What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Join Baby and his doting mama at a bustling southwest Nigerian marketplace for a bright, bouncy read-aloud offering a gentle introduction to numbers. Market is very crowded. Mama is very busy. Baby is very curious. When Baby and Mama go to the 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 wend their way through the stalls, cheeky Baby collects five oranges, four biscuits, three ears of sweet corn, 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! Rhythmic language, visual humor, and a bounty of delectable food make this a tale that is sure to whet little appetites for story time.

Quotes from This Book

  • “Mama puts her basket down. ‘What is this?’ cries Mama. ‘Five bananas! Four oranges! Three chin-chin! Two roasted corn! One piece of coconut! I did not buy these!’
    ‘No!’ cries the banana seller, and the orange seller, and the chin-chin seller, and the coconut seller, all laughing. ‘We gave those things to Baby!’”
