Kindergarten-Grade 2-Granny's quest to buy a few specialty items leads to a fantastical flight to the markets of the world. She begins in Istanbul where she purchases a flying carpet and uses it to make her way to various countries, acquiring gifts before ending up in Peru. Along the way, readers practice counting as the woman accumumlates items, such as two temple cats in Thailand and seven nesting dolls in Russia. Bright folk art enlivens the journey and is a perfect complement to the rhythmic prose. Granny's charming imperatives lead the way from place to place and keep the pace perfect for the youngest of readers and listeners. Each page delights the senses and opens young eyes to the world around them. A fresh and lively addition.-Holly T. Sneeringer, University of Maryland, Baltimore

K-Gr. 3. This international counting rhyme combines elements of the "Twelve Days of Christmas" and cumulative folktales as Granny buys a flying carpet from a man in Istanbul and travels around the world, purchasing items indigenous to each country she visits: "'To Switzerland!' cried Granny / as the carpet turned around, / she bought five cowbells there, / that made a funny clanking sound." The brightly colored gouache illustrations have the feel of Mexican folk art, and endpaper maps route Granny's travels, with a one-page legend showing her purchases--from one carpet to 10 llamas. A cheery, global shopping trip, fun to read alone and also useful in the classroom. Julie Cummins
