Excellent book to help kids love reading!,

This review is from: Ivy & Bean's Secret Treasure Box (Books 1-3) (Paperback)
My six year old girl does not love to read. The only books I could get her excited about were the Junie B. Jones books--but they were awful for my daughter--she started to pick Junie's constant terrible words (hate, stupid, dumb). The Bean & Ivy books are so much better! Ivy and Bean are still crazy enough to make my daughter giggle, but the girls are much more like regular high spirited kids. I think there are about 7 books in the series so far-- we just finished the first 3. My daughter and I both had a fun time reading them together. She also loved the treasure box book that came with the set. I really hope the author will keep writing these great books.

Really? You loved these books? I'm not trying to be argumentative but if you had a problem with "hate, stupid, dumb" in another book I'm surprised you liked Ivy & Bean. That book was full of that as well as calling names like "dork" and "nice = boring."
I thought these books were terrible examples for little girls.

You know, I have to agree L. Vintilescu. I picked this up hoping to avoid name calling, etc. and there was a ton of it in the first few chapters. I don't care for these books at all. It could have been written without the name calling.
