My girls love this one and we keep going back to it time and time again.

This book is SO ridiculous (in a good way). Color paintings superimposed over black and white photographs of a grocery store show the escalating chaos at a woman's house as she makes repeated trips to the store for various animals. I swear, I've had days that felt just like hers. When she finally ends up with her glasses knocked off and a duck on her head, the animals take her to the store to get the stuff for vegetable soup. Awwww! One of our favorite picture books about food and cooking (and chaos).

This ain't your grandma's "To Market, To Market"--a silly, fun twist on the well-known nursery rhyme (especially fun for vegetarian families).
