“A truly scrumptious book with a thought that will delight jellybean lovers.”— Shannon McGee | RATED 5 STARS
A truly scrumptious book with a thought that will delight jellybean lovers. Two brothers have a creative idea on how they can bring mom around to the idea of having jellybeans for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The art in the book is stunning. Made with colors not just for around Easter when jellybeans are most popular but designed for everyday story.
These two little boys come up with a smart idea for their mom to let them eat jellybeans. The Mother of course says “ If I don’t eat jellybeans, morning, noon and night then neither do the boys.” Is so cute how determined those boys are.
“Draws you into its pages in anticipation of a rollicking time with the kids.”— Vera Godley | RATED 5 STARS
Just looking at the cover of this bright, delightfully illustrated book and seeing the expressions on the faces of the three children who are the inventive characters of the story Jellybeans Morning Noon & Night simply draws you into its pages in anticipation of a rollicking time with the kids.
Now the two boys simply love jellybeans and they enlist their cousin to help them convince their mother that they can have them to eat morning, noon, and night. The plan is devious for certain. The kids are determined. Their plan is to be the chefs for the day and serve their mother each and every meal – incorporating jellybeans into the mix in a delightful way.
Of course, mother is smart and goes along with them knowing full well that in the end, they will see the folly of eating jellybeans all day long. Smart mom. Smart kids. Happy ending.
The author, Maggie Pajak, as the wife of a deployed serviceman was full time story-teller to her boys while daddy was deployed. Therefore, she has the wonderful dedication in the front of the book “…to all of the soldiers who are not able to tuck their little ones into bed with a night-night story while serving their country and all of their little ones who wish that they could.” Commendable! Much appreciated!
The use of strong, vibrant colors and intense black lines and the joyous, smug, delight expressed on the kids faces. The kids marching through the kitchen or shouting up the stairs just engage the reader or child fully in the story.
