My Granny Went To Market

Today, for our travel series I would like to talk about My Granny Went To Market, A Round-the-world Counting Rhyme written by Stella Blackstone and illustrated by Christopher Corr.

My Granny Went To Market is a fun counting book that is perfect for kids 3-7 years old. Younger kids will love learning to count while enjoying the colorful pictures. Older kids will find this to be the perfect book for first learning to read, with fun details to keep them interested!

In My Granny Went To Market you and your kids will follow Granny as she goes on a worldwide shopping adventure! First travel to Istanbul for a flying carpet, and later head to Tokyo for 9 fluttering kites. With 10 stops in 10 different countries around the world, you are sure to enjoy your whirlwind shopping adventure.

The rhyming text found on each page will help reinforce learning while making the story fun to read:

"Now Africa!" Sang Granny,

"we must wake the morning sun!"
So they spiraled south to Kenya,
where she bought six booming drums.

The colorful images created by Christopher Corr really help make this fantasy story come to life. Children love to point to different images found on each page and imagine what the real country might look like. This of course, opens up many more opportunities for learning!

In short, if you're looking for a counting book that will entertain and engage your child then this is the book for you! You can purchase My Granny Went To Market at my marketplace: http://www.shopbpbooks.com
