This Russian folktale is a lot of fun to act out with a big group of kids. For each badger, call up a kid who pretends to pull out a fake turnip. This book is a lot like Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman if you're looking for a similar story to read around Halloween.

Beautiful illustrations, fun interpretation on a Russian folktale that children will love!
