Editorial Reviews

The New York Times - Sarah Harrison Smith
…a big, delightful book with full-bleed watercolor pictures in happy, bright colors…The rhyming narrative, told in the girl's voice, is charming and exuberant…
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—A little girl wakes her parents at the crack of dawn, announcing that it's Saturday (just what every parent wants!). But not only is it Saturday, it is also market day. She has a purse full of change and is ready to spend it on a treat. As the family explores the sights, sounds, and textures of the market, the child rushes from stall to stall, trying to decide what she'll buy. Ice cream? Fruit? A kitten? Finally, and predictably, when she decides, she is satisfied and wiped out-until next week. Rhyming couplets on each page bounce along just like the effervescent youngster. The illustrations are full of color, whimsy, and energy. Young readers have plenty to pore over here-fruits and vegetables to identify, dogs to admire, action to follow. Adults will smile at the little girl's enthusiasm and tornadolike path through the market. This book will be enjoyed whether or not readers have experienced a farmer's market.—Susan E. Murray, formerly at Glendale Public Library, AZ
Kirkus Reviews
A Saturday at the local farmers' market is more fun for a little girl than a carnival. Already dressed to go, with a little yellow purse on her arm, she wakes her parents up very early by shaking her piggy bank. Next thing you know, she's pulling her red wagon through aisles of fresh vegetables and fruits, parents trailing behind (and doing damage control). Sampling the produce is part of the adventure: "Juicy cherries in a bunch, Let's buy a basketful to munch." Next come the flowers, in myriad colors, then the Adopt-A-Pet stand. She'd like a kitten, but Dad starts to sneeze. There are bakery tables and fresh honey from a bee farm ("chewy, sticky, sweet, and runny"). Vendors sell a variety of craft items, from birdhouses to decorated watering cans. She picks one that's just her size, decorated with pink flowers. When she reaches the end of the market, her wagon is full of purchases, and she's very tired. Her parents have to carry her treasures so that she can ride. "Let's bring a friend next Saturday." Trent packs a lot of learning into her simple story, told in bouncy verse and attractively illustrated by Dippold in bright colors. A pleasant adventure that young readers will want to emulate. (Picture book. 3-6)
