Description
 
Get Coldecott Honor Book Tops and Bottoms paired together with a 5-piece nesting  doll that depicts the humorous story of a bear entering into a gardening partnership with the wily Hare.  Open the doll as the story unfolds, each inner doll depicted one more episode in the eventful story.

Not familiar with the story, which has its roots in European folklore as well as slave stories of the American South?  The tale celebrates the trickster tradition of overcoming hardship by using one's wits.

Bear decides to enter into a gardening partnership with the wily Hare. Hare tells Bear to choose which half of the crop he wants at harvest time -- the tops or bottoms. Bear chooses the tops, so Hare plants all root vegetables. The next time, Bear picks the bottoms, so Hare plants broccoli, lettuce and celery. Then Bear chooses both tops and bottoms, but Hare still outsmarts him and grows corn, keeping the ears and leaving roots and tassels for Bear. Hare is then able to buy some of his land back and open a vegetable stand.

Small parts, not for children under 3 years.
