Overview

Read this sweet New York Times bestselling series from the author of If You Give a Pig a Pancake, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, If You Give a Mouse a Brownie, and other beloved books.

Friendship comes in many flavors in the launch of a charming new series by Laura Numeroff, Nate Evans, and Lynn Munsinger.

Just as jellybeans are different colors and flavors, each character in this heartwarming friendship story has a personality and pizzazz that young readers will love.

Emily loves to dance and can’t wait to meet the other girls in her class, who are sure to be just like her. But instead she meets Nicole, a tomboy who would rather be playing soccer; Bitsy, who loves arts and crafts; and Anna, a shy bookworm who has no interest at all in dancing. Realizing that they have to work together to make their dance recital a success, the girls learn to love each other’s differences and strengths as they band together and name their group the Jellybeans!

The latest picture book by beloved bestselling authors Laura Numeroff and Nate Evans is as sweet as sugar and features four adorable characters that all children will relate to. With joyful illustrations by Lynn Munsinger that dance off the page, The Jellybeans and the Big Dance will inspire readers to dance, prance, and boogie-woogie to the beat of their own drum.

Well illustrated and welcoming for young readers. Girl-centric, but boys like candy and might get into the idea of the story.

This is a very cute story and an excellent picture book about a girl named Emily who was so excited to be joining a dance class because of her strong passion for dancing. Her excitement turned into disappointment when she found out that the other girls in her class had nothing in common with her and did not love dancing at all. One day Emily brought jellybeans to each of the girls because the first letter of all of their names spelled the word 'bean'. The girls were thrilled about this and they soon began to all get along and enjoy dancing, despite their differences.I would read this to students in kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and thrid grade. A good time to read this book is when students are learning about friendships and the differences in people. Easter would also be a good time to read this because it involves jellybeans.

Emily is a girl who is excited about dance class and when she shows up there are other types of girls there who are not quite as thrilled as she is. Throughout the book she finds creative ways to bring their differences together to make a beautiful routine. Good book about friendship and the reward for hard work. Good for maybe 2nd or 3rd grades.
