This study guide is for the award winning middle grade book, Bumbling Bea. It contains chapter one and a study guide for the chapter. Several teachers have used it in a reading group and as a read aloud.
Here is a short synopsis of Bumbling Bea:
Beatrice thinks she has no acting talent but that doesn’t stop her from auditioning for the annual middle school play. Easy! Except Michiko, a new girl from Japan, shows up and ruins everything! So begins Beatrice’s diabolical and hilarious plan to scare away Michiko. But Michiko has goals of her own with no plans to leave soon. Then there's that other girl who is such a blabbermouth. What's a girl to do? Plenty. A great book for those who love theater and every part of it--the good, the bad and the crazy.
Note: I plan to provide the chapter study guide for the entire book in the near future.
This is the one. It was written especially for students who love theater!
This is a unique, engaging product created by an award winning, veteran drama teacher of 38 years.

Here's what reviewers say about Bumbling Bea:
4 Stars Wishing Shelf Book Awards
"Funny, well-plotted and populated with memorable characters."
"This is a great book for those who know theatre and those who don't! A book any of us can relate to and recall our own tumultuous journey through middle school or junior high."
"Bumbling Bea" has the right "voice" for a children's book. It doesn't shy away from challenging vocabulary and has situations that I believe 12~13-year-old's could relate to and enjoy."
