Minerva Louise At The Fair
By Janet Morgan Stoeke

Review by: Lori Plach

     Life is quiet on the farm. It was just the way Minerva Louise liked it.
She stays up later than everyone else on the entire farm. Minerva Louise hears a loud noise, then another and another. She goes to investigate. What she finds is a fair going on. She mistakes fireworks as stars falling from the sky. She thinks that the Ferris wheel is a brightly lit bulldozer. The attractions all look strange to her. A game tent has stuffed roosters hanging from the edge. Seeing her own reflection in the house of mirrors is confusing to Minerva Louise gets upset when she realizes that she can't get to all the hens that she sees. She enters the animal barns looking for the henhouse since she's feeling a bit tired. She passes the merrry-go-round and thinks that its the most beautiful horse barn she has ever seen. She arrives at the henhouse and climbs into an empty nest. When she opens her eyes, she sees her farmer who is admiring the beautiful blue ribbon over Minerva Louise's neck. He is so pleased with her achievement that he makes her a wonderful new nesting box complete with some stars of her own, which are really Christmas lights.
     This is an excellent book for preschoolers. The storyline is realistic
because all the sights and sounds of a first trip to a fair or carnival
can be very confusing but very exciting experience. The simple pictures
are brightly colored and add a great dimension to the already creative
and entertaining story. Minerva Louise At The Fair will definitely score a Blue Ribbon with young children!
