It was morning and time for Princess Jellibean to continue her adventures. After bathing, having breakfast, and brushing her teeth, Jellibean packed everything and continued along her way. She had a bluebird singing a happy song for company. As they traveled together his tunes turned her walking into skips. She had brought a few of her favorite books and she sat down with one after several hours of traveling. Jellibean was lost in the pages of a circus story about a happy clown with an elephant best friend. She heard a voice and saw a small creature who introduced herself as Penelope and said she was lost. Jellibean thought helping someone was a good way to spend her day. She got Penelope Possum into her wagon and they made their way to find her family. Would they be able to find Penelope's home?

Mama's Map: Jellibean Adventures Book 2 by Cindi Handley Goodeaux is an adorable adventure story filled with loads of action, fun, adventure, friendship, and finding new things. Princess Jellibean, the multi-colored cat, will enthrall young readers and, with Penelope the Possum, she makes the adventure memorable to readers. Sanghamitra Dasgupta gives a good pace and movement to the story with her bright and colorful illustrations and gives the characters each a personality of their own. The story will win the hearts of all animal lovers. It is a good book for storytelling at home and in schools as it captures the joy of traveling, adventure, friendship, and helping others beautifully. It is a perfect way to teach children life lessons when it comes to helping others in need.
