Finding Esme

(3) 4-6 Esme discovers dinosaur bones buried on the hill where her grandpa died--a discovery that brings both excitement and trepidation. Meanwhile, Esme works to unearth multiple mysteries regarding her distant mother's past, her absentee father's whereabouts, and her grandma Bee's ability to find lost things (which Esme has inherited). Esme's warm, folksy voice and the small-town Texas setting stand out in this story about finding happiness after sorrows.
