    1. THINGS I LEARNED FROM IDA B.That.ere is more than one way to tell each other things, and there's more than one way to listen too. ThatEven when you think you're in heaven, you need to stay alert and have a planbut some things are very hard to plan for. ThatWhen your heart changes, you change, and you have to make new plans. ThatSometimes our head knows something, but our hearts refuse to feel it. ThatSometimes our unhappiness is the quiet kind, that doesn't do much and says even less. ThatA warm [...]

    2. Reading this book made me feel that maybe, just maybe I've been reading too many MG books of late. It did get better after a point and has its heart in the right place, but it made me want to break the monotony in my reading habit.I couldn't help but compare the protagonist to the one in Flipped, and while the character of Juli Baker is one you cannot help falling in love with, the love for nature somehow seemed forced in Ida B.That said, it made for an easy read and also carried an important le [...]

    3. Ida B. is an only child in a perfect world. She spends her days making miniature rafts with questions attached like, "What is life like in Canada?" Her best friends are the apple trees, with whom she has long conversations.Then one day the apple trees are worried, daddy seems worried, and mommy doesn't seem the same. Her parents tell her that her mother is sick and while she's trying to get better, Ida is going to have to stop being homeschooled, and instead go to school in town. Ida is furious, [...]

    4. In this book, I saw so many similarities between the character and myself. This quote describes how I reacted to things many times growing up. Quote: "I couldn't do anything except curl up like a ball on the floor of the barn and lie there, crying. The kind of tears that burn your eyes, and the sort of sobs that make your chest ache so that you're sure it's going to bust open. And when the sobs finally ran out, the tears kept coming, so I lay there with my mouth wide open, but I hardly made a so [...]

    5. After finishing this book and failing to find words for how much I loved it, I checked out some other people's reviews here and on for inspiration. I was surprised to discover that a lot of people think of it as a book about environmentalism. I can kind of see that if I squint, but for me the message about loving nature was a much softer undercurrent, not the main point of the book at all.For me, this is a book about Big Feelings, and about a child going through those feelings for the first tim [...]

    6. I am getting old. All I could think as I was reading about Ida B. proceeding from one bratty, precocious, stereotypical only child action to the next was "Get this kid stricter parenting!" The story is this: Ida B, her parents, and their many animals live on many acres of land with trees and a brook. Ida B loves to take her animals to the brook and talk to the brook and the trees, which she has given names and which talk back to her. She went to school (for like three days btw) and hated it, so [...]

    7. I wanted to read something yesterday when I was in bed with the flu, and I wanted a story. My currently-reading list is all nonfiction right now, but Ida B, with its brightly colored cover, called to me from the bookshelf. What a fun, quirky character Ida B is! I read the entire book quite quickly. Althought it's a little younger than the other YA books I read (Ida B is a fourth grader), this is a delightful story written in a creative and humorous voice. Just what I needed for an uplifting read [...]

    8. I. Love. This. Book. Why didn't it win an award? It's brilliant, and it has all the right pieces: a loveable main character, gorgeous prose, and a plot so realistically drawn that it's easy to fall into. It struck a chord with me, and I found myself laughing even as tears poured down my face. Such a beautiful, beautiful novel--first novel, especially. This book is made of win, and everyone (especially teachers!) need to read it. Now.5/5 on here, 10/10 for myself

    9. 3 Stars (Read Aloud to my 8 year old)Ida B is quite like Pippi Longstocking - unpredictable, imaginative, whimsical & spunky. That was refreshing. The plot, however, was meandering, and bits of it were odd (talking trees & brooks.) I thought some sections were written beautifully, whereas my daughter's eyes glazed over. The prose was almost too lyrical and wordy for its intended audience (grades 4-6). All in all, a mixed bag.

    10. This is the kind of book that would have depressed the heck out of me for weeks when I was little. Ida B. is a very charactery character. She is precocious. A trait I have never enjoyed in others. As an only child she has had a lot of indulging. Her imagination is lovely. She loves a good plan, which I can totally get with! She has the run of a large piece of land with trees, and water, and mountains. Ida B.'s mom becomes ill with breast cancer and Ida B.'s bubble of perfectness pops. She must g [...]

    11. The B could stand for "Brat." She is a likeable character--because I do hearing her voice throughout the book, no matter how at times it seemed a bit too advanced for a 4th grader--but she's still a brat. Too much of the only child home-schooled with little interaction with society so she has gotten too used to her own way, her own feelings, her own everything. In short, SELFISH. And is she ever! And yet the story is told in such a way that you can't help be at least a little sympathetic for her [...]

    12. Ida B is a simple girl that loves her mom, dad, and the nature that surrounds her. Katherine Hannigan's book is most appropriate for readers in grades 5th and 6th grade. Ida B talks to the trees in her orchard and the stream that runs through the property, and all is seemingly perfect until her mom becomes sick. Ida is sent to school, some of the land has to be sold and life for her changes so much that she becomes resentful. Throughout the book she is battling with her thoughts and her feelings [...]

    13. This book is a little golden nugget of profound wisdom. :-) Maybe it touched me so because I found so much of myself in Ida B; maybe because I identified with her feelings and her struggles; maybe because I had my own hardships in life, different than hers and yet much the same. In the end, I think the reason I loved this book so much is because I understood Ida B. We react in the same ways. And then we feel bad about it, and we try to fix it, and ultimately find peace in the patchworked relatio [...]

    14. I love this book a lot I like how Ida B was a different girl from the regular ones. She had a thing that no one can change about her. I really like the part when she talked to the apple trees and when they respond back to her and when she had really long conversations with them. When you are reading the story it makes you feel that you are living the life that Ida B is living. Sometimes she had her bad days and stuff with her mom when she was sick of cancer and when Clare and her became friends [...]

    15. Another gift from a dear friend I read this to my children. At first, we had a hard time following Ida B's conversations with the trees, but once we had a feel for Ida B we figured it out. I loved seeing into Ida B.'s heart, and I appreciated how it reminded me that we don't always understand what is hurting others or why they act as they do I cried bucketfuls at a couple different spots--I think it made me hard to understand.;)

    16. Honestly, I didn't enjoy this book to the slightest extent. I am aware the story was supposed to be a depressing, angry story. And I just didn't like that. After I finished it, I felt very relieved and happy it was over, and I felt like I needed to do something happy to make up for that angry book.-Lulu

    17. I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH, EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ IT, IT'S SO ADORABLE AND I LOVE IDA B. READ IT. NOW.

    18. Thank you, Ida B, for all of your words. Thank you, Katherine Hannigan, for writing all of them down. Thank you, Mrs. Washington for your wisdom. Thank you Ronnie for being so persistent.

    19. I think it is a really lovely story about a girl who experiences some really hard things and feels all the hurt so deeply. I kept waiting for her parents to just sit down and talk with her about what they were going through, especially her mom, but I guess if that had happened the story would have stopped right there. It just seems counter to the parents that were introduced in the early part of the book, but that's just me being picky I guess.I read it aloud to my girls, and some of the colorfu [...]

    20. This book UGHI wanted to like it But Ida UGHB should stand for brat.She is downright selfish. andOH MY SHE TALKS TO TREESShe apologizes to TREES while she should being apologizing TO HER PARENTS.And when new kids came to live on the sold property, she screamed made signsLike I MEANTotally unrealistic 1 star.I would give half a star but1 Star

    21. This reminded me very much of Prairie Evers. I thought the writing was lovely and my heart truly hurt for Ida B. having to deal with so much and not knowing what to do about. I think overall I preferred Prairie Evers, but this was still a good book. Recommended for readers who like a quieter story focused on a character, and also people who appreciate imagination.

    22. Ida B lives a comfortable, home-schooled life on a farm with lots of land, until her mother starts a battle with cancer.A sweet little story that does a nice job describing childhood anxieties and coping reactions when a loved one gets sick and life changes.

    23. I really liked this book the story was very touching I liked the way it ended and that Ida B was happy again. Her mom got cancer but she didn't die.

    24. I picked this up thinking it'd be a quick fun read to distract me from the nasty cold I was trying unsuccessfully to recover from. That it was. But it was so much more. If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. Ida B is a brilliant character perfectly expressed by Hannigan. She is fun and vivacious and sweet and unpredictable with a limitless and charming imagination. But when things get tough, she is overwhelmed and has to find her own way through a genuine heart-wrenching crisis. Hannigan h [...]

    25. Ida B is an inspirational story that shares the life of an eccentric, young girl. This realistic fiction novel is perfect for all children struggling to be themselves in a world full of imitation. Ida’s unique personality and bright imagination encourages self-confidence and exploration. Ida faces several challenging events within the story, but her determination and the bond with her family helps her to overcome these hardships. I really enjoyed how the author, Katherine Hannigan portrayed th [...]

    26. “when your heart changes, you change, and you have to make new plans.” ― Katherine Hannigan, Ida B. . . and Her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the WorldI read this book when I was a kid because it was on the Texas Bluebonnet Award list. I loved it. Rereading it as an adult, I still love it! I love how little Ida B. is a spunky mix between Scout from "To kill a Mockingbird", Fern from "Charolette's Web" and Junie B. Jones. Her vivacious and ambitious nature are a [...]

    27. I remember once i was about to brake something that my mom gave to me, because i was angry at her, but before i could do so i realized how doing that would affect me. My hand clasped the jar she had painted, and images flashed through my mind of how, when i broke that, more than those pieces of clay would lay broken and scattered on the ground. All throughout life i think we face those kinds of challenges, a hurdle that asks you to chose between yourself and someone else, no matter what decision [...]

    28. I read this book so long ago, I can't remember much about the when. What I do remember is how much I loved the story and the quote that was printed at the top of the front cover from Kate DiCamillo that caused me to read the book in the first place. It read, "I feel a deep gratitude that Ida B exists." At least, that's how I remember the quote having gone. In any case, it's a good quote and a true one. I feel the same way. Ida B is one of the few unparalleled joys that children's literature has [...]
