Laura Numeroff and Nate Evans
You may recognize the name Laura Numeroff, as the author of several books including; If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Give a Pig a Party. She takes that darling love of child like animals and brings it to a board book for little girls. Complete with a glittery tutu on the cover, this book from abrams appleseed will have you reading it again and again!.
Emily loves to dance, but her friends have other interests. Emily dances all of the time and is so excited about their first dance class, but her friends aren't. As they learn the moves for the dance recital, Emily takes in all of the moves and shows them off in excitement while the other students just bide their time. Emily is afraid that she will not be friends with any of them since they have such different interests. Emily comes up with an idea to pull the team together for the best performance ever.
I loved Emily's imagination and team work, being a leader of the dance group and finding ways that they can each use their own gifts. She pulls them together to be The Jellybeans and they share in the candy treat after a great performance.
There are five books available about the Jellybeans!
