Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Young children see the passage of time through the seasonal changes to the world around them in this charming book, illustrated with Nikki McClure's extraordinary cut-paper art. A little boy who can't wait for summer keeps asking his mama, "Is it summer yet?" Mama says, "Not yet, little one", then points to the signs that spring is turning to summer — the softening of the earth, the nest-building of squirrels, the singing of birds — and encourages her son to savor the beauty of spring.

Following the success of All in a Day, Nikki McClure once again uses her unique paper cutouts to showcase wonderful images of nature and the joys of family and the outdoors, creating a book that is both timeless and fresh.

Review:

"Though the first pages of McClure's (All in a Day) latest inhabit familiar territory, exploring the world of a small child in simple language ('Today is Market Day. The farmers load their trucks with carrots and squashes, pears and mushrooms, fennel and chard'), intervening spreads offer more complex descriptions of the sources of the market's artisanal food. 'To plant his orchard, Michael traveled to old orchards and collected scions, small cuttings of branches, from the trees laden with the best fruit.' Michael appears on the left behind a dense network of leaves and apples, opposite a careful account of his work. 'Thank you, Michael, for these crisp new apples,' the description concludes. The effect of each closing benediction is that of a grateful prayer. McClure's papercuts of windblown hair, vegetable leaves, craftsmen at work, and beds of hay continue to delight. This is, in effect, two books in one: younger readers can stick to the gentle introductions to sections about kale, smoked salmon, honey, blueberry turnovers, cheese, and even napkins; older children will appreciate (and have the patience to sit through) each product's path to market. Ages 4 — 8. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Known for art that celebrates the virtues of community, hard work, and living gently on the planet, Nikki McClure here explores a topic close to her heart: the farmers market. Alternating between story and fact, this lovingly crafted picture book follows a mother and son to the weekly market. As they check off items on their shopping list, the reader learns how each particular food was grown or produced, from its earliest stages to how it ended up at the market. To Market, to Marke is a timely book that shines awareness on the skill that goes into making good food.

Synopsis:

This lovely book illuminates all the possibilities a day offers the opportunities and chances that wont ever come again and also delivers a gentle message of good stewardship of our planet. Newbery Medal winner Cynthia Rylant's poetic text, alongside Nikki McClure's stunning, meticulously crafted cut-paper art, makes this picture book not only timeless but appealing to all ages, from one to one hundred.

Home School Book Review, July 16, 2011 (view all comments by Home School Book Review)
Quick! Where does food like fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs, and cheese come from? Of course, silly, from the grocery store. Well, not always, and there’s more to it than just that. More and more people are turning to local farmers markets to find fresher and healthier foods. In this book, a young boy and his mother go on Market Day to shop for Michael’s crisp apples, Colin and Genine’s kale, Steve’s smoked salmon, Benjamin’s maple honey, Evan and Emma’s blueberry turnovers, Heather and Katelyn’s goat cheese, and even Yukie’s hand-dyed napkins. What will they do with all this good stuff?
Author Nikki McClure, whose cut-paper art nicely illustrates the story, visits the Olympia, WA, Farmers Market every week. All of the people pictured in the book are real vendors at her local market. In addition, McClure did extensive research on who makes the food she eats and how it gets to market. So as the boy and his mother shop, they tell the reader how each item is grown or made so that it can grace their table and fill their stomachs. Did you know that there are over 6,000 farmers markets in the United States alone? To Market, To Market will encourage people to buy locally, eat healthy, and discover new foods. It is a unique and fascinating way to introduce youngsters to how food is grown, prepared, and brought to market. Perhaps the “way it used to be” is the wave of the future.
