To Market, To Market

To Market, To Market by Anne Miranda has been a favorite silly story at the Chino House for years.  It’s a modern take on the old nursery rhyme by the same name.

A lady makes multiple trips to the market for animals that keep running away.

She loses all control of her purchases.  The animals wreak havoc in her house.

I love this page where the lamb is in the dishwasher.  So cute!

crazy market story

The illustrations by Janet Stevens are adorable, like this one where the lady has a duck on her head!

I’ve read this story to many a classroom and I always get big laughs from the kids on this page.

At the end of the story, she goes back to the store for vegetables and makes a big pot of soup for all the animals.

Love it!
