"A sure bet for a kid-tested, puppy-approved storytime."-- Kirkus reviews
Busy Betty has always been busy. Every day she wakes up with a million questions and a billion ideas! And today she has an amazing idea: she’s throwing her mom a birthday party. Shhh . . . It’s a surprise!
Then Betty and her best friend, Mae, have the best idea of all: What if they threw Mom a circus surprise party?! It will be the greatest day in the history of the universe!
Everything is perfect until Betty realizes—oh, no!—Mom’s birthday isn’t today . . . it’s next month. Whatever will they do with their circus surprise now?
Reese Witherspoon’s Busy Betty is an exuberant, smart, and larger-than-life character who encourages young readers to tackle each obstacle with enthusiasm, excitement, and big ideas.
Praise for Busy Betty:
“A fun and high-spirited story for the fans of Fancy Nancy, Pinkalicious, or Freckleface Strawberry.”—School Library Journal
“Extreme angles effectively convey a sense of perpetual motion . . . Witherspoon’s rollicking text never holds back . . . As Betty says, “Being busy is a great way to be.” Young readers are sure to agree.”—Kirkus Reviews
