Imagine your mother prepared your favourite food for lunch and while you were studying, a cat quietly crept in and ate away all your food. Wouldn’t you be very angry and sad? Although you are right about feeling angry in such a situation, you should not harm the cat but rather forgive it. A similar situation occurred with a bear family and they too were upset. However, they did not harm the accused and later forgave her. Being kind and forgiving is an important virtue. Come let’s read the Goldilocks and the Three Bears story with pictures.
Once upon a time, there was a naughty girl named Goldilocks. She had golden hair like sun rays and so she was called Goldilocks. She was always up to some tricks or mischiefs. One day, her mother sent her out for some work and strictly told her not to go into the forest. But naughty Goldilocks never listened to her elders. She indeed walked into the forest and heard a beautiful bird singing. She kept following the bird and running behind it. Very soon she realised that she had lost her way. She did not know where she was and could not recognise her way back.

Goldilocks regretted not listening to her mother. After roaming around in the forest for some time and crying to return home, she found a hut. Goldilocks felt relieved! She knocked on the door of the hut but no one answered. She then peeped in and asked, “Hi! Is anyone home?”. She looked around but could not find anyone. Goldilocks entered the hut and the first thing she spotted was a table with three bowls of porridge. Goldilocks was very tired, so on seeing the porridge bowls, she could not resist. She ate all three bowls of porridge. However, while eating she dropped some and made a mess.

After that, she walked around looking for a place to rest. She found three chairs. She went and sat on the smallest one but could not fit into it. The chair broke and Goldilocks hurt herself. Goldilocks then went upstairs, further exploring the place. She entered a room that had three beds. She lied down on the first bed but it was too long. She then went on to the next bed but this one was hard. She finally tried the third bed. It was soft and of the correct size. Goldilocks fell fast asleep as soon as she lay on the bed.
After a while, three bears entered the hut. Father Bear asked, “Mother Bear, how is the door ajar? Didn’t we lock it before leaving?” They looked at each other in confusion. Baby Bear, who was tired and hungry, rushed to the table to eat his porridge. He burst out in tears calling out to his parents, “Mummy, Daddy! Someone ate all our porridge and broke my chair too.”. Mother Bear tried consoling him but she too felt sad and angry looking at the mess.

Mother Bear, “No worries dear, I’ll make some more. Meanwhile, you can rest upstairs.”. When the bear family went upstairs to their bedroom, Father Bear cried in horror, “Look! Someone has slept on my bed. The sheets are dirty.” Mother Bear said, “Mine too!” Just then Baby Bear jumped in surprise, “A girl is sleeping on my bed.”. They understood that it was she who ate up all the porridge, broke Baby Bear’s chair, and slept on their beds. Just as they approached Baby Bear’s bed, Goldilocks woke up.

As soon as she saw the bears, she screamed so loudly that the bears were terrified. She ran straight out of their hut as fast as she could. She kept running and running and found her mother waiting at the end of the forest. Goldilocks told her mother everything. Her mother was angry with her and said, “Goldilocks, this is very naughty of you. What you did was wrong. You must apologise!”. The next morning, Goldilocks and her mother visited the bear’s hut with some gifts and delicious food. Goldilocks apologised to them and said that she was ashamed. The bears forgave her and Baby Bear and Goldilocks became friends.

This story teaches us that we should not touch anyone’s belongings or enter their house without permission. It may harm things and people. You may unknowingly hurt someone’s feelings and efforts and most importantly, trespassing is wrong. Moreover, apologising for the wrong is always the right and prudent approach. Accepting your fault and apologising for it makes you a better person. We should also have a big heart like the bears and learn to forgive. We hope you have enjoyed reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears story with pictures.
1. What kind of a child was Goldilocks?
Goldilocks was a naughty and mischievous child. She never bothered to listen to her elders so she learned a lesson for not listening to her mother. When Goldilocks’s mother sent her out on a task and asked her to not enter the forest, she did not obey her mother and lost her way. She thus ended up in the bear’s hut.
2. What did Goldilocks do in the bear’s hut?
When Goldilocks entered the hut of the bears, she first ate up all the porridge that was kept for the bears and dropped some of it on the floor. She then sat on Baby Bear’s chair and broke it since she could not fit into it. Thereafter, she tried sleeping in all three beds but finally chose Baby Bear’s bed as it was the right fit for herself.
