Grandma Ibu's Magic Seeds
Every year, Little Yi-Bu looked most forward to visiting her grandparents during summer vacation. Grandma had grown many different types of beans in the yard. There were many myths about these beans. According to Grandma, those beans were once the food of the ancestors. Little Yi-Bu loved the myths and stories Grandma had told her. She took some bean seeds with her back to the city, hoping to grow beans just as Grandma had done.
