To Market, To Market

Anne Miranda’s inventive twist on a classic rhyme tells what happens after a shopper goes “to market, to market, to buy a fat pig.” Back home the pig promptly escapes, and soon the pig’s in the kitchen, the lamb’s on the bed, the cow’s on the couch--and the rest of the animals are wreaking havoc throughout the house.

As an early childhood educator, in the public school system, I have found this book to be almost magic with 4 & 5 year olds. The rhyme, rhythm and cadence of the text is perfect. The illustrations are captivating. You won’t be sorry purchasing this lovely book!
