Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Jellybeans are off to summer camp to enjoy ghost stories around the campfire, roasting marshmallows, and swimming in the lake. Each girl finds her own favorite activity: Emily goes to the dance studio, Bitsy does arts and crafts, and Anna reads about nature. But Nicole can't find anything that's just right for her. So she decides to start a soccer team and teach her friends her favorite game. Will the Jellybeans be able to win the big match against a neighboring camp? Once again, the girls use their different strengths and talents to work together and have the best summer ever. 

This third book in the successful New York Times bestselling series shows that, whether readers are girly girls, bookworms, artists, or tomboys, there is a Jellybean for everyone.

Praise for The Jellybeans and the Big Camp Kickoff

“The tale unfolds with warmth and reassuring humor making this latest Jellybeans adventure a good primer for young would-be campers. Munsingers watercolor illustrations are bright and suggest vigor and happiness, like the Jellybeans themselves.” –Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"For the child who isn't easily fooled into sleep — and the parent who must outsmart him — comes a soothing story that gently coerces little ones into bed. 'When you can't fall asleep,/ Then try counting sheep!/ But what do you do if the sheep are asleep,' beings Numeroff's (If You Give a Mouse a Cookie) reprise of the 'what if' game. Rhyming verse smoothly moves the story along, as a girl and her teddy bear consider other animal alternatives. From pigs that 'snore in a heap' to 'cats on the sofa/ .../ snuggled asleep,' the two soon learn that no creature is immune to the lure of eventual slumber. The rhythm of the verse produces an almost hypnotic effect, the better to act as a sleep-inducing agent for young listeners. Muted watercolor images of dozing creatures tenderly capture the peacefulness that accompanies sleep. McPhail (Mole Music) keeps readers' interest by mixing up the many perspectives from a child's eye — view, be it up close and personal while peering inside a rabbit hutch or observing a nest of birds from a safe distance. The final image of the entire ensemble at the foot of the bed of the now-sleeping girl leaves a satisfying last impression. Ages 4-8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
