This book is about a little girl who goes to town with her father for Market Day. There are several things that you can experience on Market Day. Farmers show their livestock for others to buy, there are food and candy stands, fortune tellers, sword swallowers and other acts. While her dad is buying some pigs for the family farm, the girl uses her penny to boost her friends self-confidence at the fortune teller station.

Market Day is a fun book about going to the market in Ireland. It is a good book to give students a sense of how other countries shop other than theirs. The pictures are painted and full of life. In many cases you are able to look at the pictures and predict what will happen. ( )

Market Day is a cute book about a little girl who goes to the Market on the first thursday of every month. Her parents give her one penny to spend. Throught the book she comes across many things she can buy with her money until she finally makes her choice.

Tess and Wee boy are friends who explore a market once a month in the streets of Ireland. They each have a penny to spend each time they go. Because they do not have a lot of money they take turns on who is to buy the candy for the both of them. This is a great book about friendships and gives great illustrations on how a market in Ireland may look and feel.

This is a level 3 book but would interest younger readers. This book would make a great tool to teach students about different cultures. The book talks about the many different types of people you would find at a market in Ireland. ( )
