I love Farmer's Markets....especially since I work at one selling my sister-in-law's Veggie Burgers. One of the things I learned is that everyone loves "pickles".....I never knew that. Of course the pickle stands sell more than pickles like olives and peppers etc. What I love the most to watch is how all the kids love to go and get a pickle on a stick.....they are so cute walking around the market eating their pickles. Some kids are so funny because they will have a pickle on a stick in one hand and an Italian ice in the other....I can't imagine what that combination tastes like. This is why I immediately fell in love with today's recommendation.
Pickles, Please! A Dilly of a Book by Andy Myer is a great book about a little boy who loves pickles. He can't get enough of them. He loves them so much he steals away on a pickle truck to go to the pickle factory. I love the way it the book reads and the fun cartoony illustrations. This is one of those books I would have loved to read at story time.....oh the activities we could have done....and the pickles I would have brought in to eat! This is perfect for the pickle lover in your life!
