Another free Ivy and Bean book

Ivy and Bean set out to break a fossil-digging world record in this book, which could be yours for free if you comment below! Just make sure that I have your email address so I can get a hold of you if you win! And three runners-up will be getting a set of mini-notes, Ivy and Bean style. 🙂

Title: Ivy and Bean Break the Fossil Record
Author: Annie Barrows
Illustrator: Sophie Blackall
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Age: Early readers, early elementary school

Remember, when you are done with a book, you don’t have to forget about it. Why not find some fossils with your kids? You could just dig in the backyard, or you could buy a fossil kit at a toy store or museum store, or you could make your own kit: take a toy, break it apart (a lego person or animal would work well), bury the pieces in some dirt or dried beans or rice or soil or whatever you like, and have your kid dig it up and see if they can put it back together and figure out what it was!

And when you are done, come back here because we will be giving away these books every week! To enter, leave a comment below and remember that I need to be able to contact you if you win. So either check back next week or leave an email (if your username isn’t linked to an email, that is.)
