The Cool Bean
Author: Jory John

Age range: 4-8
So what does it take to be the cool one in school, is it playing a cool guitar, drawing the best superhero, or learning how to slam-dunk? A bean finds out the hard way that it is not dressing like the cool beans, or even driving a fancy car. Being cool our young bean discovers relates to kindness, and when he receives kindness from the cool beans it gives our determined bean confidence that someone was there for him.
Kindness no matter where you are on the cool scale can be given to any bean.
