    1. A book my 6 yr old loved, a little old for my preschoolers. A solid reading level 4 book, this reader has a good amount of advanced vocabulary words, but not so long that it discourages a new reader. Used it for his read out loud book, which was perfect. It took about 20 mins for him to read and had just enough new vocabulary words to make it challenging. Also, it was a fun and interesting story he could get into.

    2. Stories of Zelda and Ivy are full of insight into the life of sisters everywhere. This is one of a series of wonderful early chapter books for preschool and primary school children. Each chapter is a sensitive, believable and funny story of the fox sisters and their friends.The illustrations are well designed with interesting point of view, and the style gives each image a spark of life. This author/illustrator is among the most kind, gentle, and inspiring people I have ever known, as she genero [...]

    3. This is a great series for beginning readers. The fox sisters Zelda and Ivy go on these hilarious adventures together.

    4. • 2007 Geisel Winner •I thought this was ok. The illustrations are good but the roughness isn’t really my style, and I don’t like that one of the foxes (Zelda) is pink - it’s just sort of weird. The stories are ok, but I just felt kind of annoyed that their parents made sandwiches they didn’t like so they ran away, and when Ivy threw the juice on Zelda I felt sort of irritated and bad for her. Zelda was mad for a second then carried on. I guess she was being positive!Materials used: [...]

    5. I wasn't expecting it to have three different stories, that was a pleasant surprise.I think my daughter will like it, but I feel like I will need to explain to her that one story is ending and another is beginning before I start reading the next story because the chapters don't really build on each other.

    16. This book was a very very simple read. It didn't really have a great "Aha!" moment or moral, like I personally like for children's books to have. Rather, the two girls would change there mind suddenly and go back on what they had done the page before. This is why I only gave the book 4 stars. I do think that the illustrations and overall stories would be great for kindergarten students or students around the kindergarten reading level. I didn't personally like this book very much and probably wo [...]

    20. I'm always a sucker for a book about running away. Zelda and Ivy don't want cucumber sandwiches for lunch. They run away and get as far as a bush in their yard. They hide there waiting for their parents to get worried and come looking for them. SHOCKA! They hear their parents enjoying themselves. They return home tocumber sandwiches.Zelda and Ivy decide to create a time capsule. They put their favorite things in it-a jewel and a doll. Then, when they begin to miss those items, they sneak out ind [...]

    21. I feel as though that is book is missing a good chunk and story and just made up rational events to fill in the story. The only enjoyment I got out of this book was looking at the pictures, they weren't bad but just okay to the human eye. This book would be good to children breaking out of the "picture book phase" and stepping up there reading level to a more progressive, mature reading format. Besides that, I really couldn't get into this book at all. I don't know if a recommendation would be n [...]

    22. Zelda and Ivy are sisters who decide they don't want to have cucumber sandwiches for lunch and that the best way to get what they want is to run away to the back garden. I love the characters, the simple, but compelling plots, and Laura McGee Kvasnosky's bright and bold illustrations. I think beginning readers might find the vocabulary a little difficult, but will be engaged enough to tough through it.

    23. Zelda and Ivy are funny and imaginative sisters. The chapters in this book are really short stand-alone stories about their everyday adventures. I wasn’t crazy about this book because even though I enjoyed each chapter I didn’t like that the chapers didn’t follow a continuous storyline. I would have enjoyed it more if each was a seperate book that was more fleshed out. It would be a good choice for parents with children just beginning to read though.

    24. In chapter one of this three chapter book, two fox sisters, Zelda and Ivy do not want to eat another cucumber sandwich, so they decide to run away from home, but they only get as far as the backyard. In chapter two, the sisters decide to put their favorite items in a time capsule that is until they begin missing those favorites. In the final chapter, Ivy has the perfect solution to Zelda’s writer’s block. Read along as Zelda and Ivy experience the ups and downs of sisterhood.

    25. "Foxy" sisters Zelda and Ivy are sick and tired of cucumber sandwiches and decide to run away in their backyard. After hearing music, they decide to risk coming back. The second installment has the girls/foxes creating a time capsule (complete with journal from their runaway adventure), and the final section has the girls/foxes writing haikus and drinking 'creative' juice. Kids will enjoy these tales and can use them to inspire writing some of their own "true adventures".

    26. Zelda and Ivy are fox sisters, probably 6-7 year-olds. The three chapters are actually three short stories: running away to their own yard, creating a time capsule with their favorite things they can't live without, and making some sort of liquid concoction. Simple stories that a K-2 grader can relate to.

    27. Fox sisters, Ivy and Zelda have adventures, and struggles like every children. First they decide to run away to avoid eat cucumber sandwiches again. They take the most valuable belongings and run not far. Later, they need to select specials artifacts to put inside their time capsule. Finally, Ivy is helping Zelda to find inspiration for her poems. Gr. 1-3

    29. Zelda and Ivy are a nice addition to the easy reader lineup. I like their runaway location very much, and I was also amused by the way their parents handled it. My kids enjoyed it, too. It's on the upper end of the easy reader spectrum, maybe a touch more advanced than something like Henry and Mudge or certainly than Elephant and Piggie.

    30. This book is about two sisters, whom happen to be foxes; Zelda and Ivy. With their adventures and mischief, from Zelda convincing Ivy to be a trapeze artist, or decorating Ivy’s tail, to sharing batons, this book capture the rivalry between two sisters. I would use this book to teach about families and how sisters/siblings relate to each other.
