#TBT Reviews: Ivy and Bean series

It was a happy day when we discovered Ivy and Bean in our house! We’ve read nearly every book in the series, with reviews on The Reading Tub for The Ghost That Had to Go and Ivy and Bean Make the Rules.  I don’t know that I’ll ever get any more reviews written – but I’d love to make sure readers find out more about as many of the books in the Ivy and Bean series as possible. So p-l-e-a-s-e add your review link to our collection!

Chronicle Books, 2006 to 2014

from Ivy and Bean Make the Rules:

Bean’s older sister Nancy is going to Girl Power Camp for spring break. Bean COULD go to puppet camp, but that’s for “babies.” So she and Ivy set up their own camp in Monkey Park. The activities are ironically “just like” the ones in Nancy’s camp, but somehow they don’t turn out the same.

Why a Throwback Thursday for Book Reviews?

Those of us who blog about books are a community. We read lots of books, we write lots of reviews, and we share those reviews with fellow book lovers and those in search of books for children and teens on our blogs, websites, and via social media.

We write so many reviews that, over time, they get buried by other, newer reviews. BUT! that book we read three years ago will always be new to some reader, somewhere. So why not share that review with a new audience?

Everyone is welcome! Here are the participation guidelines:

  • If you reviewed the same book we’re featuring, add your permalink to the original review on the Reading Tub website or in the InLinkz Linkup.
  • Want to (re)share a review you posted in June 2009, then add your permalink in the InLinkz Linkup. [No, it doesn’t have to be a book you loved; but it does have to be a review you take a lot of pride in.]
  • Add any notes about the review in the comments, please.

The spammers have been having a blast with our Throwback Thursday posts … now its your turn to take back blogging from those nuisances. Did you review Teach Us, Amelia Bedelia? Or another book from May 2009? Add it to our linkup above or comments below.

Too late for the #TBT linkup?

No worries, add your review on our review page at the Reading Tub.
