A Day at the Market
A Day at the Market This book is all about Pike Place Market, in Seattle. I purchased this book because it's local and shows a farmer's market. Some of the language/vocab is tough for kindergarten, but lots of kids had been to the Market and recognized certain things.

First Facts: Farm Perfect non-fiction book on farms, for kindergarten. We used the table of contents to help us find information about harvest, wheat, and crops. These were great vocabulary words for the kids too. The text is great and the captions are a nice addition. Great book!
the children are holding pumpkins in their hands
Pick a Perfect Pumpkin; Learning about Pumpkin Harvests I love that this book focuses on "harvest" and is set at a pumpkin farm, since we just went to the pumpkin farm. This was a great book! Love the use of speech bubbles. I need to remember that we should make pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, or pumpkin soup when we read this book. It talks about how pumpkins are used in foods we eat.

Berry Book
The Berry Book: Gail Gibbons I love all of Gail Gibbons' books! The layout on the first page is great for making our own market collages. I don't read every word to my kindergarten class, beacause it's a little more detailed than we need. We focus on how berries grow, how they are sold, products they are used in, town berry festivals, and things we make with berries. Pie, jam, and ice cream are all featured.
