Sweet Leola, young main character in, Leola and the Honeybears: An African-American Retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, wants to help her grandmother with the wash, but her grandmother does not want her to help. "You go on and play now," her elder says. "But don't go straying off anywhere. And don't go talking to any strangers." Ignoring her grandmother's warning, Leola runs deep into the Pine Hollow woods where she finds hints of "stranger-danger" before ending up inside the home of the classic three bears.
Rosales enhances this classic story with rich, inviting illustrations. In addition to the rich illustrations, Rosales adds unique nuances and a Southern touch to her descriptions throughout. As important as the illustrations are to the story, so are the lessons. Rosales' interpretation of this timely tale is truly a gift for young readers to share with family.
