In Jelly Beans the Cheetah and Hope, the unlikely pairing of a sad little girl and a captured cheetah discover how much they share in common when they embark on an adventure in friendship. They've both experienced profound loss, but persevere through sharing empathy, kindness, joy, and love. Together they learn about their connection to the human family and to all, which provides for their self-esteem and a feeling of wholeness.

Jelly Beans the Cheetah and Hope is a vehicle for empowering youth with empathy to spring into compassionate action! Compassionate action refers to the positive impact youth can make by caring about the plight of all people. Set in Tanzania, Africa with the Barabaig tribe, the book encourages youth to identify with the characters as they experience difficulty, persevere, model empathy, and then are shown empathy by the tribe. Together, these special friends demonstrate our connection to all, including the endangered cheetah, showing that we all belong.

The opening installment of these books was everything I hoped for. The book is about the love a Cheetah and a little girl develop out of loneliness, and a bond that would not be broken even after the Cheetah was free to, well be free. There is nothing wrong with putting a smile on children's faces, and quite honestly if it does that for me too; which it did, it's all we could ask for! Great book, I just hope they keep making more!

There are so many childrens' books out there that have no meaning behind the words that children are listening to, or reading themselves. Jelly Beans the Cheetah and Hope is definitely not one of those books. It has a strong story, with a compassionate meaning behind it, and  teaches children that they can make a difference by just being kind. With the growing issue of "lost humanity" in today's society, this book is a refreshing reminder that the generations to come can change the way things are going. And through sharing this book with children, I believe that could be one of the steps toward a changed society by teaching them to spread kindness. Definitely a book for all ages; not just children.

Every once in a while a book comes around that has the potential to not only change the way in which we view the world, but also how we view ourselves. Jelly Beans the Cheetah  and Hope, I believe, is one of those books. At a glance, the story revolves around two characters, a cheetah and a little girl that have both experienced loss, but through  empathy and love, are able to better themselves and help those around them. This book is much deeper than just a simple story, it's a story that has meaning, a story that has a  message. Love, empathy, the idea of a shared humanity, these are all messages that need to be taught to children and the adults who spend time with them. With everything  that is going on in the world today, this book allows us to better ourselves and understand that we are all in this together. I absolutely loved reading this book, it's cute, it's colorful, and it's very profound. Read this with your child, start the discussion abouthow important kindness is, let them know that they can change the world

"Jelly Beans the Cheetah and Hope" is a wonderful book that will truly inspire young readers. It teaches children about empathy and compassion through the story of a cheetah named Jelly Beans. We follow him on his journey from loss and rejection all the way through to redemption and self acceptance, all made possible through the power of love. It is a heart-warming book with a positive message and I highly recommend it to all. My daughters love this book and they will treasure it for years to come.

I was blessed to be able to take this journey between the unlikely pairing of a girl and a cheetah. This story flows so very well, it is a great and  exciting adventure. The book brings forward messages of self-esteem, empathy, and joy, in an atmosphere of love and diversity. This story is a fun read, for adults and  children of all ages. The story reads in rhyming verse from beginning to end, a real treat. In Summary, this book (with discussion ideas and other conversation initiators) , entertains, takes us on a journey- however most importantly is an open declaration of love to our human family-
