Children's Book Review: My Granny Went to Market
My Granny Went to Market: A Round-the-world Counting Rhyme
Written by: Stella Blackstone
Illustrated by: Christopher Corr
Published by: Barefoot Books, 2005
Young readers can join Granny as she journeys around the world on a magic carpet, shopping for amazing treasures in all of the places she visits, and taking readers on a counting adventure through the different countries of the world.
* Told in rhyme, this colorful storybook takes you on a trip around the world. Granny went to market and bought a flying carpet which she uses to travel to Mexico, China, and Switzerland, among several different countries. As she travels to each country she picks up different numbers of souvenirs. The pictures are bright and detailed, giving the reader a little feel of what the countries look like. I thought that this was a cute counting picture book for kids with an early introduction to countries around the world.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
