Turkey in the Straw


Written by: Barbara Shook Hazen  Illustrated by: Brad Sneed

What happens when a farmer loves to fiddle? Well, his wife frets and his daughter fidgets until the unfortunate day that the gophers come, the cows stop making milk and there is a killer frost. With the farm in disarray they host a fiddling party! Now that music is filling the barn even the turkey starts dancing and soon the fretting and fidgeting are forgotten.

Lil Bug says: She dances so beautifully. So everyone stays square dancing. There is a turkey in the straw and she was fidgety. And then Emmy Lou got married to the stranger. In the beginning of the book they she says we are heading for the poor house but if you stop fiddling we are heading for the nice house.
