Event Details

Just Bea
Kari-Lynn Winters

Noisy, disruptive, and unruly―younger sisters can be more than annoying at times. When you’re in a hurry, they can be as slow as sloths. And when you build an extra tall tower of blocks, they knock it down, mischievous as mice. In this playful picture book, the narrator, who is both practical and reserved, struggles with the rowdy antics of her younger sister. Beatrice never, ever, ever listens and marches to the beat of her own drum. It isn’t until the big sister wishes Bea away that she realizes life just isn’t the same without her.
