Get Ready To Celebrate Ivy + Bean Day With Chronicle Books on October 17!

For the last several years I have loved celebrating International Ivy + Bean Day in the fall.  This year Chronicle Books has announced that it will be on October 17.
In 2010, I started celebrating Ivy + Bean Day with my dear friend John Schu.  You can watch this Animoto to see what fun we had at our celebration within our two libraries in Iowa and Illinois.
We had the best time celebrating these wonderful characters and stories that Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall have brought to life.  You can Meet the Author + Illustrator here
On the special Ivy + Bean website, you will find great teachers's guides, reproducible activity sheets and across-the-curriculum lesson plans that you can use to help your students have fun in the classroom or library, just like Ivy + Bean. 

You can check out all of these teacher and grown-up resources here.
 I love the Ivy + Bean Day Activity Event Kit with so many things, just like this...
sweet party invitation. 
You can also sign up for the Official Ivy + Bean Red Hot Reader Fan Club....
and don't forget to share all of these super fun activities with your students so they can have fun at home just like Ivy + Bean.
They can even print out these cool cards to give out too!

Have fun with Ivy + Bean on October 17 and all year long.  This AWESOME website brings the characters we love to life and fills your libraries, classrooms, and homes with tons of Ivy + Bean love.
