Be Be in Tar Beach

Be Be

Meet Cassie's little brother. You'll recognize this fashion icon by the stunning yellow romper he likes to wear. Be Be's interests include hanging out with Cassie…and…that's pretty much it, as far as we know.

Be Be, like Cassie, is a kid—but he's even younger. The next generation, if you will. When he learns how to fly, it gives us a happy, hopeful feeling about the future—both for Be Be and Cassie, and for children everywhere.
