Disney-Hyperion sent me a copy to check out, and is partnering with me for a giveaway!
Do you have a child who loves to read? Maggie is really starting to take off with reading lately and so we’re diving into the world of chapter books together. There’s a brand new book that we’re reading together and really enjoying, called Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker, that I’d love to tell you about today!
About the Book
Beatrice does her best thinking upside down.
Hanging from trees by her knees, doing handstands . . . for Beatrice Zinker, upside down works every time. She was definitely upside down when she and her best friend, Lenny, agreed to wear matching ninja suits on the first day of third grade. But when Beatrice shows up at school dressed in black, Lenny arrives with a cool new outfit and a cool new friend. Even worse, she seems to have forgotten all about the top-secret operation they planned!
Can Beatrice use her topsy-turvy way of thinking to save the mission, mend their friendship, and flip things sunny-side up?
This book is recommended for ages 9-12, but of course, you can always read it together with your child, like Maggie and I are doing, if they aren’t quite to that reading level yet.
