Children are precocious and almost always eager to help others. Little Mia, however, is told by her grandmother that she is too small to help. Can she find The Lost Fedora and prove her Grandma Bea wrong? Readers can find out as they follow Little Mia in this delightful picture book by Brynda Lattimore.

One sunny afternoon, a little girl named Little Mia and her mom decide to visit her grandparents in the county. Grandma Bea and Grandpa Lou live in a farm where Little Mia loved to go because there were a lot of things to do. When they reach the tiny farm house, Little Mia finds out that her Grandpa Lou has lost his fedora, which he needs to go to town. She is told to go outside to play while the adults try to find it. An old pal Buster, the family dog, finds her disheartened and teary-eyed on the steps of the farm. He resolves to help her look for it and they begin to search everywhere for the missing fedora.

Vibrantly illustrated, The Lost Fedora tells an engaging tale that will teach young readers that anyone can help regardless of age. Children and parents alike will be thoroughly charmed by this story and enjoy bonding over it during bedtime.

This book will be featured at the New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. on November 7-10, 2012.
