The Enormous Turnip

Thanksgiving Turkey by C Moore age 10

I do not have a Sunday sketch ready, but my daughter and my son just handed me their Thanksgiving Turkeys so I have scooted to post them! Our Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend; tomorrow is the holiday and today we will have our turkey feast!

Turkey of Plenty by T Moore age 13

from my daughter's 7 Year Wonder Book,
by the elvin folk who often visit!

The three of us also decided, to post this wonderful autumn sketch and poem left for us by the elvin folk in our daughter's Seven Year Old Wonder Book - a book we will love to share in future.. This sketch and poem depict the autumn story of a very large turnip and how it took a whole family of friends working together to pull it from the ground - it is an old Russian tale, perfect for reading by the fire, you may remember one of its many versions from your childhood!

  1. Hello to all - This is an adorable sketch. what a great idea, everyone working together! We are having a fire pit later today, I will have to look for that story!

  2. Heather here are a couple of links to retellings of the Russian tale of the Giant Turnip. In our version, a chapter in Isabel Wyatt's, Seven-Year-Old-Wonder Book, the characters are slightly different; a child, a lion, a bear, a fox, a rabbit and a mouse to match the child and his stuffed animals in Wyatt's wonderful tale. I truly must post about this book and its magic soon - right after Halloween - there is a magical way to read this book to children that I simply must throw out there! I will share this soon - I promise!
