If you haven't met Betsey Biggalow before, this would be a good book to start with. Betsey gets into trouble for all the typical small girl activities such as being just a little bit light-fingered with things she finds, falling out with her friend at school and having eyes bigger than her belly. The title story sets Betsey's life in its context of the Caribbean, but small children everywhere will identify with her and her family as they try to sort out her enthusiasm and problems. Nicely judged both for reading aloud and for early fluent readers, this will be a good addition to a class 'chapter book' collection.
