This cheerful collection of verse offers an enticing introduction to farmers’ markets — Booklist
In her first picture book, poet Schaub celebrates farmers' markets in 18 buoyant, mostly rhymed poems; readers can follow two children and their respective dogs through one such market in Huntington's (Grandma Drove the Lobsterboat) airy watercolors. The poems sing the praises of the edibles on sale at the market, as well its sights and entertainment. "Get your roasted sweet corn here!/ Can't be beat this time of year!" reads "Sally's Sweet Corn," while "Delightful Bites" highlights the market's delicious smells: "Alluring aromas float over tent-tops a whiff of vanilla, a whisper of spice." Occasional moments of excitement (one of the dogs makes a beeline for a table of free fruit samples) capture the bustling energy of an outdoor market. Ages 4 8.
