A TALL tale about the power of teamworkWhen sweet Little Isabelle?s family plants a carrot seed one day, tall Papa Joe, wide Mama Bess, and strong Brother Abel all do their part. But when Little Isabelle wants to help too, Brother Abel just laughs. ?What can you do?? he asks. ?I?ll sing and dance to the carrot to make it grow,? she says. ?And come summer, we?ll have little cups of sweet carrot puddin?.? Sure enough, that carrot takes a fancy to Little Isabelle?s singing and dancing and grows to an amazing height?proving that great things can be accomplished when everyone works together.Based on an old Russian folktale, and complete with a scrumptious recipe for carrot puddin?, this wonderfully humorous story shows the strength of teamwork and the power of a touch of imagination.
