This hilarious retelling of the classic Russian tale about a grandfather whose turnip is impossible to pull from the ground uses simple vocabulary and is ideal for reading aloud. Its cumulative theme will soon have young readers gleefully joining in, counting the animals. Our companion nesting doll (sold separately) beautifully captures Irish artist Niamh Sharkey's wonderfully quirky illustrations, and lends itself perfectly to the counting scheme so that the child is engaged on numerous levels. A personal favorite!
This paperback book comes with a story CD tucked inside the back cover, so your youngster can listen while looking, and opening the nesting doll.
