilocks fell asleep. As she was sleeping, the three bears came home. "Someone's been eating my porridge," growled the Papa bear. "Someone's been eating my porridge," said the Mama bear. "Someone's been eating my porridge and they ate it all up!" cried the Baby bear. "Someone's been sitting in my chair," growled the Papa bear. "Someone's been sitting in my chair," said the Mama bear. "Someone's been sitting in my chair and they've broken it all to pieces," cried the Baby bear. They decided to look around some more and when they got upstairs to the bedroom, Papa bear growled, "Someone's been sleeping in my bed," "Someone's been sleeping in my bed, too" said the Mama bear "Someone's been sleeping in my bed and she's still there!" exclaimed Baby bear. Just then, Goldilocks woke up and saw the three bears. She screamed, "Help!" And she jumped up and ran out of the room. Goldilocks ran down the stairs, opened the door, and ran away into the forest. And she never returned to the home of the three bears.

THE END

THE THREE BEARS
here once lived a little girl who was called Goldilocks because her hair shone like gold. She was very fond of wild flowers and often went into the woods to pick them.

One day she walked and walked, and was soon a longer way from home than she had ever

been before. In fact, she was lost. But she hurried on, hoping to meet someone who might be able to tell her how she could get home.

On and on she

wandered and finally in a particularly lonely spot she happened onto a neat little house. It was really the house in which lived the three bears -- the Papa Bear, the Mama Bear, and the little Baby Bear -- but of course Goldilocks didn't know that.

The little girl went

up to the door and knocked. There was no answer. She knocked again. Still no answer. And so she opened the door and went in. She was very tired and hungry.

Goldilocks looked around, and saw a little table set with a nice white cloth,
and on the table were three bowls -- a big blue bowl, a middle-sized bowl, and a little yellow bowl. These three bowls belonged to the Papa Bear, the Mama Bear, and the Baby Bear.

Goldilocks lifted up

the covers to look into the bowls. Each was full of delicioussmelling porridge

which the three bears had left there to cool while they went for their early morning walk in the woods. Later they would return for a hearty breakfast.

Goldilocks picked

up the spoon which was in the big blue bowl and tasted the porridge belonging to the Papa Bear. It was very hot, much too hot for the little girl to eat.

The little girl then turned to the red bowl and tasted the porridge that belonged to the Mama
Bear. It was much too cold.

But there was still another bowl, and Goldilocks dipped her spoon into the porridge in the
little yellow bowl, the one that belonged to the Baby Bear. How good that porridge smelled!

Goldilocks tasted it. Um-m-m-m! It was just right, and so she ate and ate and ate until there
was not a bit of porridge left in the Baby Bear's little bowl.

After having eaten, Goldilocks wandered into the living room to sit down. There along the
wall stood three chairs -- a big chair, a middle-sized chair, and a little chair.

She tried the big chair, which belonged to the Papa Bear, but it was too high, much too high
for such a little girl.

Then she tried the middle-sized chair, which belonged to the Mama Bear, but it was too wide,
much too wide for Goldilocks.

There was still a third chair, the one that belonged to Baby Bear. It was a cozy little chair
with a green leather seat, and it looked like a very good chair for a tired little girl to rest in.

And so Goldilocks sat

down in the Baby Bear's chair. It was just right, and she sat so hard that she broke it. The little girl got quite a surprise when she tumbled to the floor, but she immediately picked herself up and decided she would go upstairs and look around. She was quite sleepy by now, and maybe she could find a nice bed upon which to lie down.

Then Goldilocks climbed
the stairs to the bedroom, and there found three beds -- one for the Papa Bear, one for the Mama Bear, and one for the Baby Bear. They were all fresh and clean.

Goldilocks lay down on Papa Bear's great big bed, but it was too hard. Then she tried Mama Bear's middle-sized bed, but it was much too soft. There was still a third bed -- Baby Bear's bed -- with a pink and white spread on it. Goldilocks
tried the littlest bed, and it was just right, and so she curled up and was soon fast asleep.

Now while Goldilocks
was sleeping, the bears came home from their walk.

They were very hungry
and went at once to the kitchen to eat their porridge.

The Papa Bear had
picked up his spoon and was about to begin eating when he suddenly growled in his big-bear voice, "Somebody has been tasting my porridge!"

When the Mama Bear
saw her bowl, she said in her middle-sized bear voice, "And somebody has been tasting my porridge, too!"

Baby Bear saw his empty bowl, and began to cry. "Somebody has been
tasting my porridge, and has eaten it every bit!" he wailed.

Then the three bears went
into the living room to sit down and rest.

Papa Bear noticed that "Somebody has been

his chair had been pulled out of its usual position. sitting in my chair!" he grumbled in his gruff

voice.

"And somebody has been
sitting in my chair!" said Mama Bear.

Baby Bear began crying
harder than before. "Somebody has been sitting in my chair and has broken it all to pieces!" he sobbed.

Baby Bear had no
chair to sit on, and so the three bears decided they would go upstairs to rest. They would take a short nap.

As they entered the

bedroom Papa Bear glanced at the big bed. "Somebody has been tumbling in my bed!" he growled.

"And somebody has

been tumbling in my bed!" said Mama Bear in her turn, walking over to the middle-sized bed and carefully smoothing the spread, which was quite rumpled.

All this time Baby
Bear had been staring hard at his own little bed. Finally he found his voice and piped up, "Somebody has been tumbling in my bed, and here she is!"

At the sound of the Baby
Bear's voice the little girl awoke with a start. She sat up and glanced about her. Then she sprang out of bed, and dashed down the stairs and out of the house as fast as her legs would carry her.

And Goldilocks never,
never went near the house of the three bears again.
