Annie Barrows’ infectiously fun Ivy and Bean Break the Fossil Record will have kids racing outside to shovel some dirt. Everyone in the second grade wants to set a world record. While other kids attempt to break records involving cartwheels and M&Ms, Ivy has a much neater idea. She and Bean will be the youngest people to ever unearth dinosaur fossils! And, after digging just two feet into Bean’s back yard, they’ve already found their first bone.

    " I love these two - such fun imaginations and pictures - a great early chapter book for ladies in early elementary. Something a little different from Junie B, but just as enjoyable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 2/18/2014

    " Macy and I just finished reading this book together. We both really liked it and are planning on reading more Ivy and Bean books. We especially liked all the unique names of the kids in Ivy and Bean's class. Very cute. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 (NS)JenniferA | 2/2/2014

    " I really enjoyed reading this book. I consider it chapter book for young readers. It still has pictures and some pages with very few words. It is about two girls, Ivy and Bean, and how reading a book about amazing world records sparked their interest in breaking a record. I felt that I could really relate to this book and I think students could as well. It is fun and very realistic! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kat | 1/31/2014

    " I liked the book because Bean got a book of world records. There was a record that this boy stuck more then 11 spoons on his face! Somebody tried to do it she got the first 3 on easy...but it was the rest of them that was hard. A girl in the book did 100 cartwheels in a row! A girl tried to do it but only did 57 then hit her fence. She hit her knee on her fence and got a ton of splinters.I wish there was a record for tons of splinters. Ha ha ha ha. A record said a boy ate 400 M&M in a minute! A boy tried to do it ...but he ate 210 and hurled. Bean rea1ly really really wanted to set a record. Ivy was in the process of reading a book on a woman that digs up bones. Ivy said"this book is amazing". She was a archeologist. Bean asked Ivy what a archeologist was. She said an archeologist was a person that digs up bones. Then Bean had an idea...they will be the youngest archeologists in the world! They had some luck they found more than 18 bones on their first go round! "

    " I think Ivy and Bean did find dinosaur bones. That is just my thought. But Nancy was really mean about it, saying their just plain old steak bones. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tuscania | 1/14/2014

    " My 6 year old gave this book 4 stars because she was hoping to find out who the bones belonged to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deaysia | 1/11/2014

    " This book was amazing and absolutely funny.I would recommend this book for the people who are creative and want to do things that people have never done before.This is how it all started,there teacher told them to start reading.Bean didn't want to read so the teacher recommended a book for Bean.The book was called The World Records.Bean asked the teacher what that mean't,she explained what the book mean't,suddenly Bean decided to read the book.When she started reading it was time to go outside for recess.Bean brought the book outside,everybody crowded her because they wanted to know what she was reading.Nobody was playing on the playground at all.If you want to learn more read the book. "
