A Day at the Market by Sara Anderson (November 1, 2009) Board book - Sara Anderson

A Day at the Market by Sara Anderson
Rhyming children's audio book about Pike's Place in Seattle, WA. We have visited there and not sure we found all the nooks and crannies there.
Found so many little shops hidden that held treasures for us. We even got the fishmongers to toss the fish!
Vegetable and fruit stands held such large pieces.  As the trucks haul their crops around in rhyming tones you hear what is available.
Audio version describes the pictures shown. Don't recall a coffee stand but Starbucks has a shop on every street corner.
We went during April and I only recall tulips being available not other flowers but this book describes everything that is there, even the lower levels.
Loved hearing about others experiences with the market.  Musicians also play in hopes to make money.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
