Bebé Goes Shopping

by Susan Middleton Elya
Illustrated by Steven Salerno

Published by Harcourt, 2006
32 pages
ISBN: 0-15-205426-X

Ages 2-5

Wide-awake colors, bold lines, and lots of movement set the stage for Bebé’s visit to the grocery store. Like any self-respecting toddler, Bebé views the outing as a chance to experience the market’s wares with all his senses, especially taste, touch, and sound! Mamá’s hard-pressed to keep up with her little one’s grocery cart activities, until she finds the perfect distraction: a box of animal crackers for his mid-day snack. Rhyming words and a liberal dose of Spanish (with glossary) make this over-sized picture book an ideal read-aloud. Young listeners will be captivated by Bebé’s romp right up through his exit from the store: “Smiles from Mamá. “Shopping’s done! ¡Terminé!” And who’s been her wonderful helper? Bebé!”  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
