Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debby Willett
From a young child's perspective, a trip to the supermarket is an adventure! The magic of an automatic door begins the journey and a grocery cart only adds to the fun — how fast can it be filled! From there the smells and colors of food is the draw to keep going. His mom has chicken planned for dinner tonight, so that is the first stop but more dinners are planned. Vegetables and fruits are added to the cart. Then, lots of things that are cold are added from the dairy case —milk, eggs, butter, and cheese. There is so much more to add to the cart. Still, the most important thing to get are the things for his birthday party the next day. Small children love to go on adventures and the supermarket is no different. This book is a delightful quick trip through colorfully illustrated pages. Age appropriate for young children who don't understand the concept of "shopping for groceries" will soon put the two together. Ms. Rockwell's illustrations in this updated version use acrylic gouache that results in bright colors on white backgrounds. Reviewer: Debby Willett
School Library Journal
PreS—First published in 1979 as The Supermarket, this book has an updated text and new artwork. A boy and his mother go to the grocery store, but this is not just any shopping trip. They buy fruits, vegetables, meat, toilet paper, eggs, and bread, but they are also getting the ingredients for his birthday cake. "Uh-oh! We almost forgot the little sugar sprinkles. But I remembered," he exclaims. The well-written narration explains their trip from start to finish, including how the checkout line works. The brightly colored gouache illustrations on white backgrounds show the child helping to fill the cart and feature such items as produce and a container of ice cream alone on the page, making identification easy. This is a fun, educational read-aloud.—Kris Hickey, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH
Kirkus Reviews
Rockwell's 1979 classic gets a makeover with new illustrations and an updated story. As in the older version, a young boy and his mother go to the grocery store together. Their grocery cart fills with staples likely to be familiar to readers-bread, milk, eggs, grapes, carrots, paper towels and soap for laundry and dishes. Throughout the trip, Rockwell captures the eager helpfulness of the young boy, as well as his anticipation-the final groceries are the ones that will make his birthday cake. Thanks to brightly colored gouache illustrations, readers go to the store with the pair-no matter what store parents shop in, the artwork reflects commonalities, and the close-up views of the groceries are generic yet easily identifiable. While it's a shame this update does not do more to include ethnic diversity in the foods acquired and depicted, its quiet clarity is sure to attract newcomers who appreciate the simpler pace of life it reflects. (Picture book. 3-6)
