Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Toddler-PreS—A joyful black baby and his mother go shopping in an open air market in West Africa, where unbeknownst to Mama, baby is busy collecting his own wares from a variety of vendors. The rhythmic text is perfectly suited for reading aloud, and young listeners will quickly pick up on the inside joke between author and listeners as the illustrations feature the mischievious baby on Mama's back, adding his own items to the wide brimmed basket balanced atop her head. "Market is very crowded. Baby is very curious. Baby is so curious that Mrs. Ade, the banana seller, gives Baby six bananas. Baby is so surprised. Baby eats one banana…and puts five bananas in the basket." The pattern of Mama shopping for her own goods and adding them to the basket, and Baby being given treats to snack on and store in Mama's basket, turns the story into a clever count along. Brooksbank's debut as illustrator is strong. The vibrant marketplace is filled with color, texture, and patterns created using a mixed-media palette. The opening and ending endpapers feature the same pattern that is on the wrap Mama uses to hold Baby on her back. VERDICT Young listeners will delight in getting to know Baby and his Mama as they shop throughout the market. Consider for first purchase in larger collections.—Lisa Kropp, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY

Review

The smiling, all-black cast sort through myriad wares, while the text keeps up its rhythm, introducing both typical items bought in a West African market and a gentle lesson in arithmetic as Baby alternately snacks and stashes his gifts. Indeed, no one will be able to resist this baby.
—Kirkus Reviews

The vibrant marketplace is filled with color, texture, and patterns created using a mixed-media palette. The opening and ending endpapers feature the same pattern that is on the wrap Mama uses to hold Baby on her back. Young listeners will delight in getting to know Baby and his Mama as they shop throughout the market. Consider for first purchase in larger collections.
—School Library Journal

Brooksbank's illustrations, based on her own childhood memories of going to market in Nigeria, are full of colours, patterns and prints, and varieties of local transport. Repetition and variation make the book especially good for the young, and its wealth visual detail promises many satisfying rereadings.
—Saturday Star

5.0 out of 5 stars Paperback and board books texts differ
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 21, 2020
We have had the board book for some time and my 2.5yo loves it. I enjoy reading it to him, as do his older sisters. The text is very simple and there is so much to see and chat about in the pictures.

Then I bought the paperback version for a friend's child, for their birthday, and I'm surprised to see that the text is different from the board book. I have included two photos for comparison. These are the main differences:
The names of the market traders are in the paperback version.
In the paperback version, the baby is given characteristics, which are the reasons he is given things by the market traders eg baby is curious, baby is funny etc. Unfortunately, baby is also naughty. I'm not keen on this, as the traders give the things to baby *because* he is funny/sorry/curious, rather than just giving them. For me this takes away from the story a bit! In the board book, it just says 'Baby loves bananas, baby loves bananas so much that the man selling bananas gives baby six bright bananas'.
The paperback version says 'Mama does not notice, she is too busy buying chili peppers/rice/etc' which is omitted in the board book (it is told through the pictures).
There are a few other lines in the paperback, which are not included in the board book, such as 'Mama thinks her sweet baby must be hungry by now' and 'we need to get home quick and fast!'

All in all, we love this book!
