Farmer's Market Day

Summary:

It's Saturday! A little girl wakes up and is so excited for the weekly trip to the farmer's market with Mommy and Daddy. She has some money but what should she buy? Veggies, flowers, bread, a floppy hat? As she goes through the market (creating a mess along the way), she finds just the thing: a watering can for her own plants.


Young Readers (3, 5):
My son and daughter liked this book. They loved the illustrations and they related to the little girl and her excitement for the farmer's market. 

Parent Perspective:
The illustrations are cute and brightly colored, it's a relatable story, and the little girl's enthusiasm is infectious. I like this book. I was surprised my kids liked it as much as they did. They thought the main character was so funny and giggled every time she knocked something over.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Bright and clever illustrations combine with a simple but lovely narrative to create a fun Saturday journey.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Type of Book:
This picture book is a guided tour of a farmer's market.
Educational Themes:

With very young listeners, you can explore the illustrations and point to different things on the page (umbrella, cart, carrot, hat, etc.). With a first grade reading level, young readers can practice reading to younger siblings.
