My Granny Went to Market

With just a few days left in the Global Giveaway contest, I thought I'd highlight a few of Barefoot's travel-themed books.

Let's start with My Granny Went to Market - A Round-the-World Counting Rhyme!




Granny starts in Istanbul, where she buys a flying carpet - then she takes off around the world on her flying carpet to buy all sorts of things in all sorts of places...


Three fierce and funny masks from Mexico!


Six booming drums from Kenya!



Nine kites that fluttered in the breeze from Japan!


But best of all, she met me
in the mountains of Peru,
where she gave me ten black llamas
and a magic carpet too!

The pictures are colorful and fun, and you can count Granny's purchases one to ten on the last page.  I think every kid should have such a generous and adventurous Granny!

My Granny Went to Market is a paperback, available for $6.99.  And if you use the discount code you get when you enter the Global Giveaway, it will only be $4.89!
