Turnip is simply so big that man must enlist help of grandmother, who enlists help of granddaughter, who enlists help of dog, who enlists help of cat, who enlists help of one of the largest mice I've ever seen to finally unearth the turnip.
"The Enormous Turnip" is a Level 2 book. And it is a good starting place for children who are beginning to read at this more difficult level. There is lots and lots of repetition that gives practice with not only new words, but a page that is increasingly busier with print.
Compared to Green Light Reader's Level 1 books, this book has slightly smaller print and many more words and sentences per page.
Still, my kindergartener didn't have too much trouble reading it. The word choices are simple and repetitive, and the only problem she had was loosing her place on the page due to the increase in number of sentences.
Three Stars. [C+]. Marvelous artwork. Colors are dark and rich and full of fun. A great opportunity to say, "Oh yes, my kindergartener (first grader...) loves Tolstoy. Story gets old quickly though due to the repetition.
This is a lovely story that will excite children's imagination, and the beautiful illustrations will charm young and old alike.
I would recommed this book for kids who are just learning to read on there on. The book is prefect for grades 1-2. When the kids are able to read the book by themselves they will feel great about their reading skills.
This is also a storybook that teachers and parents will enjoy reading aloud.
