Simone Goes to the Market

“I am certain that Gandhi was right–that if we are to change the world, we must start with the children. I have witnessed myself the trickle up effect, when our students motivate their families to be respectful of wildlife, learn about our earth, and work to conserve energy. This book is another powerful tool, to help children and the rest of our community to pay close attention to our food and its sources. Its message is so timeless and timely–we are all connected by the food we share.” ~ Kathie Wilson, owner/teacher Childlife Montessori School

Simone Goes to the Market, follows Simone as she goes from farmer to farmer buying colorful, fresh produce. All of the photographs were taken by the author at the local Bellingham Farmer’s Market. This book is great for infants focusing on faces, toddlers learning colors, and kindergartners learning to read. Children (and adults) love the close-up faces of real people they can actually meet who grow food they can actually eat!
