Synopsis

At the Supermarket by Anne Rockwell

On a special trip to the supermarket, a young boy helps his mom buy what they need. There are meats, fruits, and vegetables to put in the shopping cart; soap and toilet paper, too. But the most important ingredients are those needed to bake a birthday cake. Children love to help out at the grocery store. In her signature style, Anne Rockwell conveys the adventure of a trip to the supermarket from a young child's point-of-view.

Reviews

Rockwell s cheery paintings and child-focused text make this a delightful selection to share all year round. -School Library Journal

Rockwell's 1979 classic gets a makeover with new illustrations and an updated story. . . . Its quiet clarity is sure to attract newcomers who appreciate the simpler pace of life it reflects. Kirkus Reviews

The brightly colored gouache illustrations on white backgrounds show the child helping to fill the cart and feature such items as produce and a container of ice cream alone on the page, making identification easy. This is a fun, educational read-aloud. School Library Journal

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
