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.

OH! The Places You'll Go! Giveaway Hop + 7 Out of the Box Uses for Erasers

Another Summer has come and gone and it's time to head Back to School!  

If you're anything like me you took advantage of all those Back to School deals and stocked up on all those back to school deals and now have a surplus of school supplies which will probably end up in a junk drawer or put away someplace where you will never find it when you need it.

Take for instance those pink erasers.  I buy a pack every year and every year without fail my family gives me that look when they see that pack of lone erasers in the back to school shopping cart.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use erasers around the house

Erase away scuffs on your kitchen floor with an eraser.  

Easily remove your kid's pop-up crayon masterpiece from the walls with an eraser. 

Remove stains from suede boots by gently brushing the eraser across the stain until it's gone.

Keep those tickling ivory piano keys nice and clean by erasing stains with one quick swipe.

Stubborn zippers loosen quickly by rubbing…

DIY Christmas Ornaments Ideas + Super Stocking Stuffer Giveaway Hop

It's the most wonderful time of the year...


The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

So many childhood holiday memories and traditions we have carried on for so many generations.  

This year is going to be a little different for our family.  This year we are breaking tradition.

This year our Christmas tree is going up before Thanksgiving.

We have ALWAYS decorated the Christmas tree after Thanksgiving but this year since we will be traveling during the Christmas holiday I figured we should have the tree up and have a table set up for the family to make some homemade ornaments for the tree.

I love this Hot Cocoa Mix Ornament idea from Sprinkle Some Fun.  This would be an ideal ornament idea for a large group.  So many tasty fun possibilities with this one.
We usually donate paper towel rolls to the school for projects and they usually end up as napkin rings but check out this Toilet Roll Reindeer idea from Happy Hooligans.  Absolute adorable isn't it? I have so many of these …
