“Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas” written by Natasha Yim and illustrated by Grace Zong I love this picture book! Natasha Yim introduces the Chinese New Year to young readers by retelling a classic for children “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”.
This is a MUST HAVE for teachers, teaching readers about Chinese New Year, and the deeper message friendship, and forgiveness.
The illustrations, by Grace Zong, are Bright and fun matched perfectly with the story. Something that stood out too me was that the author went the extra mile with this book adding Chinese New Year, the Chinese Zodiac, and even a recipe for turnip cakes!

In this Chinese American retelling of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," a careless Goldy Luck wreaks havoc on the home of a family of panda bears. She eats up the littlest panda’s rice porridge, breaks his rocking chair, and rumples all the blankets on his futon. When Goldy takes responsibility for her actions, she makes a new friend (and a whole plate of turnip cakes!) just in time for Chinese New Year.
