Goldilocks and the Three Koalas Tale Big Book

This is the classic story of Goldilocks and the three bears, but with an Australian twist - instead of bears, Goldilocks enters the tree house of three koalas. This big book teaches us about respecting the possessions of others. We see Goldilocks invite herself into the Koalas’ house, eat their food, use their furniture and even break some things. In the end, this book asks us “what did Goldilocks do wrong?” So we can discuss together, what she did wrong, whether she should have apologised and how she could have handled the whole thing differently. 

Jack and the Gumnut Stalk Big Book

Jack meets a Swagman who gives him some magic gumnuts. They grow into an enormous eucalyptus which Jack climbs up to find a big shed in the clouds, with a sleeping giant inside. In the original story, Jack steals the giant’s things and then kills him! In this version, there is no violence. Instead, Jack does the right thing and gives back the giant’s things – a magic harp and a chicken, which happen to be the giant’s only friends. When Jack apologises and goes home, the giant shows his gratitude. This big book teaches us about possessions, doing the right thing, apologies, forgiveness, gratitude, and friendship. 

Hansel and Gretel in the Bush Big Book
This is the story of two very resourceful young children – a brother and sister, who love to go on adventures together. They come up with clever ways to stay safe in the bush, but accidentally get lost. They meet a stranger who traps them and tries to make them eat unhealthy food, to fatten them up. The clever children only eat a little bit of unhealthy food, then escape and find their way home. This book is all about being resourceful, staying safe, stranger danger and even has a moral about eating ‘sometimes food’. It also emphasises the importance of family and friendship.
