The Three Snow Bears

Three Snow Bears, beautifully written and illustrated by Jan Brett, uses the character of Aloo-ki as the counterpart of Goldilocks in the traditional tale of the Three Bears.  Aloo-ki, an Inuit girl, explores the igloo of the Snow Bears until they arrive home.  Taking a picture walk through this book before and after reading furthers the enjoyment of the story.  We love looking at all of the details Jan Brett puts in her illustrations.  We also enjoyed comparing the book to the Three Bears.  Aloo-ki is a very likeable character, and we laughed at the things she did.  Enjoy her adventures!

*Can you imitate the different bears’ voices?
*Are you anything like Aloo-ki?
*What would your life be like if you lived in an igloo?
