Celebrate the 40th anniversary of Bea and Mr. Jones with this stunning reissue of Amy Schwartz’s classic picture book.

It’s been forty years since Bea and her father first swapped places—Bea trading her lunchbox for a briefcase and Mr. Jones leaving his corporate job for a spot in the kindergarten classroom. This New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year and Reading Rainbow featured title holds up as a beautifully matter-of-fact story showcasing hugely relevant early childhood themes of empowerment, capability, and importance. Young children today deserve this reading experience, with a five-year-old main character who is never, for a second, underestimated.

With gentle updates to the design, including a larger trim size and recomposed cover, this new edition maintains the integrity of the beloved original.
