Story: The Three Bears
Once upon a time there were three bears: a Little, Small, Wee Bear, a Mummy Bear and a Daddy Bear. They lived together in a house in the forest.

Early one morning Little, Small, Wee Bear, Mummy Bear and Daddy Bear went for a walk in the forest while they waited for their porridge to cool. A little girl called Goldilocks came to the house of the three bears. She looked through the window. She peeped through the keyhole. She pushed the door open and went inside.

She saw three bowls of porridge on the table. She took a spoonful from the Daddy Bear’s bowl but it was too hot. She took a spoonful from Mummy Bear’s bowl but it was too sweet. She took a spoonful from Little, Small, Wee Bear’s bowl and it was just right. She ate up all the porridge.

Goldilocks was tired so she decided to sit down. She sat in Daddy Bear’s chair but it was too wide. She sat in Mummy Bear’s chair but it was too narrow. She sat in Little, Small, Wee Bear’s chair and it was just right but she was too heavy and the chair broke.

Goldilocks was still tired so she went into the next room which was the bedroom of the three bears. There was a big, huge, enormous bed for Daddy Bear and Mummy Bear and a little, small, wee bed for Little, Small, Wee Bear. Goldilocks snuggled into the big, huge, enormous bed but it was too large. Goldilocks snuggled into the little, small, wee bed and it was just right. She fell fast asleep.

Goldilocks was still asleep when Little, Small, Wee Bear, Mummy Bear and Daddy Bear came home.

Daddy Bear said, “Someone has been eating my porridge.”

Mummy Bear said, “Someone has been eating my porridge.”

Little, Small, Wee Bear said, “Someone has been eating my porridge and it’s all gone.”

Daddy Bear said, “Someone has been sitting in my chair.”

Mummy Bear said, “Someone has been sitting in my chair.”

Little, Small, Wee Bear said, “Someone has been sitting in my chair and it’s all broken.”

Daddy Bear, Mummy Bear and Little, Small, Wee Bear went into the bedroom. Mummy Bear and Daddy Bear said, “Someone has been sleeping in our bed.”

Little, Small, Wee Bear said, “Someone has been sleeping in my bed and she’s still here.”

That’s when Goldilocks woke up. When she saw Little, Small, Wee Bear, Mummy Bear and Daddy Bear staring at her, she got such a fright she jumped out of the bed, out of the window and out of the house.

The three bears never saw Goldilocks again.
