Finally, a cover that is as cute as the book!

Who would have ever thought that two girls who are so different could be such great friends.  Bean loves to play outside and get dirty. Ivy is always in dresses and can't seem to get her nose out of her books.  The two have nothing in common, until Bean gets caught playing a trick on her older sister and Ivy's quick thinking helps Bean to escape.  Soon Ivy is offering her "witch-in-training" skills to put a spell on Bean's sister and their friendship is solidified.

This is a really cute book.  It is a great simple chapter book, that has large print and illustrations making it very appropriate for emerging readers.  There is nothing inappropriate about the book, but parents need to be aware that Ivy is convinced she is a witch.  Also, Bean is quite a little "smart-mouth", who plays tricks on her sister, much like a little sister would do.
Happy Reading
