There's A Book

Believe it or not it’s already week five in the nine week long celebration of all things Ivy & Bean! This week is Ivy and Bean: Bound to be Bad and it’s definitely one of the funniest of the bunch. Annie Barrows never ceases to surprise me with her sense of humor and ability to understand young kiddos. In fact, she even entertained an interview with our very own Turkeybird not long ago and it was absolutely hilarious! It’s certainly one you don’t wait to miss!

The Turkeybird’s 20 Question Interview with Annie Barrows

    I have to be honest–I’d never heard of these books before! They look simply delightful, and I’m going to have to delve into them now, especially when my 3-year-old gets a bit older. Thank you for the recommendation!

  2. Danzel says:

    I don’t know if I’d have the energy to keep up with Bean, so probably Ivy! She reads so much and has such an imagination. But my kids pretend to be Ivy & Bean, and my oldest would probably dislike my answer – Bean is her favorite. So she must never know how I answered this. ;o)

  3. Carol L says:

    Probably Ivy because she seems more my speed. :) I ‘m an avid addicted reader and that’s how you’ll usually find me spending my time.
    I had no idea there so many books about Ivy and Bean. My grandkids would love them. Thanks for the chance.

    I’d be friends with Bean! I like her hair, it’s so floaty.

  7. Jamilee says:

    Bean is my favorite! She always keeps life interesting!
