This is based on a Russian fairy tale recorded by Aleksei Tolstoy in the nineteenth century. Illustrated by Niamh Sharkey
This is a delightful story about an old couple who need help to pull an enormous turnip out of their garden. You can read it out loud with gusto to the delight of listening children. Watch their faces as this tale progresses. More and more animals join the “tug of war” with the stubborn vegetable, but will they succeed?
A wonderful story of teamwork and collaboration.
