Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Bruce McMillan's Jelly Beans for Sale, is a superbly photographed and designed visual discourse on the ways pennies, dimes, nickels and jelly beans-at a penny a bean-add up to 25 cents/ beans. It demonstrates anew his gift for making the mundane mesmerizing and immensely satisfying. Readers of all ages will grin along with the candy-color-clothed kids as they buy and enjoy their sweets. Youngest readers will discover what a quarter's worth, older ones will learn jelly beans' history, how they're made, where to send for a video tour of the JELLY BELLY factory, how Mr. McMillan planned and "shot" his book and more in this mouthwatering treat for the eyes-and mind.
Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
Crystal clear close-ups and stunning color are the hallmark of photographer and children's author, Bruce McMillian. Here, he captures the unabashed joy of children and jelly beans-then uses it to teach coin values, counting money and addition. These candies must be those juicy Jelly Bellies, President Reagan's treat, as the vibrant shades jump off the pages, leaving the reader hungry for more. A short history of jelly beans is included, but, no samples. This would be a delicious way to teach one-to-one correspondence, but not so great for instructing kids to wash their hands after they handle money. A sticky situation, indeed.
Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Colorful, appealing photos accent this initial experience in the counting and valuing of money. Using the popular jelly bean as a subject, the author challenges the reader to calculate the proper sums of the different combinations of beans and small denominations of money. Math made fun!
School Library Journal
Gr 1-2Yum! Brilliantly colored jelly beans selling for a penny apiece provide the scheme for McMillan's wonderfully clever concept book about money. Beginning with monetary values and clear photos of pennies, nickles, dimes, and quarters, the book follows a happy group of kids across full-color pages as they buy those delectable treats. "1 = 1 jelly bean" features one penny offered for one red candy and a child dressed in a red shirt eating the same. Even the photographed border is a closeup of jelly beans. The transactions become more involved with five pennies, one nickle, two nickles, one dime and so forth. Each double-page spread highlights different coins, different colored beans, and kids in coordinated shirts. More closely related to curriculum needs than Barbara Barbieri McGrath's The M & M's Counting Book (Charlesbridge, 1994) and more fun than Tana Hoban's 26 Letters and 99 Cents (Greenwillow, 1987), Jelly Beans adds up to a best buy. An excellent math concept book from an author/illustrator with an eye for color, children, and counting.Beth Tegart, Oneida City Schools, NY

    A great way to learn about money

    My son, five, is obsessed with this book. He's very interested in money, but not yet clear on actual coin values and this book is a wonderful way to learn those values. Highly recommended.
