One of my children’s most beloved authors is Jan Brett. From The Mitten to Gingerbread Baby to The Hat … we love them all! We recently had the pleasure of adding another beautifully-illustrated Jan Brett book to our family’s library. My youngest received The Three Snow Bears as a Christmas gift from his beloved godmother (another fantastic book gift-er!). It has become an instant classic in our home!
Cozy Winter Read: The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett
The Three Snow Bears is an engaging spin on the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears tale. This book tells the story of Aloo-ki, a young Inuit girl, as she loses her dog sled team and ends up stumbling into an igloo belonging to the three snow bears. As Aloo-ki explores this unknown abode, the three snow bears discover her dog sled team stuck on an ice floe in need of rescue. They save the team and head home to find Aloo-ki asleep in the littlest bear’s bed.
The Three Snow Bears makes for a perfect snuggly story after you come in from the cold. Why, you wonder? Read on to find out!
Do you want to take this read aloud to the next level?
Jan Brett’s books are well-loved not only because they are wonderful tales, but because they are beautifully illustrated. One could get lost in each page. The details are incredible and the art is simply breath-taking. I love to read this book after my children have come in from the cold, when they are tired and ready to wind down. Brett’s artwork is inspiring. I cannot tell you how many times my children have finished one of her books, only to run off to draw or color.
These books are perfect Doodle Diary inspiration, folks!
