nikki mcclure : to market, to market

This is my favorite new children's book for the season. Nikki McClure is famous for her paper cuts, which she's created for prints, calendars and books. There's often a simple and important message behind her artwork.

The book To Market, To Market takes the reader through a trip to the farmer's market. You see the different goods for sale -- honey, baked goods, eggs, veggies, etc. -- and learn not only about these items but about the story of how they get to the market, whether grown or made, showing pictures of farmers, weavers, beekeepers and the behind-the-scenes look at all the items for sale.

It's a work of art as always. Available online from Buy Olympia for $17. I found my copy at Brooklyn's Powerhouse Arena in DUMBO.
