If your kids are fans of the Ivy + Bean series of books written by Berkeley author Annie Barrows and illustrated by Sophie Blackall, check out the current production of “Ivy + Bean, the Musical” by Bay Area Children’s Theater. It plays in Berkeley through March 3, then moves to San Ramon and Mill Valley through April 6.

Bay Area Children’s Theater puts on shows throughout the year based on children’s books – their shows are a great way to introduce kids to live theater. Opening in Berkeley in April, “Knuffle Bunny, A Cautionary Musical”, based on the books by Mo Willems.

Ivy + Bean books at the Montclair branch include:

Ivy + Bean
Ivy + Bean and the Ghost that Had to Go
Ivy + Bean Break the Fossil Record
Ivy + Bean Bound to Be Bad
Ivy + Bean Doomed to Dance
Ivy + Bean Take Care of the Babysitter
Ivy + Bean What’s the Big Idea?
Ivy + Bean: No News is Good News
Ivy + Bean Make the Rules

Fun fact I just realized: Annie Barrows is also the co-author (with her aunt, Mary Ann Shaffer) of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
