Snow is coming, coming soon, and Rabbit must hurry to his home before it falls. First he must find food, and he happily unearths not one but two turnips! Thinking that Donkey might not have found a meal before the snowfall, Rabbit deposits the extra vegetable as a gift on her doorstep. Donkey, returning home with a potato, decides to pass the turnip on to Goat for the very same reason. The circular fable continues until the turnip returns to Rabbit’s doorstep. Not knowing who to thank, Rabbit brings his friends together to share it. Gorgeous paintings reflect the warmth of each animal’s generous gesture in a winning tale that will delight and satisfy. (Ages 3–7)
