"Grounded in everyday details of primary-grade children's experiences, Barrows' amusing narrative is just right for the audience. Blackall's expressive black-and-white illustrations brighten every double-page spread while clarifying terms such as divining rod. The twelfth volume in the dependable Ivy and Bean series delivers an engaging story for kids moving up to chapter books."-Booklist
"The twelfth (and final) book about Ivy and Bean finds these best friends still in second grade but hurtling toward their futures by way of career day at school. . . . Blackall's spot art captures the fervor and diligence of the friends. . . [N]ew readers will find funny situations and a fast-moving plot to enjoy."-The Horn Book Magazine
"Many of the children who read the first Ivy + Bean book as second graders in 2006 are now, unbelievably, college graduates. But the series has remained fresh and relevant, offering a perfect first dip into chapter books for a whole new generation of readers. Like the others in the series, this effort combines Barrows' nicely developed characters and her hilarious, easy-to-read take on juvenile adventures with Blackall's spot-on Chinese ink illustrations on every spread, with purely delightful results. . . . [Ivy and Bean Get to Work is t]he final, delicious entry in a much-loved series."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Second-grade besties and neighbors Ivy and Bean get their last hurrah in the final installment of this 12-book series that captivates beginning readers with the girls' mischievous antics. In true Ivy and Bean fashion, their last adventure together-searching for buried treasure-starts off on the wrong foot but ends spectacularly. Young fans come away with food for thought about what really makes something highly coveted. Dare we say these stories qualify?"-Parents Magazine
The adventures that began with "Ivy and Bean" arrive at a rumbustious conclusion with Ivy Bean Get to Work!. Written by Annie Barrows and illustrated by Sophie Blackall, the 12 books in this series for readers ages 6-10 sparkle with humor and smart observations. . . . There's a saying that you can't make old friends, but in the case of children's books it's not true. Returning to characters you've met once, it feels as though you've known them forever. Nice, isn't it?"-The Wall Street Journal

Everyone’s favorite mischievous second grade girls are back with another laugh! There’s a Career Fair at Emerson School, and everyone is interested in treasure hunting. Ivy and Bean and their classmates plan to show off what everyone dug up during recess. The thing is, though, Ivy and Bean can’t find any treasures. While everyone else is finding amazing things, Ivy and Bean can’t help but feel more and more discouraged. Will the two friends find something to show their friends?
This book is great because I thought it was interesting when all the second grade kids were happy to find treasures that weren't worth a lot of money. My favorite part is when the two girls dig up a plastic high-heel shoe full of chocolate chips because it was funny. I highly recommend this book to people who are interested in silly early chapter books. I felt like the drawings were different than the previous books and that Ivy and Bean looked older. My sister and I laughed and enjoyed this book as we read it. We hope there will be more coming out soon. It’s something we can look forward to during the pandemic.
