Happy Friday, and welcome to the latest installment of our monthly feature
where we review Children’s books.
Ivy & Bean
Written by Annie Barrows and Illustrated by Sophie Blackall
Amazon / B&N / Indiebound / Goodreads
The moment they saw each other, Bean and Ivy knew they wouldn’t be friends. But when Bean plays a joke on her sister, Nancy, and has to hide quickly, Ivy comes to the rescue, proving that sometimes the best of friends are people never meant to like each other. Vibrant characters and lots of humor make this a charming and addictive introduction to Ivy and Bean.
A Mischievous Delight
Now that summer is here, the kiddos and I have been reading new series and Ivy & Bean by Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall is one that’s captured the imagination of all three of my little foxes! Ivy and Bean may not want to become friends initially but once they join forces they see just how much fun the other one is!
This is one of those series that’s a perfect transition into chapter books. Enough illustrations to keep my youngest reader keeping her eyes on the page but wordy enough that we can’t finish it in half an hour. Plus there are a dozen or so books in the series which is fantastic because it’s great to keep a good thing going!
I love these characters too. Ivy and Bean are interesting little girls who are just a little bit different but are a whole lot interesting. I can see great adventures in their futures, and those are adventures I want to share with my kids!

Aww! This just sounds like all kinds of adorable. I’m always on the lookout for good illustrated story books for my niece and this sounds perfect, especially since it’s about friendship!

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set
up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m
not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
