Busy Bea

Illustrated by Nancy Poydar

A forgetful little girl learns how to keep track of what’s important in this sweet picture book.

Bea always has so much to do—running around her house and neighborhood. Sometimes, things get lost along the way. Bea isn’t bothered too much until she misplaces a special sweater her grandmother knit for her. Can Bea overcome her absentmindedness and find her missing gift?
