Join Baby and his mama at the bustling marketplace for a bright, bouncy read-aloud offering a gentle introduction to numbers.

When Baby and Mama go to market, 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. As Mama and Baby wind their way through the market stalls, cheeky Baby collects five juicy oranges, four sugary chin-chin biscuits, three roasted sweetcorn, two pieces of coconut ... until Mama notices that her basket is getting very heavy. Poor Baby, she thinks - he must be very hungry by now!

Now in baby-friendly board book format, rhythmic language, visual humour and a bounty of delectable food make this a tale that is sure to whet little appetites for story time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Beautifully colourful and vibrant." * The Green Parent *
"[...] full of wonder and magic." * Rebel Tribe Blog *
Atinuke's story about a baby exploring the sights and sounds of a bustling African market is perfect for early years readers, with lots of fun counting and food naming elements to focus on. That it is set in a busy mega African city is a great way of sharing with young children amazing corners of the world that may not resemble their own. * The Good Wide Web *

Author Atinuke, who was born and grew up in Nigeria, draws on her African cultural experiences to create this timeless tale that was a huge hit with both our big and little testers.
A charming introduction to simple counting, Baby Goes To Market is a real treat, with the colourful illustrations evoking the mouth-watering food, hustle and bustle and bright African-print fabrics of the market - there's plenty for little ones to engage with visually here - and the rhythmic language and humour toddlers and pre-schoolers love.
