Strega Nona's Harvest (Reprint) (Paperback)
about this item
Strega Nona, Tommie dePaola's beloved benevolent witch, reveals her secret "growing spell" to her neighbor Big Anthony as they prepare their gardens for the fall harvest. But when Big Anthony gets a little too enthusiastic with the spell, the pair ends up with an overwhelming bounty of veggies to share with their neighbors and friends. Young readers will be so delighted with the antics of dePaola's endearing characters that they might not notice that they are receiving a valuable lesson about sharing and learning some fun Italian vocabulary words.
