A jelly bean stand staffed by two children provides the basis for an introduction to the monetary values of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. With jelly beans that cost 14 apiece, McMillan is able to show the values of various coins by showing different coin combinations next to their exact value in jelly beans. Appealing full-color photographs on facing pages show the young customers enjoying their purchases. Added notes at the back include information on the history of jelly beans and a description of the seven-day manufacturing process used to make jelly beans today. (Ages 4-8)
