There's Michael the apple vendor who uses the grafting method to grow apple trees. My daughter (both of us love gardening) liked reading about the care that goes into maintaining a healthy apple tree. We then read about Colin and Genine the kale growers. It was interesting to read that there are different variations of kale with interesting names like Dinosaur and Red Russian!
Steve the smoked salmon vendor explains the process of making smoked salmon with three essential ingredients - healthy, fresh fish; rock salt; and, alder smoke. We also learned how honey is procured, how blueberry turnovers are baked, the process of making napkins using traditional Japanese methods, and how a mother-daughter pair makes cheese.
This picture book is a delight on so many levels - the text is informative but not dense or full of jargon (which makes it a great read for children) and the vivid and unique cut paper illustrations render each picture a wonder to look at and peruse. The final scene of a happy family settling down to a simple yet hearty meal puts a nice finishing touch to the book. Highly recommended!
Author Nikki McClure, whose cut-paper art nicely illustrates the story, visits the Olympia, WA, Farmers Market every week. All of the people pictured in the book are real vendors at her local market. In addition, McClure did extensive research on who makes the food she eats and how it gets to market. So as the boy and his mother shop, they tell the reader how each item is grown or made so that it can grace their table and fill their stomachs. Did you know that there are over 6,000 farmers markets in the United States alone? To Market, To Market will encourage people to buy locally, eat healthy, and discover new foods. It is a unique and fascinating way to introduce youngsters to how food is grown, prepared, and brought to market. Perhaps the "way it used to be" is the wave of the future.
I love this book as an educator and mother because it describes the growing, preparation and selling process of food products using technical terms (rootstock, scion, alder smoke) which is great for young children who are little sponges for this kind of information. I've read this to children from 2 - 10 years old and they all love it, but the age that loves it most seems to be about 2-7.
The pictures are stunning, the story is nice ( I like the fact that the smoked salmon and honey sellers trade their products, and that the author thanks the beekeeper, as well as the bees for the honey) and it's a great way to promote an appreciation for local products and small farmers in young children.
inspires children to know their food sources
the text reads so authentically and comfortably as a real market experience
my five year old loves this book
