The Jellybeans are off to summer camp to enjoy ghost stories around the campfire, roasting marshmallows, and swimming in the lake. Each girl finds her own favorite activity: Emily goes to the dance studio, Bitsy does arts and crafts, and Anna reads about nature. But Nicole can't find anything that's just right for her. So she decides to start a soccer team and teach her friends her favorite game. Will the Jellybeans be able to win the big match against a neighboring camp? Once again, the girls use their different strengths and talents to work together and have the best summer ever.
This third book in the successful New York Times bestselling series shows that, whether readers are girly girls, bookworms, artists, or tomboys, there is a Jellybean for everyone.

In the third adventure starring the Jellybeans, so named because they are "all different but along great," they head to Camp Pook-A-Wow, where Emily happily takes dance classes, Bitsy makes macaroni necklaces, and Anna contentedly reads under a tree. But Nicole, who lives and breathes soccer, is dismayed that there isn't a team, and though she tries other sports, nothing suits her. In classic Jellybean fashion, the girls start their own soccer team, then celebrate Nicole's winning goal by wolfing down jellybeans. Though it's a simple story, readers who value their close friendships should appreciate how the girls encourage one another to succeed. Ages 3–7. (Mar.)
