There's A Book

It’s hard to believe it’s already week six in the Ivy and Bean Blog-A-Bration! Before you know it the newest book in this spectacularly funny series will be here and I’ll finally be able to share my review! Yes, I’m teasing…just a bit. Because I have indeed read book nine, Ivy and Bean: Make The Rules, and loved it! So, while I’m at it with the teasing let me share a little sneak peek into Ivy and Bean: Make The Rules. Enjoy!

Ivy and Bean: Make the Rules

Week six’s book: Ivy and Bean: Doomed to Dance by Annie Barrows and Illustrated by Sophie Blackall

Finally! After begging their parents for ballet lessons, Ivy and Bean finally get what they want…well, not exactly. Much to their surprise, it turns out ballet lessons do not include karate chops and roundhouse kicks to the villain’s heart. The girls have no interest in learning how to dance gracefully, but they promised their parents they would finish the entire ballet course! When it comes time for Ivy and Bean to participate in the ocean-themed class recital, the girls must figure out a way to get out of it without breaking their promises.

    I was given the choice between dance and piano lessons. I knew the piano teacher, and my dad played, so I chose piano. Later, I became a theatre major, and discovered my complete and total lack of dancing ability would be a detriment to any hope of a theatre career.

    My Ivy + Bean-loving daughters take dance, though. ;o)

  2. Margo Jantzi says:

    I grew up in a Conservative Mennonite home and we were taught that dancing was not spiritually acceptable. Now my sense of rhythm is less than natural. I would love to try Karate sometime and I bet that would be a great release after a hectic day in the elementary library.

    Doomed to Dance is definitely a favorite of my students . . . and I have to add that they are so excited about a new Ivy + Bean coming soon.

  5. Heidi Grange says:

    I’ve always had a fascination with karate and other martial arts. This surprises a lot of people because I am really soft-hearted generally speaking.

  6. Emaginette says:

    I like to dance, and I can understand how disappointed the young ladies must be. Such great moves and no place to use them. Sounds like a book I should check out–oh I mean, get for my kids. hehehe

  7. Carol L says:

    I love dancing. Always have. So I’d have to choose dance. I think it starts with the music.

    love how Ivy and Bean scotch tape their fingers to become dancing Wilis!

  11. Kristie says:

    I like to dance, but I’m not good at it! LOL!
