A Lot of Beans by Barry Varela-ADVISABLE

Varela, Barry.  Serra, Sebastia.  A Lot of Beans, 32 pgs.  Harper Collins Publishers, 2010.  $16.99.  Inside Cover:  “Every night, Juan has a tradidion:  If it’s been a good day, he drops a white bean into a jar; if it’s been a bad day, he puts a black bean in.  But what happens when a whole month of black beans days go by?” I really liked this book!  It taught me a lesson that not all days can be good days and that happiness comes with good friends and family.   I also learned that you can make stew with beans!  The book was entertaining and had great art work.  EL (K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Student Reviewed:  JL- age 8.
