The Giant Turnip is a children fairy tale of Russian. Though our observation, it is one of the most popular stories among the children who have received library service from SVA. The below photos were taken at a Khna Phtol Primary School in Siem Reap after the inauguration ceremony of a school building supported by Sotoshu Tochigi International Volunteer Association (STIVA) and coordinated by SVA.

The Giant Turnip is a progressive story, in which a grandfather plants a turnip, which grows so large that he cannot pull it up himself. He asks the grandmother for help, and they together still cannot pull it up. Successively more people are recruited to help, until they finally pull the turnip up together

    Hi BCT, this story draws the lovely smiles of children from the beginning to the end.

    Hi Sis, I am sorry that I missed your important day early this month. Won’t you share some photos on your blogs?

    スルンさん、いい写真を撮るには腕の問題ではなく、やはりカメラ、レンズなどの関係もありますね。私もそんな写真の知識が豊富でななく、修行がまで足りないです。
