Princess Cupcake Jones Won't Go To School Book Review

She's baaaaaaaaack...

and this time Princess Cupcake Jones Won't Go to School.

The first day of school is daunting for many children, especially if they haven't been in daycare or some other group setting. Will the other children like me? What if I don't know what to do or where to go? These and other worries rattle around in their little heads.

In the new children's book, Princess Cupcake Jones Won't Go To School by Ylleya Fields, Princess Cupcake initially refuses to go to school.



The end of the summer was finally here,
which meant, in the kingdom, a brand new school year.
But at 6 Garden Place, Cupcake sullenly pouted.
"I won't go to school! No, I won't!" Cupcake shouted.

The Queen watched from the doorway perplexed as to why.

"But you were excited," was her calm reply.
"I'm not," Cupcake said. Her foot stomped with a boom.
"I don't want to go. I'm not leaving this room!" 

When just pouting doesn't seem to sway her mother, Cupcake pretends to be sick. But when her mother mentions the doctor and a possible shot, Cupcake suddenly feels better.
Next she tries the excuse that her tutu is dirty--readers of Princess Cupcake Jones and the Missing Tutu already know this is Cupcake's favorite garment. But Mother is one step ahead again.


When this strong-will young princess finally goes to school and meets her nice teacher and makes friends with another little girl (also wearing a tutu), school doesn't seem so bad.


My Thoughts:   We loved Princess Cupcake Jones in Princess Cupcake Jones and the Missing Tutu and were really excited when we unexpectedly received her latest book and being in the midst of the Back to School, the timing could not be more perfect.  I should also add The Littlest One is not a fan a preschool.  Oh, that's a whole other story.  He did, however, enjoy Princess Cupcake Jones Won't Go To School.


The illustrations are bright and colorful and just fun.  Her curly locs and big, brown eyes are adorable, absolutely adorable.  The rhythmic verse jumps off the page and is wonderful for reading aloud.  Princess Cupcake Jones is a spark of spunk and we love her.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
