Front Cover
Barefoot Books, 2006 - Juvenile Fiction - 24 pages
0 Reviews
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.
