This book is about four friends who all have very different interests, but are great friends anyway. One loves to draw, one loves to read, one loves to dance, and one loves to play soccer. However, what they have in common is their love for jellybeans. So they go to the candy shop and are given a project to paint a mural on the wall outside. They each use their special skill set to create something wonderful that goes perfectly together, just like their friendship.

For this book I would have the

This is quite a fun picture book about 4 friends who are very different with very different interests apart from their overlapping love of jellybeans! The four are friends despite their differences teaching a great lesson to readers. They also draw from their strengths to work together on a project with a wonderful result.

When the owner of Petunia's candy shop needs an attractive mural for her shop, artistic Bitsy convinces her three friends, all of whom have different talents, to help her. I like the way the friends are all different and have different hobbies and yet still manage to support one another. Even when Bitsy is stumped for what to paint, they urge her on. Of course, it's fitting that they are paid for their work with the very candy that gave them their names--Jellybeans. Fans of this series--this is ...more

A subtle lesson that tells us even though we are all different, we can all get along anyway.
Bitsy LOVES to paint.
Emily LOVES to dance.
Anna LOVE to read.
And, Nicole LOVES to play soccer.

They're just like jelly beans: different flavors that get along well with one another.
Mrs. Petunia Dinley-Sneezer, onwer of Petunia's Candy Shop 'commissions' them to paint a mural on her wall. Just like the Jellybeans, the mural is colorful, full of togetherness, and joyful!

Cute story!
I like the concept of the friends all liking different things, but all working together.
With four main characters, it could get a little confusing, but it doesn't in this book.
The problem in the story centers around one character, but they all work together to solve it.

With four main characters, each child reading the book is BOUND to find someone to relate to!
Great illustrations too.

This book is about four friends who each love doing different things. However, they have one thing in common: their love of jellybeans. The friends learn to use each of their special talents to create a special project together. This book is great for explaining that it is okay for friends to have different talents. When you come together and put your special talents together, you can create something much greater.

Fun, very sparkly book about how everyone has a different thing they are good at. A wee bit heavy-handed at times, but overall, it has nice resolution and a solid story.

Art is pretty nice, with the animals being surprisingly realistic looking.

Few enough words-per-page to make it a possible storytime book.

Sweet story of friendship between three very different girls. Lynn Munsinger's easily recognizable picture style always cause instant conversation between me and my daughter, remembering all the other fabulous books she has illustrated that we have shared.

The Jelly Beans--four friends who like to do such different things as paint, play soccer, read, and dance--paint a mural on an outside wall of Mrs. Petunia Dinkley-Sneezer's candy shop that depicts them each doing what they love best.

My school does a restaurant theme and that includes a candy shops, and this was one of the younger picture books I found to do with the PreK - 3s. They sat still for it though some of the boys seemed to loose interest.

Has Lynn Munsinger's appealing animals characters, and a good story about working as a team on a project.
