Beans

Palmer’s mother says Beans has a “mean streak.” Palmer’s father says he’s a “pip.” Until the end of the book, Palmer would follow Beans anywhere. Explain each person’s perspective. (explain why Mom feels this way and why Dad feels his way). How would YOU describe Beans?

  1. His mom thinks that Beans has a mean streak because he messes with Dorothy. And his dad thinks he’s a laid back goofball because his dad understands him because he’s a boy. And I think he is ignorant boy and he needs to be in juvenile because he is mean to palmer’s mom and he acts up.

  2. I think Palmers mother thinks that because she thinks of Dorothy like her own daughter and Beans is mean to her. Palmers’ dad thinks he’s a pip because he’s a little wired. I would describe him as weird and gross I think that because he offered Palmer and the guys a muskrat.

  3. I think that when palmer’s mom said that he had a mean steak that he was a mean person who did everything bad. And that when his dad said that he’s a pip that he ’s a goofball and that he tries to be funny. Also I think beans is very strange and he is bad very bad and has problem. I think this because he nailed a carcass to Mrs. Gruzik door.

  4. I think his parents think of beans that way because he has changed Palmer and how he acted at Palmers party &he is sort of unordinary. His mom actually thought he is a hoodlum. His dad actually said he’s a boy. (For example he put muskrat carcass at Dorothy gruziks door.)

  5. I think that palmers’ mother thinks that beans has a “mean streak” because of beans terrible behavior and his disrespectful comments. Also I think that,
    The reason that palmers’ father called beans a “pip,” was because of the weird things that he does. The way that I would describe beans is as a disrespectful disruptive little ignorant girl bullying carcass freezing nothing better to do but tell other people what to do and where to go heathen.

  6. Palmer’s mom says that Beans has a mean streak because he was mean to Dorothy by kicking the bean bag off of the square when she was playing hop scotch and his mother says that he is a he was a trouble maker and was a sneak. Palmer’s dad says that he was a pip because Beans was acting like a goof ball and he was crazy. The way I think that mom feels about it is that she is that she is really mad because she was tired of Beans sneaking and being a troublemaker. The way I think that dad feels is stupid because he saw Beans doing really crazy things. The way I feel about Beans is that he is funny because since he is kind of crazy he could do really bazaar things and that could really crack me up.
