On Monday Jasper finds a bean. In spite of all the attention he lavishes on it, the bean will not grow. But all of a sudden something magical happens.
Listen to an audio clip
Run your fingers down the right side and you will come to one of his paws, sticking out to the right. (Short Pause) At the top, feel an oval shaped bean. It's purple with black spots. Jasper's paw is curled round underneath holding the bean (Short Pause).
Move left across his white tummy to find Jasper's other front paw against his body (Short Pause). Can you feel the three little bumps of this paw? (Pause) Keep moving left. Can you find his black, furry tail sticking up?
