Ivy & Bean Blog-A-Bration Week 3 +Giveaway

As you know here on The O.W.L. I highlight books at all ranges of middle school readers (and in my middle school that's grades 5-8), because of this I was super excited to be asked to participate in the countdown to International Ivy & Bean Day on October 13th!

These 9  weeks are going to be fun!!!!

Each week I'll be highlighting a different Ivy & Bean book plus hosting a giveaway! Then on week 9 - all the previous winners will get a chance at a super awesome prize!

Before I get into all those details I want to first talk about this week's book:

World record fever grips the second grade, and soon Ivy and Bean are trying to set their own record by becoming the youngest people to have ever discovered a dinosaur. But how hard is it to find one?

Who here remembers The Brady Bunch???? And who here remembers the episode where Cindy and Bobby decided to try and break a world record?  They tried to have the longest consecutive teeter-tottering.  I just remember that they fell asleep in the middle of the night. I loved it at a young age, and now older I love the innocence of it.  You know what else has that innocence??? Ivy & Bean books!!!!!

To learn more about Ivy & Bean check out the websites below.
