WHAT DIDN'T MAKE THE CUT (AKA: What We Started and Didn't Finish)
Lilly was a bit too whiny and I kind-of thought that my little sponges didn't need to learn more ways or reasons to finesse that skill.

The modern interpretation of this classic was way too mature for our audience.

We listened to half of it, but I thought that some of the topics required way too much explanation and there was enough of it that left me hoping they weren't really paying attention.  So for now, it's shelved.


**I usually read about new-to-me books or movies on Common Sense Media (or Amazon) to get a good idea what they're about before we read them.
