Storyteller. Once upon a time there lived an old man. Once spring he sowed a turnip seed.
Grandpa. Grow, little turnip, grow big and sweet.
The Sun. Grow up, little turnip, grow up! It’s warm!
The Rain. Drink, little turnip, drink and grow!
Storyteller. Look, there are green leaves on the turnip. Soon the turnip will grow.
