I really like the Ivy & Bean books. They are fun.
Ivy and Bean are sneaky.
Ivy is very imaginative. She loves books and playing pretend.
Bean is wild. Like when she makes the volcano. [In Book 4, Ivy & Bean Take Care of the Babysitter, Bean convinces the neighborhood kids to pretend that the huge pile of dirt in Sophie W.'s yard is a volcano. It's a crazy scene!]
|Big Sis wants to point out that Bean has great taste in shirts. Owls are a favorite of hers.|
Oooo, I want the paper dolls, too.
I think I'm more like Bean, but I like to read like Ivy. I can be sneaky, but not as sneaky as my little sister.
If you're ready for chapter books, these are really fun chapter books. They're easier to read than some of the other books. Like Junie B. Jones. I like Junie B., but the way she talks makes it hard to read sometimes. I'll try them again later. [She has trouble reading the Junie B. Jones books sometimes, because they are written in the first person, and she second guesses herself because of Junie's unique grammar and vocabulary.]

As soon as we're done reading all the books, I'm gonna start over again. But I'll read them by myself. We can find something else to read at bedtime.
[Now we have to make the Ivy & Bean cootie catcher from the website. Woo-hoo!]
