Quotes & Awards

  • “Annie 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.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “With echoes of Beverly Cleary’s Ramona series, this easy chapter book will appeal to children who are graduating from beginning readers…The characters are appealing, the friendship is well portrayed, and the pranks and adventures are very much on grade level.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Bean’s spunky way of talking and acting will make readers giggle.”

Listener Reviews

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Melissa Williams | 2/18/2014

    " Best of the Ivy & Bean series so far - it had the kids rolling on the floor during the last 2 chapters. A great read for 6-9 year-old girls. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Review by Lisa Eggers | 1/24/2014

    " The first book was pretty good. We all enjoyed it. This one wasn't good. Right off the bat the author starts comparing wax from cheese to "boogers". I'm sorry, but why all the talk of "boogers"? That word really grosses me out, so we just don't use that word up in this piece. Do eight-year-olds need to be grossed out to enjoy reading? NO! Eight-year-olds are cool and intelligent and do not need the constant references to nose-picking. A cheap move, in my opinion. Please don't insult our eight-year-old population with this lameness. So we are DONE with this series, thankyouverymuch. "

    " This one is really awesome. Ivy & Bean want money so they can buy Babybel cheese and play with the wax. "

    " Little girls blackmail neighbors to earn money to buy delicious cheese! They are my heroes. "
