Hello,my bucket list friends. It’s time for another book discussion for the Light Heart book club. August’s book was Dream on by Sarah Mlynowski. This book is part of the whatever after series. I’m excited to tell you more about this book and the activities I did along with it. There is one more thing before we dive into the discussion. The following post contains major plot points ( Spoilers ) for the book . If you want to read the book and haven’t yet, I suggest you wait to read this post until you have finished the book. Now, let’s dive into our discussion.
The whatever after book series focuses on Abby and her brother Jonah as they go through a magic mirror and into popular fairy tales. In this book Abby and Jonah end up in the story of Sleeping beauty. Things get complicated when Abby’s friend Robin gets put under the sleeping spell instead of the princess. I really enjoyed the author’s take on this story and I recommend it for anyone looking for a fun read.
My favorite part of the book – There were a lot of fun moments in this book. One of the moments that stood out to me the most was when prince the puppy came back through the mirror with the kids. I was happy that Abby and Jonah got to keep him.
My least favorite part of the book – It was kind of sad that Robin fell asleep and didn’t get to explore the kingdom of Rose with Abby and Jonah.
draw a rose -This story mainly takes place in the kingdom of Rose. As you can probably guess there are many beautiful roses there. It also turns out that Abby loves to draw roses. So I thought that drawing a rose was the perfect activity. In the book Abby describes how she draws her roses . I followed her description and I’m happy with how my rose drawing looks.
Color a puppy – as I mentioned above Abby and Jonah return home with a puppy. I decided to color a puppy picture from a coloring book I have. You can find coloring pages online if you would like to color your own puppy.
Thanks for reading !
