School Library Journal - 03/02/2024 PreS-Gr 2—John's delightful bean is back in this title for developing readers. Bean is at the pool happily treading water when he sees the "cool beans" come by. They are quite an exciting sight as they leap off diving boards and make a wave so large they can surf on it. Determined to be more like the cool beans, Bean spies a large water slide and is determined to ride it. When Bean's nerve fails him, he receives help from an unexpected place. John's humor shines through, and Oswald's bright colors and the character's expressions make this a must-have for early reader collections. VERDICT Recommended for all early reader collections, especially ones with a need for humorous selections.—Maria Graybosch - Copyright 2024 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
