In her first picture book, poet Schaub celebrates farmers markets in 18 buoyant, mostly rhymed poems; readers can follow two children and their respective dogs through one such market in Huntingtons (Grandma Drove the Lobsterboat) airy watercolors. The poems sing the praises of the edibles on sale at the market, as well its sights and entertainment. Get your roasted sweet corn here!/ Cant be beat this time of year! reads Sallys Sweet Corn, while Delightful Bites highlights the markets delicious smells: Alluring aromas float over tent-topsa whiff of vanilla, a whisper of spice. Occasional moments of excitement (one of the dogs makes a beeline for a table of free fruit samples) capture the bustling energy of an outdoor market. Ages 48.
