Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ivy and Bean [ book 1] I thought that the book was pretty good. Even if the book was meant for my younger sister I liked it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ivy and Bean are awesome! Ivy and Bean are fun, smart and silly characters who get into all kinds of trouble and we love them! We received this book as a gift for my daughter's sixth birthday and it was the best gift she got. She LOVES Ivy and Bean books and we now own all of them. I've taken to giving them as birthday gifts too. The chapters are the perfect length to read one before going to bed. Not so short that nothing happens, but not so long that I have to cut things off before the end of the chapter. Do your daughter or son a favour and read them these books. They're awesome.

Editorial Reviews

BARNES & NOBLE REVIEWAnnie Barrows accomplishes the almost impossible task of reflecting the world of second grader, creating the tension and drama of family and friendships in language that can be read easily by child who recently graduated from easy readers to early chapter books.
