Book Review: Minnie in Paris by Sheila Sweeny Higginson


Minnie Mouse is invited to Paris for Fashion Week where she will show her beautiful bows. She and her friends work hard to create a selection of bows to bring along. But when they arrive in Paris, Minnie’s suitcase is swapped with that of Penguini the Magnificent, and Minnie ends up with a case full of bunnies hopping out of his magic hat, instead of the bows.

In Minnie in Paris by Sheila Sweeny Higginson, Minnie heads out into Paris to collect the missing bunnies, while her friends buy new supplies for new bows. As they make their way through Paris trying to round up the bunnies and the materials, all of the big landmarks of the city are shown in both illustrations and words. The pictures are big and full of vibrant colors and lots of little details to look at. 

Although there are only a few sentences on each of the 40 pages, there are some bigger words and some French words as well, so it’s really more of a read-aloud for younger kids. It's a bit of a counting book, too, as they collect one bunny, then two, then three, and on up to ten.

This is a beautiful picture book that will definitely appeal to Disney fans, and especially Minnie fans! And it includes a code to access the Minnie in Paris ebook, as well.

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
