Meet Me at the Farmers Market
The sights and sounds of a [big city] farmers market come to life in the pages of Lisa Pelto's new book, Meet Me at the Farmers Market. Ava and her mom buy fresh farm goods every week without fail: rain or shine, at home or on vacation.
Readers will enjoy visiting each booth with Ava and her three friends. Ava describes the produce she likes best in each season. Ava's market offers musicians, face painting and balloon animals. It's the highlight of her week to shop with her mom.
Pelto's book would be a great introduction to children about various kinds of foods prior to visiting a farmers market in their own area. Buying locally grown produce is a fabulous way to not only support farmers but also a great way to enjoy fresh and healthy foods!
I highly recommend this book for school and classroom libraries. It's a perfect supplement for a unit study on food and nutrition.
