Ivy and Bean Get Scientific

November 27, 2010

Ivy and Bean What’s the Big Idea
written by Annie Barrows, illustrated by Sophie Blackall
Chronicle Books, 2010
early chapter book

In What’s the Big Idea, the school science fair gives second graders, Ivy and Bean, their most scientific adventure yet – their mission: to solve global warming.

Of course, it’s NOT going to go as planned. So, get ready to laugh along with these charming young friends who won’t stop until they find the best way to solve their environmental issue, no matter how many ideas they must try.

What’s the Big Idea, the seventh Ivy and Bean early chapter book, just might be the best Ivy and Bean yet.  Young scientists’ brains will be spinning with ideas and inspiration after reading this book which is perfect for most seven year olds.

I love the Ivy and Bean books for their age-appropriateness, humor, and well written characters and plot lines. It’s is a series you can read in any order; once you like one, you’ll want to read them all. And, you can become a Facebook fan of the series, too!

Book Play: After you read What’s the Big Idea, go to the Activity Guide. Ideas like “What Endangered Animal Am I?” and “Ice Cube Toss” will keep you thinking about the book and the environment.
