“Beautifully colourful and vibrant.”
*The Green Parent*

“[…] full of wonder and magic.”
*Rebel Tribe Blog*

Atinuke’s story about a baby exploring the sights and sounds of a bustling African market is perfect for early years readers, with lots of fun counting and food naming elements to focus on. That it is set in a busy mega African city is a great way of sharing with young children amazing corners of the world that may not resemble their own.
*The Good Wide Web*

Author Atinuke, who was born and grew up in Nigeria, draws on her African cultural experiences to create this timeless tale that was a huge hit with both our big and little testers.
A charming introduction to simple counting, Baby Goes To Market is a real treat, with the colourful illustrations evoking the mouth-watering food, hustle and bustle and bright African-print fabrics of the market – there’s plenty for little ones to engage with visually here – and the rhythmic language and humour toddlers and pre-schoolers love.
