It's market day! Wake up and feed the red rooster and chickens. Get the vegetables ready, and let's go! This market is no run-of-the-mill everyday market. This is a farmer's market created entirely from folk-art objects and textiles. Collected and photographed by Lois Ehlert, these beautiful "primitive" pieces of art are stunning in color and form. A two-page reference guide at the end of the book describes where each object came from, and what it is made of. From Mexico to Africa to the United States to Indonesia, this stunning collection is worth many hours of perusal. The accompanying text, describing the day's journey to the market, and the activities to partake in once there, takes a distant second to the star of the show--the artwork. Cotton-and-yarn mice dolls from Indonesia ride an African motorcycle made from discarded metal containers, wire, bike chain, rubber, and plastic. A painted wood rooster from Guatemala watches over papier-mâché vegetables from the U.S. and Mexico. Market Day is a truly stunning picture book, sure to impress and enchant readers of all ages.
Caldecott winner Lois Ehlert is no stranger to arts-and-crafts-inspired picture books, as evidenced by her Hands and Snowballs, among many other unique and wonderful titles. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie CoulterBook Description:
