Angeline Jellybean ~ Book Review ~ Crystalee Calderwood

Crystalee Calderwood's Angeline Jellybean is the perfect gift for this Easter season.

Angeline wants to eat nothing but jellybeans. Year round, from Easter to Christmas, she asks for her favorite treat. But a strange event teaches Angeline that there's such thing as too much of a good thing! With colorful, delightful illustrations by Stephen Macquignon, Angeline is sure to win over hearts of young picky eaters everywhere.

As quoted from an unsolicited review on

"I was planning to save this for my son's Easter basket, but gave up on waiting and I'm glad I did. He absolutely loves it! We have (literally) hundreds of books in the house, but he's picked this one at bedtime every night this week. The thing is, my kid is a pretty picky eater, so I think he can *totally* relate to Angeline, and he goes into fits of giggles every she says "Blah!" when her mom tries to get her to eat healthy stuff. We love the illustrations -- my son's favorite is the fun picture of jellybeans doing jumping jacks in Angeline's tummy. Will it make my picky eater love salad? Not a chance, but I appreciate the opportunity to gently reinforce my efforts to get him interested in healthier choices. At the conclusion, he's taken to renaming her "Angeline Saladean!" which cracks us both up.

Thank you, Crystalee and Stephen!
