29 December 2014 – To market! To market!

I have been given some great childrens books – the first is ‘To market! To market! by Anushka Ravishankar and Emanuele Scanziani – this is a bouncy modern-day nursery rhyme where a little Indian girl experiences the magic of the market. The creative text and images are literally spell-binding! The second is ‘Off to Market’ by Elizabeth Dale and Erika Pal – this one is on the (very crowded!) market bus in Uganda – another really inspiring tale which captures all the fun and excitement of the market where people pull together to help each other out.

Receiving these books has got me thinking about children’s interactions with markets (and the associated social and cultural interactions) and how they come to understand and value food – I feel a book collection coming on!
