Once upon a time there were three Bears.
A papa bear, a mama bear, and a little baby bear.
They all lived in a small house in the forest.
One morning Mama bear prepared breakfast. And the three Bears sat down to their bowls of porridge.
But the porridge was too hot! So the three Bears decided to go for a walk while the porridge cooled.
Soon after they left, along came a little girl. Her name was Goldilocks.
She knocked on the door.
There was no answer.
Oh dear, she thought. I’ve missed them again. “I’ll come another time when they’re home,” she told herself.
And on her way she went, through the forest, and home.
