1.0 out of 5 stars No values. Too sassy, disrespectful and mean.
By Bubu on July 2, 2019
Disgusting behaviors. I screen all books before giving them to my kids because of this reason!! I couldn’t read pass first half of the first book. There are ways to write without being disrespectful and mean. How can you sell books like this to children? Shame on you!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful - mean, hateful and creepy
By sara Boschma on August 16, 2020
This book is appalling. I like my kids to read book with dynamic characters who do good things and bad - who are complex and give us the opportunity to discuss the fact that we all make mistakes. Our job is to do our best and learn from them. Bean is not a dynamic character; she is simply mean.

1. Bean HATES her sister. I get that there is always tension between siblings, but the overall message for kids should be that we love and respect each other. Bean absolutely does not. She tricks, steals, calls her names, and even tries to cast a spell on her.
2. Bean is creepy - like look at other people under the dressing room door, mouth threats to people, and talks about ghosts putting their icy cold fingers around another girl's neck.
3. Bean is mean. She immediately judges her neighbor very harshly mocking her clothes, making fun of her for playing by herself and calling her names. There is no sympathy, no attempt to understand or even get to know the other girl - and they're supposed to be best friends. This is horrible character to show to kids.

Please don't let your kids ready these books. Or at the very least read them with them because the book teaches some very screwed up lessons. And the illustrations are super creepy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ordered despite the negative reivews. Now sending them back!!
By Amazon Customer on December 19, 2014
My 7 year old daughter is in first grade and a strong reader. She recently discovered a love for chapter books and has been devouring the Junie B Jones series. I've been looking to start her on a new series, and a friend told me Ivy and Bean was really cute. I was surprised to read all the negative reviews on Amazon about how mean the characters are. I'm definitely not the prudish type. Honestly, I was thinking people probably just need to lighten up a little. I've been letting my daughter read Junie, so figured these couldn't be much worse. I ordered the books despite the reviews. When they arrived, I read the first book and decided to send them back. It's not that they are a lot worse than Junie (in terms of sassy behavior). It's just that I don't want my daughter to finish one series about a sassy girl and then delve right into another series about sassy girls. I want her to learn to enjoy stories that don't rely on the crude words and naughty behavior. Maybe in another year, when she's had some experience with other books, I will let her read Ivy and Bean, but for now I'm going to try the Ramona books instead.

In case you wanted more details about content, the other reviewers pretty much summed it up. The entire first book is about Bean's contempt for her sister and plotting evil things to do to her. They're hurling insults at each other left and right "dork, dweeb, tightwad" etc. I kept waiting for the feel good ending....the moment where Bean and her sister would make up. Finally that moment came. Bean saw her sister crying and started feeling guilty. Then she quickly changed her mind and decided she hated her sister even more. I have attached one of the illustrations directly from the book. This portrays Bean's sister right after Bean and Ivy threw worms on her face. No thanks.
