A delightful and simple counting down story (from 5 to 1) with gorgeous colourful illustrations. The setting is a bustling
West African market, Mama carries Baby on her back and balances a basket for shopping on her head as she busily goes about her errands. Unbeknownst to her and simultaneously, Baby is also engaging with various stall holders who in turn give Baby some of their wares, of which Baby eats one and puts the remainder in the basket. The humour and warmth in the interactions between Baby and the people in the market is sure to be attractive to young children. On most pages, a few words or a short phrase are in larger bold type which works to encourage emergent readers.
