Rating/Response: 5 This book is sure to be loved by younger elementary students who will ask to have it read to them again and again. It is silly and clever and will be loved by teachers and students alike.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: What do you think the Goldilocks story would be like if the bears were dinosaurs?
