Reviews

The last line [drives] the message home: all kids can be cool if they're kind.--Booklist
Cool beans indeed.--Kirkus Reviews
Oswald's pipe-stemmed limbs, googly eyes, and accessories give these anthropomorphic legumes lots of personality.--Kirkus Reviews
John's good-hearted text makes [hay] with the bean puns...--Kirkus Reviews
This is a gentle, sweet story of how generosity and kindness are the true qualities to champion, and offers a great example for young readers and an important reminder for older readers. A strong addition to any collection.--School Library Journal (starred review)
as character-driven, pun-filled, and hilariously illustrated as its predecessors.--Booklist
Witty wordplay ("I was officially a has-bean") and silly gags in the digital and watercolor illustrations (The Great Gatsbean, A Midsummer Night's Bean, Leguma Beach) help downplay the didacticism and up the cool factor.--Horn Book Magazine
