Title: 10 Turkeys In The Road

Author: Brenda Reeves Sturgis

Illustrator: David Slonim

“Ten turkeys blocked the road one hot and hazy day. A pickup screeched. A farmer beeped. One turkey flew away.”




One day a poor farmer is traveling down the road when he comes across ten circus turkeys determined to distract him. Suddenly he is without a ride and wondering who will come to his rescue?

Why you should read it:


Take a cute story, add some tricky turkeys, throw in one frustrated farmer and what do you get? A fun children’s counting story accompanied by delightful illustrations to entice young and old to come see the circus!
