  1. I am so excited! This is such a popular series in my classroom. Now I need to think of a fun way to celebrate this exciting day. Hmmm? Thank you for sharing.

  2. I haven't read many, but will be reading more of these kinds of books because I'm learning about the 'younger' students' loves, & I know this is one of them. I listened to the first & loved when they finally figured out they liked each other. This 'take a chance on someone' is what I have discussed in the past with my middle school students too. If they don't get to know someone, think what they might be missing! I'll look for more!

  3. That's so exciting. My son loves the Ivy and Bean books and would love to have the whole set.

  4. Checking out your Ivy & Bean contest before posting on

  7. My daughter and I absolutely LOVE Ivy and Bean! Crossing our fingers! :)

  8. I'm excited about Ivy and Bean day. How will we celebrate in my classroom? Hmmm! I'll have to think of something super fun.

  9. This sounds like a lot of fun. I'll have to start thinking about what I want to do with it in my library.

  10. Very Fun! My students will love all the Ivy and Bean press!
