In ‘Bumbling Bea’ we meet an 8th-grade girl named Beatrice and follow her journey as she learns important lessons about friendship, self-control and self-awareness.
This book delivers a particularly important message about learning to see something from another person’s point of view and allowing that perspective to guide our decisions, actions and words.
Beatrice is a realistic character who struggles to deal with most of the things happening in her life. Early teen readers will easily identify with her and sympathise with her in the different dilemmas she faces. The other characters are well-developed and the story line certainly gets the reader involved.
This was an enjoyable story with some really good morals for kids.
