In the second Jellybeans book, Anna and her friends Emily, Nicole, and Bitsy remain, like the candies, “different flavors [that] go well together.” When their class has a Book Bonanza, book-loving Anna is excited, but her friends' expressions suggest they would rather be doing other things. Luckily, the librarian helps each Jellybean find the perfect book. And when Anna gets stage fright reading her report to the class, her friends give her support. Though the story line feels thin, the characters sweetly express friendship dynamics in a group setting. Ages 4–8. (Mar.)
