I think this is a visually interesting book about markets, and quite like it. My nearly 3-year-old daughter thinks it's too wordy and the pictures are too literal, and she's not interested. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688121616, Hardcover)

Lewin takes readers on a whirlwind trip around the globe to marvel at the range of goods available for sale in the world's markets. Woolen sweaters and ponchos in Ecuador; wood carvings, flutes, garlic and ginger in Nepal; Irish horses; Ugandan cows, bananas, and limes; fish in New York City; and dates, pottery, and donkeys in Morocco are just a few of the products depicted in the luminous watercolor paintings.

Describes, in simple text and illustrations, the special characteristics of different types of markets throughout the world, from the Fulton Fish Market in New York to Durbar Square, Patan, where temples rise like pagodas behind the flute sellers.
