Adapted from Aleksey Tolstoys The Turnip, this tale about teamwork and sharing in an extended African-American family is bubbling with warmth and Southern-style cooking. A great read-aloud, it also makes a natural introduction to units on seeds and growing or gardening.--"School Library Journal." Full color.
