Ivy & Bean... Absolutely Fabulous!

The Ivy & Bean series by Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall, are a big hit with our 5-year old, and while they are excellent chapter books to step up to, she likes to listen to them in one sitting.

Ivy (who tends toward being reserved) and Bean (who is more of a hoyden heroine), bring out the best in each other, as is usually the case with the best of best friends, and Barrows writes with a fun and creative flair that easily draws in the reader. I enjoy reading these clever stories to Madeline.

Check them out — our household highly recommends these two fascinating friends.
