Baby Goes to Market

author: Atinuke
illustrator: Angela Brooksbank

Join Baby and his doting mama at a bustling southwest Nigerian marketplace for a bright, bouncy read-aloud offering a gentle introduction to numbers. Baby is so adorable that the banana seller gives him six bananas. Baby eats one and puts five in the basket, but Mama doesn’t notice. Cheeky Baby collects more and more foods until Mama notices that her basket is getting very heavy! Rhythmic language, visual humor, and a bounty of delectable food make this abridged version of the original tale perfect for story time.

“The vibrant marketplace is filled with color, texture, and patterns created using a mixed-media palette. . . . Young listeners will delight in getting to know Baby and his mama.” — School Library Journal
