PreS-Gr 1-A little girl wakes her parents at the crack of dawn, announcing that it's Saturday (just what every parent wants!). But not only is it Saturday, it is also market day. She has a purse full of change and is ready to spend it on a treat. As the family explores the sights, sounds, and textures of the market, the child rushes from stall to stall, trying to decide what she'll buy. Ice cream? Fruit? A kitten? Finally, and predictably, when she decides, she is satisfied and wiped out-until next week. Rhyming couplets on each page bounce along just like the effervescent youngster. The illustrations are full of color, whimsy, and energy. Young readers have plenty to pore over here-fruits and vegetables to identify, dogs to admire, action to follow. Adults will smile at the little girl's enthusiasm and tornadolike path through the market. This book will be enjoyed whether or not readers have experienced a farmer's market.-Susan E.

Big, busy watercolor illustrations, equally suitable for showing to single listeners or to groups, track the progress of an overstimulated young child as she wanders through a large farmers’ market. It’s fun to watch as she catalogs in rhyme some of the products found there: “A forest—green with broccoli trees, / cucumbers, and pods of peas. / Bushels brim with fruit to eat: / Tomatoes, plums, and peaches—sweet.” As stallkeepers look on benevolently (unlikely!), she leaves a trail of knocked-over baskets, uprooted plants, spilled samples, and other chaos behind for her frazzled parents to clean up. They also must carry all their purchases home after she blithely empties the family’s little red wagon so she can be pulled home. This will probably spark some comments from adult readers about good behavior, but this tribute to a popular alternative to grocery store shopping earns high marks for exuberance. Preschool-Grade 2. --John Peters

Bushels brim with fruit to eat:
Tomatoes, plums, and peaches - sweet.
Juicy cherries in a bunch,
Let's buy a basketful to munch.
Cheery and colorful illustrations really bring the market to life. Young readers will see varied colors of fruits, vegetables and flowers along with lots of patrons. This is a great way to teach beginners about the various products, shopping and pricing. Parents can teach colors, shapes and new words from the simple sentences found in this wonderful story. Families can have their own adventure at their local market which they can incorporate into teaching children healthy eating.
