About The Enormous Turnip

How on earth is the old man going to pull up the turnip that has just grown bigger and bigger and bigger? He definitely needs some help! One by one he is joined by various people and animals who 'pull, pull, pull' with the old man, but still the enormous turnip will not budge. Suddenly a tiny mouse is spotted and with a fantastic team effort, the turnip is eventually pulled from the ground and a turnip dinner is enjoyed by all!

A delightful tale to encourage teamwork and yet reinforcing individual importance.

Far more than just a songbook, this series has been written for use in kindergarten and at home. Traditional, well loved stories re-told through a very simple script and just a few bite-size songs.

This delightful combination of ‘song and story’ will enliven and enrich learning, both in music and literacy, as well as give younger children a manageable experience of performing a mini-musical.

pps goldThe Enormous Turnip is now an award-winning title.

  • What the tester said:
  • The children loved the story, they all sat down quietly and listened. The songs were very catchy, original and easy to learn. The different voices on the CD made many of the children laugh. It is great you can download a script and use it for musicals. We would recommend this product."
