“Travis McBean and His Jelly Bean Machine” is full of happy, hyperbolic fun! Told with plenty of repetition, rhythm, rhyme and chime, this story is a joy to read aloud many times over. Countless students and classes have heard this story and received personalized copies (in which their name takes the place of Travis, making them the protagonist and “star” of the story). This “oohey-gooey-and-oh-so-chewy” jelly bean story is one that “sticks” in the minds and hearts of young readers and listeners. Sugary sweet and a definite treat!
