The Princess & the Pea Reviews
Easy read, really cute illustrations!
The pictures are very unique, but also very child friendly. The noses are all pointed and cartoon like, which is sort of the focus of the book; it is simplistic style with the watercolor medium. The king in the picture looks similar to the King Louis the 14th of France, which could lead to a conversation about real Kings, Queens, and Princesses. The author also plays with colors too as most of the book are in blue hues to represent outside, inside the hall of the castle is gray, but the pages leading up to the bedroom for the Princess is becoming more distinctly pink, a symbolization of the rising action and climax.
This version of the classic folktale "The Princess and the Pea" is told similar to the other versions. The princess knocks on the door and claims she is a princess. They did not believe her. In order to prove she is a princess, a pea was placed under twenty mattresses. She felt the pea under all of the mattresses and therefore proved she was a princess. I would use this children's folktale in my classroom to teach a lesson on elements of a folktale. I would use this along with other versions of the same folktale to teach on lesson on comparing and contrasting the stories.
The Princess and the Pea, follows a prince around as he is in search of a real princess. The queen knows that only a real princess could feel a pea through 20 mattress. This story reveals who people truly are. I would use this story in my classroom to help students learn who they truly are, and also you could use it during a math lesson. Have the students count the different mattress and then write their own story about The Princess and the Pea and incorporate someone who stays true to themselves.
Once, there was a princess who came to the king's door. They were unsure if she was a princess or not, so they put a pea under her bed to see if she could feel it or not. This was the real test to see if she was a princess. She could feel the pea, which meant she was one.I would use this book in my classroom when I am teaching what a folktale book is. Then, the students would complete an art activity creating all of the mattresses with a pea at the bottom.
One night, there is a girl that comes to a palace door. The king himself answers, and finds a girl seeking shelter. She claims to be a princess. The queen is skeptical, but she has a test. She puts a pea, beneath an incredible amount of bedding. A real princess would feel the pea. The girl not only spends a fitful night, she is rendered black and blue by the offending pea. And so the prince marries her. This would be a great book to use in my unit on folktales.
The people in the book were uncertain if the young girl was a princess, so they put a pea under her mattress. If she could feel the pea underneath her when she laid down then that meant she was a princess. If she could not feel the pea then that meant the young girl was not a princess. However, she did feel the pea so the people knew she was a princess for sure.
