Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians
Illustrated by John Manders
Published by Upstart Books

Deep in an enchanted forest, a little girl named Goldie Socks finds a storybook cottage. When she peeks inside, she finds shelves and shelves filled with books. As she searches for one that is just right, and a comfy place to read it, Mama, Papa, and Baby Libearian discover someone has been in their house!

Students will love this fractured fairy tale that has Goldie Socks searching for a story that is just right. The corresponding library lessons offer activities and ideas for teaching the five finger rule and other book selection tools.



"Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians is a simply delightful read that will entertain young readers and make a very popular addition to family, school, and community library picturebook collections."
Bookwatch, July 2007
