Jelly Beans for Sale

by Bruce McMillan

Published by Scholastic, 1996
32 pages
ISBN: 0-590-86584-6

Ages 4 - 8

A jelly bean stand staffed by two children provides the basis for an introduction to the monetary values of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. With jelly beans that cost 1 apiece, McMillan is able to show the values of various coins by showing different coin combinations next to their exact value in jelly beans. Appealing full-color photographs on facing pages show the young customers enjoying their purchases. Added notes at the back include information on the history of jelly beans and a description of the seven-day manufacturing process used to make jelly beans today. CCBC categories: Concept Books; Books for Babies and Toddlers.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
