Narration was fine, but I object to the terrible example Bean and Ivy are setting in this book. Bean and her sister are horrible to one another, Bean is mouthy with her mother, and they spend the entire book doing things they have expressly been forbidden to do by Bean's parents. Instead of modeling the kind of behavior we want our kids to have, it instead provided an opportunity to talk about why their behaviors were unacceptable. That being said, I would rather have listened to a book with more likable characters.
