Summary
A toddler creates chaos while shopping with his mother at the supermarket
Review
Riding high in a shopping cart, a toddler tears up the grocery store in this satisfying romp. Doyle's short, rhyming sentences—one, two, and three words each—reflect the toddler's developing language skills. In one full-bleed spread, mother and child shop for "Beets. / Meats. / Ham. / Peanut butter. / Jam." Children can easily match words with pictures. Westcott's watercolor-and-ink illustrations on "super sturdy" paper show the items on the shelf and in the cart. They also tell the back story—while mom selects a ham, the boy flings beets to the floor. In the next spread, he eats peanut butter and jelly from the jars. Behind him, customers slip and slide on errant produce. Throughout, the boy and his mother blaze a messy trail, upsetting other customers in their wake. It's a familiar scenario, with a predicable conclusion. Little ones will love this. (Picture book. 1-3) (Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2004)
