Raisins, please.
Cookies to munch!
Stringy cheese!
Chips to crunch!

It's picnic day and we're filling up our grocery cart with our favorite goodies. Wait! Do we have the right number of items to check out at the special 10 Items or Less register? This rollicking rhyme features playful illustrations of children's favorite supermarket staples. From peanut butter and cookies to juicy watermelon, shopping will become an adventure as children count the number of items (up to ten) placed in their shopping carts. Complete with ten press-out pieces and a large fold-out page at the end, young readers can place their items (press-out pieces) on the picnic blanket (fold-out page) at the end of the story. This board book is sure to making counting to ten fun over and over again!

Jana Christydid much of the art for this book during hurricane-force winds on a small island off the coast of Nova Scotia flags flapped and walls shook in a house that looks remarkably like the house in this story. Sheloves drawing girls with attitude, boys with pluck, the chickens that wander around her garden, punks, robots, cavemen and zombies, bleak weather, windy days, sea creatures, and more. She loves creating handmade minibooks with her husband, exploring new places with her children, and letting her brain and brushes wander. She lives in North Adams, Massachusetts.
