Jumping Beans not only for Children!

Traveling Customers stopped by to purchase their copies of Lucas and His Loco Beans at the Bob Hope International Airport in Burbank, CA on August 19, 2012

Adults too are fascinated by the moving seed segments that will eventually produce small gray moths (Laspeyresia saltitans).

Lucas and His Loco Beans, an award winning bilingual tale of the Mexican jumping beans, is about a boy who visits his Abuelo over the summer and learns all about the jumping beans his grandfather played with as a child.  The cuento is in rhyme with Spanish words interwoven into the text.  The book offers the full biology of the jumping beans and flip-book illustrations showing the moth emerging from the seed.
