Books 1-3 from The New York Times bestselling Ivy & Bean series

"Introduce independent readers to the award-winning Ivy & Bean series with this boxed set containing the first three books about two spunky second graders." — Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor

Meet Ivy and Bean, two friends who never meant to like each other: Ivy and Bean are very different. Bean is loud and wild and goofy. She loves to be involved in games and poke her nose in other people's business. Ivy is quiet and full of ideas. She spends most of her time learning how to be a witch. Each girl thinks the other one is weird. Each girl thinks she could never be friends with the other. But sometimes opposites can become the best of friends because they're opposites!

Ivy & Bean's Secret Treasure Box—which includes the first three books in the series—is a delightful introduction to these spunky characters and includes a secret treasure-hiding box with a cool surprise inside!

Book 1: Ivy & Bean: Both girls were sure they would never like each other, but when Bean finds herself in a pickle, Ivy helps out with a magical spell.
Book 2: Ivy & Bean and the Ghost that Had to Go: When Ivy discovers a ghost in the girls bathroom at school, she needs Bean's help to get rid of it as quickly as possible.
Book 3: Ivy & Bean Break the Fossil Record: The girls set out to prove that they broke a record and are in fact the youngest paleontologists in the world.

I have loved reading these books with my 8 year old daughter. They are funny and very enlightening to say the least. We share this time together and have enjoyed the things that these two girls get into. Rebeka can see some of herself in each girl and she gets a kick out of that. I look forward to reading the other books about these two. I know we will enjoy them together.

I bought my daughter her first Ivy&Bean book when she was 8. She doesn't like to read much, and yet she couldn't put these down. Now she is 12 and she still enjoys reading the new one that comes out and adds it to her collection! ;) She says they are fun and silly!

My 7 year old wasn't really into reading until we purchased this set, she couldn't put them down. I was even catching her reading under the covers with a flash light at bed time! she can't wait to get more Ivy and Bean stories to fill up her book shelf.

I have two girls, 5 and 7, and we checked the first two books from the library. After being immersed in the books for a few days I knew this was the type of book we'd love for our own book shelf and it's been a great purchase. My 5 year old seldom listens to chapter book readings from myself to my 7 year old during our bedtime routine, but the illustrations were enough to grab her attention. I often see my 7 year old re-reading the book by herself, and my 5 year old peering through the pages and asking how to read certain titles and sentences to figure out exactly what the pictures are about. This is really one of my favorite kids' chapter series and I believe it's one of my daughters', also. I look forward to reading what Ivy and Bean are up to, also...absolutely!

This is a quote from my six year old niece. I purchased this set for her for her birthday and they were a big hit.

I bought Ivy and Bean for my 7 year old granddaughter for Christmas. She cannot put them down! Better than electronic games, her favorite gift! These books spark a child's imagination!

This series has been a favorite for every child I have given it to. The Treasure Box gift set is a more economical way to purchase it and the kids love the box.

My 1st grader loved getting this set. The tiny surprise book was a much loved hidden treasure. The book characters are fun and engaging. Her teacher recommended it and we are very happy with this choice.

It is hard to find books for my little book worm, but these fit perfectly. She can't stop talking about the two friends and she has flown through the three books in a week and a half. I have to go and buy the rest.

On a whim I got this set for my reluctant 8yr old reader. She instantly fell in love with, and related to Ivy. By chapter two she was hooked. I introducedthe book by readingthe first chapter out loud toher and her 6yr old sister. My 8 yearld took the nookfrom me after that and readthe nexttwo chapters to her sister and I. I'm so glad to have found such a great series of books that shecan read and enjoy!
