Bagong Kuwento: Si Goldy at ang Tatlong Oso

Here's a different version of the fairy tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears in Filipino, which I wrote.

Ano ito? Series: For beginning readers of Filipino

Hello, everyone! I would like to thank the people who sent me messages and comments. I’m sorry I was not able to reply to you personally, but I appreciate all your comments and encouragement.

Teachers and parents can use this list as a basis for making vocabulary…
