Messy Tessy

Messy Tessy by Leah Orr

While babysitter Aunt Fran is asleep, Messy Tessy finds humorous and amusing ways to entertain herself. With ever turn of the page enjoy the mischief that unfolds.

This is a well written children book. It is a cute story, written in simple words a first grader should be able to read.
Tessy is getting in all kinds of trouble while her aunt who is babysitting her is taking a nap. I enjoyed the rhyming sentences and the nice colorful illustrations.
My granddaughter loved this book and all the mischief Tessy got into. She is in first grade and had no trouble reading it.
This is a great book for all little girls.
