This book made me think more about friendship.

I wish the jelly beans on the cover were able to be turned real so I can eat them. I also liked that there were 3 stories inside. Overall I loved it because it's jelly beans! I mean am I right? The book is about two 4th grade kids who play baseball, win a pizza party, and have the principal spying on them!

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to do every tradition with the word jelly in it plus the ice cream part.
But my mom won't let me have jelly beans that often or take them to school. Only special times I get jelly beans. This book inspired me to think about greedy people.

Really Bad

This book was just OK

This book was not good! None of the short stories inside of it even had a meaning or theme! There was just no point in reading the book.

SO GOOD !!!!!!!!!

I liked this book because it taught a lot of lessons about helping people out. In addition to learning some important lessons from this book about how to be a good person, I also think it's really funny.

My best stories have been rewritten scores of times.”
