About this product
- DescriptionWhen Ma Farmer gets a hankering for some sweet potato pie, she decides to plant a sweet potato in her garden. But when it comes time to harvest, the sweet potato has grown to be so ermous that it is stuck! So Ma grabs Pa, but the sweet potato still wont budge. Soon Bessie Cow, Ralphie Dog, and Kitty Cat join in to help; that sweet potato sure is stubborn. When itty-bitty Lily Mouse offers to help, everyone soon learns that a small and mighty effort can yield GIGANTIC rewards. This sweet adaptation of the Russian folktale The Giant Turnip features vibrant watercolor illustrations to accompany the singsong text. Ma Farmers secret (and kid-friendly) recipe for sweet potato pie and sweet potato fun facts complete the book.
