Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians by Jackie Mims Hopkins, illustrated by John Manders

Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians Goodreads

When I was growing the three bears were not sufficient and so my father and I made the story our own.  We would tell the story of the three snakes or other animal families of three.  Well Hopkins has taken the classic tale another direction.  Goldie Socks is fascinated with this house of books and takes her time trying different books and reading spots and when the libearians come home… Papa reads them all a story including Goldie Socks.  The book also includes a neat lesson plan for helping younger kids find books to suit their tastes. (On a bizarre note I just noticed that though it has the above spelling of Goldie Socks on the cover, on the spine it is Goldisocks and the Three Libearians.)
