Written and Illustrated by William Bee
Stanley, the loveable hamster, is back with his own store. He even drives a delivery truck. Large, bold colored pictures allow children to pick out the various shapes of cheeses. Fruits and vegetables are easy to recognize and name.
Funny events take place as displays get tipped over and hot bread is removed from the oven.
Parents, teachers and librarians will enjoy introducing this book to young readers in a read aloud setting. Teachers can use the book for teaching vocabulary, sequencing of events as well as matching text to the illustrations. Parents can use the illustrations to discuss healthy choices in foods as one shopper has all cookies and candies while another has fruits and vegetables.
The hardcover book is padded which makes it safer and more enticing for the youngest readers.
