By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market
Introduce your child to Seattle’s beloved Pike Place Market with “A Day at the Market,” an artistic board book bursting with local color.
Author and artist Sara Anderson lives in the Market and brings its daily rhythms to life with a style reminiscent of paper cutouts. The sturdy cardboard pages are die-cut to frame the images and provide a sensory experience for little hands.
Rhythmic rhymes about coffee and geoducks have authentic local flavor and, though aimed at ages 3–8, are sophisticated enough for parents to enjoy:
Hama Hama / I’m an oyster / Lemme out / I’m feeling cloistered
The book captures a piece of what makes Seattle unique and makes a lovely souvenir for visitors.
