She first told the story of a boy and his love for jellybeans to her then 2 and a half year old son Matthew. Her husband was deployed in Iraq at the time and this story was the bribe that got her son to sleep in his own bed at night. Sleep was hard to come by as it was. Having a two year old rolling around all night in your bed didnt exactly bring a restful night either. Long story short, she decided to turn that fun any-time story about jellybeans into her pride and joy, Jellybeans Morning, Noon And Night.

A truly scrumptious book with a thought that will delight jellybean lovers.

This story is an interesting version of teaching children that too much sweets can make you sick. This story is told in a simple and fun way without preaching to the reader about not eating too much sweets and any other kind of food that is bad for you. The author takes a different and more subtle approach where the children find out in their own way really without the mother saying anything at all, though her actions is what speaks the loudest. She goes along with their plan only to fulfill her own. Very clever! Children between the ages of 4-8 will adore the illustrations while learning a valuable lesson of moderation.
