"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.

Reader, Parent Librarian Love for Ivy Bean Chapter Books


“These books are fabulous! They remind me of Ramona books when I was a kid. We read them to our 5 year old and she loves them. They illustrate normal kid thinking processes and attitudes.”



“I read ALL of the books in this series when I was in elementary school (I am 17 now) and I absolutely LOVED them. This series truly taught me the joy in reading and creativity, as well as real social dynamics you see in everyday life (even “cheeky” ones, if you may). I highly suggest this series to all parents interested in fueling their kids' love for reading, especially young girls, as I completely adored Ivy and Bean myself!”

“This book is a must read for all young readers. The story is light, quirky, and fun, all readers will love it. It has several laugh-out-loud moments and an upbeat style that readers will love. This book does have some misbehavior, but it also shows how the characters regret their bad decisions and feel sorry about them, which kids need to learn about. I highly recommend this book!”

“Our 7 year-old daughter has really expanded her vocabulary and reading skills with these chapter books. She loves to read the books to find out what kind of “trouble” Ivy and Bean get themselves into.”

“My 7-year old granddaughter loves these books about two mismatched friends and their adventures.”

“I think my daughter loves this series because it appeals to her curious and adventurous and imaginative spirit. While my daughter loves dolls and princesses, she is strong and curious and loves to get dirty-this book series appeals to her spirit.”

“This is an amazing book. My 6 year old loves reading it.”

“This is the ONLY chapter book series that my daughter has fallen for and will re-read on her own. Honestly, the characters are sooo great, and even as an adult, I was enjoying seeing the friendship develop between Ivy and Bean, and seeing what adventures their imaginations would get them into. I find the characters very authentic.”
