Grandma Lena's Big Ol' Turnip

Denia Lewis Hester

Categories: Foods & Nutrition , Gardening , Washington County Library

Resource Description

Grandma Lena takes good care of the turnips she plants in her garden. One turnip grows so big that Grandma can’t pull it out of the ground! Even when Grandpa, Uncle Izzy, and the dog help Grandma yank and tug, the big ol’ turnip doesn’t budge. This story is a great introduction to the genre of tall tales.
