Goldilocks and the Three Bears: A Folktale from Britain
"Goldilocks and the Three Bears" is a popular British folktale. The three bears living in a forest had a surprise visitor who had eaten their porridge! Find out how Goldilocks, a young girl in Britain, went into the Three Bears' Cottage and gave a surprise to herself and the three bears! Count from 1 to 3 and learn the stable principle that it does not matter how the three objects are arranged, the number stays the same.
"Goldilocks and the Three Bears" is the first of the three books in the first series of the CAMathories(TM) Folktale Mathematics(TM) curriculum (3-4 years old). Series 1: Count and Recite 1 to 5. Two other books in the same series are: "Paco and the Giant Chili Plant" (from Mexico), and "5 Little Monkeys Catching the Moon" (from China). This series helps readers to develop an awareness of the principle of 'order irrelevance' - we can count things in any order but the number stays the same.
CAMathories(TM) Folktale Mathematics(TM) Series books are fun math-learning folktales designed, written, and peer-reviewed by renowned (current and previous) researchers and faculty members of mathematics and early years learning from the University of Cambridge.
