Goldilocks and the Three Polar Bears is a simple story about a difficult topic. A little girl moves with her father to Alaska, where he works on an oil rig. As she and her father fly over the rig she is very excited to see three polar bears, and watches for them on return trips. An oil spill occurs. Though the company tries to clean up, the environmental impact is huge and the little girl worries over the fate of the bears. Beautiful illustrations detail the bears and the little girl as her excitement turns to worry. The book can serve as a useful tool in talking to children ages seven to nine about our impact on the environment.
