This boxed set was a Christmas gift much appreciated by the six-year-old recipient. The vinyl-sticker paper dolls that come with the set are very nice quality and a fun extra.
What I found to be fascinating was that the plot for each story is so well-written and developed that my daughter could not stop once she started reading! I usually sit with her and supervise her reading, helping out with some difficult words, and she gets so involved with the story that she just keeps on reading. This to me is the mark of a good book, one that entices a young reader to keep reading. The language is not overly simplified, on the contrary, there are some challenging words which I help my daughter with (pronunciation and definition, if necessary).
The black and white illustrations that appear in each chapter add to the appeal of these books. This boxed set is a value buy since it contains three of the Ivy and Bean books, i.e. Ivy and Bean Take Care of the Babysitter, Ivy and Bean Bound to Be Bad, and Ivy and Bean Doomed to Dance. In addition, there is a bonus in the form of 2 stand-up Ivy and Bean dolls, plus four sheets of removable plastic wardrobe stickers which provide hours of fun for young children.Read more ›
Ivy and Bean What's the Big Idea does not disappoint. Reading this book aloud I actually laughed so hard we had to stop reading for a few minutes. The chapters are short, the vocabulary is manageable and the characters are admirable, and the message is positive. I wish there were 100 books in this series. Unlike the Junie B. Jones series, the characters are well-behaved and have good intentions. Although they have flawed reasoning, they have good hearts and try to good.
My only complaint (and it is really my daughter's complaint) is that the cover is misleading. The girls never mix anything in beakers. The illustration on the cover of our book has the girls' teeth looking strangely gray.
Annie Barrows has a gift with words and children relate to her. I highly recommend this book.
