Week 8 of the Ivy and Bean Blog-A-Bration!

It’s week eight of the Ivy + Bean Blog-A-Bration and we’re giving away a paperback copy of book eight in the series, Ivy and Bean No News Is Good News. And like last week, we’re also giving away 3 sets of Ivy and Bean Mini Notes. And we’re finally ready to reveal the Super Secret Really Cool Prize that will be part of the Ivy and Bean Prize Pack:

This is Ivy
The really cool prize is a set of Ivy and Bean dolls by one of the greatest doll makers ever (if you ask me): Madame Alexander. So during week 9, a Grand Prize Winner will be chosen from all of the previous winners to receive:

  • A complete set of Ivy and Bean hardcover books signed by Annie Barrows
  • 1 set of Ivy and Bean Paper Dolls
  • 1 Ivy and Bean Button Factory
  • 1 Ivy and Bean READ Poster signed by Annie Barrows
  • Set of Ivy and Bean Silly Bandz
  • Set of Ivy and Bean stickers
  • AND a set of Ivy and Bean dolls from Madame Alexander

And this is Bean

  2. Our library learners were thrilled with the Ivy & Bean books on our bookfair this week. The two dolls would add to our library display. fingers crossed and hoping! ;-)

  3. My daughter (six) and I started reading the Ivy and Bean books together. She is having a wonderful time ... and I am too! It is her first book series! I loved reading books in series when I was growing up ...
    I want to do all that I can to encourage and support the enjoyment of reading ...
