Here is another great book that my six year old brought home from the school library last week.
The Giant Jelly Bean Jar by Marcie Aboff was a book that my son picked out for himself and it was a great choice. This book is the story of a little boy named Ben who loves to visit the jelly bean shop. Each week, the owner of the shop has a jar of jelly beans to give away to someone who can answer his jelly bean flavor riddle. Ben is always shy and timid so he never wins the jelly bean jar, even though he knows the answers to the riddles. The day that the jelly bean store celebrates its first year of being open, the owner decides to give away a giant jelly bean jar. This time Ben is able to get over his fears and win the biggest jelly bean jar yet!
My six year old really enjoyed listening to this story. He had fun answering all of the riddles and even wanted to make his own jelly bean jar when we woke up the next morning. We stuck with a baby food jar, so we didn't have as many jelly beans as Ben, but we had enough!
