    This was just an okay book Bean is a likable character, but there was nothing that really made the book stand out More complete review to come.Full review Over the years, I have read a great many books with my nine year old daughter Sometimes, the books were solid books well written, nice characters, good story, but they just lacked that special something that draws you into a story and makes it impossible to put down This is one of those books As a character, I liked Bean For the most pa This was just an okay book Bean is a likable character, but there was nothing that really made the book stand out More complete review to come.Full review Over the years, I have read a great many books with my nine year old daughter Sometimes, the books were solid books well written, nice characters, good story, but they just lacked that special something that draws you into a story and makes it impossible to put down This is one of those books As a character, I liked Bean For the most part, she struck me as a pretty good interpretation of a third grader dealing with the struggles of a third grader The portrayal of her sibling rivalry with her two older sisters was well done, and I thought her worries and fears were handled in a sensitive manner Bean s worry about her upcoming recital is given a gravity appropriate to its importance for a child her age, and was written in a way I found easily identifiable While she is, in general, a good girl, Bean does make mistakes, and I liked that she was reflective enough and had a good enough sense of right and wrong that she was able to work out for herself why she shouldn t do some of the things she did The strongest part of the book is the lesson Bean learns about friendship She allows her hurt and resentment at her best friend to drive her to become friends with Tanisha, a troubled girl who is the school bully While Bean does feel compassion for Tanisha, she also comes to her own realization that Tanisha s behavior is not the way true friends should act While she sympathizes with Tanisha s misguided attempts to reignite their friendship, Bean acknowledges that her relationship with Tanisha is not good for her, and that it results in Bean behaving in a way she knows she shouldn t behave Given how difficult it can be for kids to understand how much they are influenced by their peers, I was impressed by this part of the novel and liked how Bean handled it in a way that was convincingly age appropriate I also liked that Tanisha felt like a fully developed character rather than a cartoon bully.I also liked Bean s growing friendship with Stanley There was a good message in it about getting to know a person before judging them that fits in with one of the big, overall themes of the book Bean s learning to understand that people all have their own hopes, desires, and hurts that drive them to behave as they do Bean learns how to empathize with others.Still, there were some things about this book that I found kind of jarring The adults felt inconsistent to me at times, and I thought the book occasionally delved into territory that would be a little over the head of its target audience.The book is perfectly likable, but it just lacked that certain something I find in really good children s literature I liked Bean, but she wasn t as engaging of a character as someone like Grace, from the Just Grace series Overall, this is a pretty solid first effort

    I received this book in a Goodreads FirstReads giveaway.My 10 year old daughter read it first She gives it a 4 out of 5 stars She feels the character is easy to relate to and the book was easy to follow and read Bean apparently reminds her Alot of herself.Now it s my turn to read.I have to agree with my daughter This is a really good book I see why she could relate to Bean Bean is a typical kid in what I call middle elementary school She feels outshined by her older siblings and left ou I received this book in a Goodreads FirstReads giveaway.My 10 year old daughter read it first She gives it a 4 out of 5 stars She feels the character is easy to relate to and the book was easy to follow and read Bean apparently reminds her Alot of herself.Now it s my turn to read.I have to agree with my daughter This is a really good book I see why she could relate to Bean Bean is a typical kid in what I call middle elementary school She feels outshined by her older siblings and left out when her best friend starts to venture out and make other friends The trouble of trying to find where she fits if something that all kids go through from time to time I can t wait until my younger daughter is old enough to read this as well It lets kids know that everybody goes through the same things

    Chudney Ross has a charming debut in Lone Bean that is faintly reminiscent of the Ramona Quimby books Lone Bean opens with main character, Chrysanthemum Bean as she prefers to be called, bursting with excitement over starting third grade, but Bean discovers the year won t quite be what she expects.Read the rest of my review here Chudney Ross has a charming debut in Lone Bean that is faintly reminiscent of the Ramona Quimby books Lone Bean opens with main character, Chrysanthemum Bean as she prefers to be called, bursting with excitement over starting third grade, but Bean discovers the year won t quite be what she expects.Read the rest of my review here

    Third grade isn t exactly what Bean was hoping for A falling out with her best friend, a run in with the school bully, and a shaky start with stringed instruments threaten to put a damper on her signature spunk, but nothing can stop Bean from trying.I picked Lone Bean from the shelf in hopes of seeing some diversity applied to the realistic fiction genre Unfortunately, the book didn t deliver much in the way of representation beyond seeing a black character on the cover.Overall, this is okay, Third grade isn t exactly what Bean was hoping for A falling out with her best friend, a run in with the school bully, and a shaky start with stringed instruments threaten to put a damper on her signature spunk, but nothing can stop Bean from trying.I picked Lone Bean from the shelf in hopes of seeing some diversity applied to the realistic fiction genre Unfortunately, the book didn t deliver much in the way of representation beyond seeing a black character on the cover.Overall, this is okay, but there are portions that read extremely dated, even for the 2012 release date I d recommend looking at newer releases or classics like Ramona instead

    This was a cute little stroll down memory lane for me This reminded me of all the what seems now like trivial things of my junior teen days I needed to read this book to help me out of longstanding reading slump I m going to pass this along to my niece who ll be close to reading age for this book.

    Bean her real name is Chrysanthemum, but she refuses to use it is a lovely story about an 8 year old girl who has a really rough first day at school She is now in 3rd grade and she is looking forward to seeing her best friend, Carla, whom she has not seen all summer Sadly, she discovers that her best friend is now the best friend of someone else and is ignoring her, there is a bully in class, Tanisha, who is tormenting her, and the teacher seems oblivious to her plight, she has to sit with Bean her real name is Chrysanthemum, but she refuses to use it is a lovely story about an 8 year old girl who has a really rough first day at school She is now in 3rd grade and she is looking forward to seeing her best friend, Carla, whom she has not seen all summer Sadly, she discovers that her best friend is now the best friend of someone else and is ignoring her, there is a bully in class, Tanisha, who is tormenting her, and the teacher seems oblivious to her plight, she has to sit with stinky Stanley as a last resort, and she has no one to sit with at lunch any or play with at recess She is sad and very lonely The reader will watch Bean as she learns how to cope with and solve her problems, makes new friends and renews old friendships, learns to respect the rights of others, and learns the value of understanding right from wrong As she begins to understand that some kids seem different because they are sad or lonely or have health issues or a different home life than she has with her parents and sisters, she becomes kinder andunderstanding and less angry She understands that being mean is not the best way to behave and kindness is a better way to reach someone and make them your friend No one wants to be with someone mean She learns that sometimes acting out because you are unhappy and lonely can be fun, but it can also be dangerous and there are consequences Eventually, Bean learns that sometimes things don t turn out the way you hoped they would, but with patience and kindness, problems do get resolved and you will feel better However, you will have to make an effort also, to help yourself and work your problems out You will have to learn from your mistakes and not repeat them and you will have to work harder to achieve what you want rather than sulk or misbehave.This is a good book to discuss at home or in a classroom setting because the author has done a good job of presenting the issues and conflicts that face young children today as they go about their normal daily lives at home and at school She clearly defines those, using specific examples of bullying, peer pressure, sibling rivalry, friendship issues, loneliness, teacher and parental discipline, disobedience and consequences On the bright side, she also shows the benefits of good behavior, loyalty, forgiveness, true affection and concern for others, working together, and the experience of real happiness when we do the right thing and achieve our goals I didn t like the way the Bean s parents were developed in the story They were too permissive and Bean seemed to lack a sense of limits on her behavior Her two older siblings,Gardenia and Rose, the oldest of whom was in middle school, were largely responsible for her well being, and they were really not mature enough to handle the task Bean s dad was a music professor and her mom was a nurse Gabrielle s mom was over protective and Tanisha s mom was largely absent I thought that the teacher was not as engaged with her class and their well being as she should have been and was not aware of what went on with her students, to the point of negligence Perhaps they were all made into caricatures of real life individuals, in order to better express the problems experienced in childhood.The author speaks in a voice that sounds true to children and the book is probably best suited for 8 13 year olds.I believe children will readily identify with Bean Chrysanthemum and her sisters, Rose and Gardenia, and all the events they encounter day to day My 13 year old grandchild read it and loved it
