Mia’s biggest wish is to have a pet and her absolute favourite pet would be an elephant. But her mom thinks along more practical lines. And thus Mia gets a bean. “It’s alive, too,” mom says, “You have to take good care of it.” Fair enough, Mia thinks, so, this bean is now my pet. Taking care of a plant animal is a great thing. The baby bean turns into a small plant which Mia takes for walks in a baby buggy and feeds with lemonade from the garden hose. But a bean is a bean and because Mia thinks, anyway, that her bean needs more freedom, she finally sets it free in the garden.
This humorous picture book story is as light as a summer breeze and shows young children how much fun it can be to take care of something all by themselves.
