In this episode, Amanda tells the classic fairy tale of The Enormous Turnip.
When Farmer Macdonald begins to harvest his turnips, he sees one turnip has grown bigger than all the rest.
In fact, it is the biggest turnip he has ever seen and he’s going to need a lot of help to pull this one out!
The Enormous Turnip is a cumulative tale and its simplicity makes it hugely popular with children and great fun to join in with.
