Ladybug Nominee Profile

The three osos leave their house for a walk before dinner and Little Miss Rubia (with her curls of oro) comes along and helps herself to sopa, sits in the sillas, and settles in for a nap in the littlest cama. If you know about Goldilocks you probably think you know what happens when the bears come home, but you might be surprised. Susan Middleton Elya has retold this classic tale in rhyme with Spanish vocabulary mixed into the story and translated at the back of the book. The fun and colorful pictures in this book were created by Melissa Sweet.

Both the author and the illustrator have games and activities on their websites. Not specificially about this book though.

This is one of the ten titles nominated for the 2011 Ladybug Picture Book Award. Ms. Elya's work has been nominated before: Bebe Goes Shopping was nominated in 2008.
