Goldilocks and the Three Bears Short Story

Listen to or Read Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Once upon a time, in a dense forest, there was a cozy house where three bears lived: a Papa Bear, a Mama Bear, and a Baby Bear. They had three chairs in their living room, three beds in their bedroom, and three bowls for their porridge.

One morning, after Mama Bear made porridge, they found it too hot to eat. So, they decided to take a walk in the forest while it cooled.

Meanwhile, a little girl named Goldilocks was walking through the same forest and stumbled upon the bears’ house. Curious, she knocked on the door, and when no one answered, she pushed it open and went inside.

In the living room, she saw three chairs. She tried Papa Bear’s big chair, but it was too hard. Then she tried Mama Bear’s medium-sized chair, but it was too soft. Finally, she sat in Baby Bear’s small chair, which was just right, but it broke under her weight.

Feeling a bit tired, Goldilocks went upstairs to the bedroom. There, she found three beds. She tried Papa Bear’s bed, but it was too hard. Next, she tried Mama Bear’s bed, but it was too soft. Then she lay down in Baby Bear’s bed, and it was just right. Soon, she fell fast asleep.

While she was sleeping, the three bears came back home. They immediately noticed things were amiss.

Papa Bear bellowed, “Someone’s been sitting in my chair!”
Mama Bear exclaimed, “Someone’s been sitting in my chair too!”
Baby Bear cried, “Someone’s been sitting in my chair and has broken it!”

In the kitchen, they saw more evidence of the visitor.

Papa Bear growled, “Someone’s been eating my porridge!”
Mama Bear said, “Someone’s been eating my porridge too!”
Baby Bear sobbed, “Someone’s been eating my porridge and they ate it all up!”

Then, they went upstairs and found more clues.

Papa Bear roared, “Someone’s been sleeping in my bed!”
Mama Bear declared, “Someone’s been sleeping in my bed too!”
And Baby Bear whimpered, “Someone’s been sleeping in my bed, and she’s still there!”

Hearing the bears, Goldilocks woke up. Startled to see the three bears staring at her, she jumped out of bed, ran down the stairs, and didn’t stop running until she was far away from the bears’ house.
