No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


On Monday Jasper finds a bean. In spite of all the attention he lavishes on it, the bean will just not grow. This deceptively simple story encompasses a wealth of material to stimulate children's learning and imagination - days of the week, the passing of time, what plants need to grow, magical beanstalks and giants! This audio version by Timothy Spall - with specially composed music - will enchant listeners, and also provides a perfect complement to the book for all adults using it with children learning to read. The second side has the reading without music and with page-turn signals.
