Julia and I both thought this was really cute even though it's obviously for kids a bit younger than Julia. I think this is the first Minerva book we've ever read but I saw a reviewer mention there are others so we'll have to check some titles out.
In this Minerva is in her hen house when she hears a loud boom and leaves to investigate. After this we see and hear through Minerva. She sees fireworks falling from the sky and thinks they're stars, she sees the lights on the Ferris wheel and thinks t

If Amelia Bedelia were a farm animal, her name would be Minerva Louise. Funny read. Minerva is at the fair and once again, everything seems to make sense to her, but she really understands none of it the way everyone else does. Luckily, she finds a box to sleep in for the night and still more luckily, she wins a blue ribbon in the contest that sleeping in the box entered her in.

See, now here's what I love about the library. I liked that other book about the chicken [A Hat for Minerva Louise] and so I wanted some more, and the lady knew JUST WHERE to find them so I can read all of them now. I bet that doesn't happen at Bear Pond Books.
And this one was good like the first one. Minerva Louise gets confused about life but she always has fun and sees pretty things that make her happy, so it's OK.

Minerva Louise explores a county fair and takes home a prize. A colorful, fun story that is good to read aloud with children. Our girls like the Minerva Louise stories.
