Once upon a time, Bean and her mom decided to take an adventure. They drove from Boston to Alaska. For that long drive adventure Bean only have toys, books, drawing tablets, crayons and lots of pillows on the mattress that he and his mom slept during the adventure. When they got hungry, Bean would push open the sliding windows and lean through to the front of the truck, and announce: “Bean’s Café is open for business! May I take your order?” (Bean, 1997).
