Ivy + Bean, The Musical

Based on the New York Times bestselling children’s books series by author Annie Barrows and Illustrator Sophie Blackhall, Ivy + Bean, The Musical is the story of an unexpected friendship between two very different second graders. The moment they saw each other, Bean and Ivy knew they would never like each other. Bean is loud, wild and goofy. Ivy is quiet and full of ideas. But when Bean plays a joke on her sister, and needs a place to hide, Ivy comes to the rescue. There’s mischief and laughter—along with learned lessons about the challenges and joy of family, friendship and love.

    I love how the books demonstrate how two girls who are seemingly so different find themselves relating so well to one another. The whimsical nature of the series makes them fun and exciting!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this fabulous prize!

    I love how these books teach working together to solve problems while still having fun! When we asked our youngest daughter what HER favorite Ivy and Bean part was, she replied with “when Bean threw worms on her sister!” I can totally see our two daughters doing this to each-other..LoL! Our family would love to see the musical! It would be like bringing the books to life!!!!

    My son loves these books. Although it is about two girls, they are written to appeal to both genders. There have been a lot of shows for girls and it would be nice to see one for boys as well.

    I really like how 2 very different girls come together to be good friends!
