Ivy and Bean One Big Happy Family (Ivy and Bean Series #11)
Ivy's worried. She's read a lot of books about only children, so she knows that they are sometimes spoiled rotten. They don't share their toys. They never do any work. They scream and cry when they don't get their way. Spoiler alert!
BFFs Ivy and Bean are back in a big way with the 11th book in the beloved chapter book series. Ivy and Bean: One Big Happy Family , by author Annie Barrows and illustrator Sophie Blackall finds the titular duo on the search for a baby sister for only-child Ivy, who is suddenly worried about ending up spoiled rotten from not having siblings. Add to Bag. Barrows and Blackall are just as excited as their fans to be back telling stories about Ivy and Bean after a five year break. For One Big Happy Family , did you draw on any of your own experiences growing up?
My parents were forever trying to get me to like the kids of their friends. These kids were often weird. It was a problem. Ivy and Bean are very different. Bean is loud and wild and goofy. Ivy is quiet and full of ideas.
I freely admit it: I adore children's books. Many of them are better-written and more entertaining than the adult bestsellers.
