I wish Ivy and Bean were around when I was gaining more confidence as a young reader. This is a great series for bridging the gap for students reading beyond easy readers, but not yet quite ready to tackle a huge chapter book. My own daughter just loves them. Ivy and Bean are two unlikely friends who have amazing adventures right in their very own backyards. They are typical kids…funny, charming, smart, and yes, sometimes just a bit naughty. I think kids love them so much because they can find pieces of themselves in each of the characters.
