Market Maze by Roxie Munro- ADVISABLE

Munro, Roxie. Market Maze, PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2015. $16.95. Follow various produce, pastry, dairy, seafood, and flower trucks through different mazes. Each maze starts with where each type of item comes from and travels through the city or countryside to it’s final destination. The reader must help the trucks through the different mazes and find other objects in each scene. All the trucks eventually end up at a Greenmarket (similar to a Farmer’s Market) where a class of students is attending a field trip. This is a very visually appealing book (even my 1 ½ year old sat in my lap and studied each page). The illustrations are detailed and colorful. Each shipped item is described on its page and there is an answer key at the back of the book. A fun book to look at over and over again, as well as for teaching the concept of where our food comes from. Content: G. EL (K-3), EL-ADVISABLE. Reviewed by: Shay, School Librarian
