Becca Fair and Foul by Deirdre Baker - 9/10


To Becca and Jane, a summer production of Shakespeare's The Tempest seems like the perfect way to raise money for a new sailboat, and a great way to escape Gran's endless list of chores. Between distractions from wildlife and family drama, though, how will they get the play ready in time for their performance date?

OVERALL RATING 9/10

Feels real, shows kids as self-sufficient and capable

This book perfectly captures the childhood feeling of purpose and dedication that comes with a big, self-led project. As Becca and Jane piece together their play, the drive and enthusiasm is contagious and inspiring. I love this story as a representation of how capable kids are when given the time and space to be themselves! The story feels so real and is beautifully told, right down to the smallest details.
