Fresh-Picked Poetry: A Day at the Farmers' Market
It's market day. Hooray, hooray!
This collection of poems takes young readers to a day at an urban farmers' market. Who to see, what to eat, and how produce is grown--it's all so exciting, fresh, and delicious. Readers are invited to peruse the stands and inspect vendors' wares with poems like "Farmer Greg's Free-Range Eggs," "Summer Checklist," and "Necessary Mess."
Bright and vibrant, this is the perfect guide for little ones to take with them on marketing day to inspire literacy and healthy eating.
