Why Our Experts Love It

We love box-sets.

Forget the value, it's the continuity and consistency they provide that the kids loved. The Ivy and Bean Boxed Set is a great series for your little girl to read.

Meeting new people, getting along and learning how people are different is a big part of growing up (and being an adult as well). Those are just a few reasons we love Ivy & Bean.

From the Author, Annie Barrows:

One of the big problems of being a kid is that your parents often try to make you play with people you don 't really like. My parents were forever trying to get me to like the kids of their friends. These kids were often weird. I didn 't want to play with them. It was a problem.

I remembered that when I was writing the first Ivy and Bean. Ivy and Bean are very different. Bean is loud and wild and goofy. She loves to be involved in games and poke her nose in other people 's business. Ivy is quiet and full of ideas. She spends most of her time learning how to be a witch. Each girl thinks the other one is weird. Each girl thinks she could never be friends with the other. Especially because their parents keep nagging them about it.

But sometimes opposites can become the best of friends because they 're opposites. For example, people who like to talk need people who like to listen. And people with great ideas need people who can put those ideas into action. For Ivy and Bean, their differences mean that they have more fun together than they could ever have separately. It also means that, together, they do more wacky things than any one kid could ever dream up. The Ivy and Bean books are about the adventures = and disasters = created by this unlikely team. And since their motto seems to be Why not? there 's every reason to believe that their capers and catastrophes will continue for quite a while.

  • Reading with your child is a great way to spend quality time. Reading is an important activity to foster language skills and help your child learn new information. Long before a child can speak, an infant is learning the melodies and sounds of language. They are learning to understand words and pair pictures of objects with the name of the object. In addition to language skills, reading with your child helps improve their attention and builds curiosity. We want children of all ages to hear ‘adult, complex sentences’ so alternate reading a book as you typically would (reading all the written words) with the tips described below.
  • Infants – 2 year olds: point to the pictures and emphasize the name of each picture (one word at a time). Your intonation and melody plays an important role in your child’s attention to the book at this age.
  • 2-3 year olds: read the story as written but ask questions along the way to ensure that your child understands what is happening in the story. This also allows them to be active “readers”
  • 3-4 year olds: ask your child to tell you about the pictures/predict the story first. Then read the words on the page. This is a great way to help foster their story-telling abilities.
  • 4-5 year olds: at this age children begin to gain interest in the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make. Point to some of the words as you read to support this interest. At the end of a book, you and your child can make up a different ending OR try and add to the story.
  • 5-6 year olds: Your child will begin to read at this age, generally by memorization of sight words. Keep a running list of the words that your child successfully recognizes. They will feel great pride as the list grows longer and longer.
