Middle Grade Book Talk: Bumbling Bea


I used Bumbling Bea as a class read-aloud. My students really enjoyed it. Plus, it helped us to discuss handling not-so-nice feelings. We were fortunate enough to have Deborah Baldwin as a guest speaker and to have her read the first chapter. My students were able to ask her questions. My PTA purchased 7 books, one copy for each of the upper grade level classrooms. My copy is often checked out! A great read,”

Teacher, Ridgeway Elementary School, grade 5/6
