A talking yam! Whoever heard of such a thing? Certainly not the farmer in this African folktale, whose yam yaks. And not the fisherman, whose fish declares that yams can speak. And what will the king say when he hears of all this foolish talk? (More important, what will his royal chair say?) Full of hubbub and hullabaloo, this traditional story from Ghana offers an irresistible invitation to young listeners to join the fun.

Too Much Talk based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I made little mini-puppets on popsicle sticks of the talking objects. When it was time for that object to "talk" i brought the object out from around my back and it peeked over the top of the book to "talk". Kids seemed to like the book, and enjoyed doing to the "Aiyeee!" part w/ me, and making hand motions for uphill and downhill, and downhill and uphill.
