A couple of things that most young readers have an interest in: dinosaurs and world records. I was the same way. As a young reader growing up in the tiny town of Parma, Michigan, I can remember wearing out copies of The Guinness Book of World Records (I was always fascinated by the world’s tallest and shortest people), and I can remember reading and reading every dinosaur book in both our town and school library. I am finding today that the young readers I meet each year in my classroom are also giant fans of dinosaurs and world records.
Annie Barrows has combine these two loves of mine in Ivy + Bean: Break the Fossil Record. The first time reading this book I kept thinking about how much I would have loved this book when I was a young reader. As I read Ivy + Bean: Break the Fossil Record I could picture myself in Miss Frey’s third grade classroom sharing this book with her.
If you are having a difficult time thinking about how to get your young readers started in the Ivy + Bean series, I suggest you start with book three. Who wouldn’t want to read a book that combines the awesomeness of dinosaur bones and world records?
