Hello, hello. We are here with a double trouble edition of Juliet’s Corner.
ARE YOU READY???
I talked about it on my Goodreads Monday post but I’m going through a bit of a reading slump which is affecting my posting and I’m also working a lot more since I am a single mom and the holidays are coming so the blog schedule might be slow and different. I apologize if comments and everything else are a bit wonky for a bit. I’m trying my hardest 🙂
Okay, so the first book we have is an ARC from Edelweiss and I was super excited we were approved for it!!
Spirited and observant, Layla’s a child who’s been given room to grow, making happiness both thoughtful and intimate. It’s her dad talking about growing-up in South Carolina; her mom reading poetry; her best friend Juan, the community garden, and so much more.
Me: What is Layla’s Happiness about?
Juliet: It’s about things that make her happy.
Me: What is happiness to Layla?
Juliet: Climbing a tree and purple!
Me: Do you like climbing trees?
Juliet: No because I can scrape mt knees and get hurt.
Me: What is happiness to Juliet?
Juliet: Painting and drawing!
Me: Painting what?
Juliet: A popsicle that has a bite on it! And Undertale characters
Me: what else makes you happy?
Me: What would you rate this book overall and would you reccommend it to other kids?
Juliet: 10 HEARTS and yes, I would!
Me: Okay! Next book then!

Our next book is a fairy tale classic…it is
Underneath the mattress at the very bottom, the queen placed a teeny, tiny pea. One rainy night, Princess Polly knocks on a lonely prince’s palace door. But is she a real princess? The queen has a plan to find out!
Juliet’s Q + A
Me: What was this book about?
Juliet: The Princess and the Pea. It’s about the servants put a pea under the princess’s mattress under her mattresses to find out if she’s a real princess because princesses have soft skin.
Me: So is this a fairy tale?
Juliet: Yeah, it’s like Rapunzel and The Three Little Pigs and other fairy tales?
Me: What’s your favorite fairy tale?
Juliet: This is one of my favorites! I read it in first grade. I love it.
Me: What did you learn from this story?
Juliet: That you should never marry a cranky, old king. Never, ever. Ever.
Me laughing: Okay, okay. What would you rate this story?
Juliet holds up ten hands: BYE EVERYONE.
