My Granny Went to Market

Have the children crouch down and together slowly count to ten. And, that's not all, because granny buys a certain number of each item she finds in each place, making this a wonderful counting book as well. I remember as a child that the highlight of someone going on a journey was what they might bring you back - the place itself wasn't really within comprehension, but the souvenir very much was.

I love their philosophy. In fact, she was so excited on the page where the Granny went to Thailand, she ripped it! You may want to trim the tassels down when the children are through making their carpet.

Put on a variety of music from different countries and let the children explore moving and dancing to each.

So much so it has been to bed with them, to their grans and even on the bus. Show the children the flat map and about the proximity where your school is located. The ethos and core values behind Barefoot Books are fantastic. Have children draw a specific number of items that they purchased at the market Roger bought 1 box of cereal, Alison bought 2 hair bows, Ryan bought 3 match box cars, etc.

Help them to practice counting objects in your home and out and about the neighborhood. The book also has some interesting facts about the objects that Granny picks up.

All in all I highly recommend this book. Do it again but switch roles. This book is a little more childish looking but contains numbers Find books like My Granny Went to Market: A Round-The-World Counting Rhyme from the world’s largest community of readers.
