About the Book
Check out Roxie Munro’s first book on the Holiday House list!
Eight trucks hit the highway in a colorful and mesmerizing maze book that helps kids understand where food comes from and how it gets to their tables.
In eleven intricately drawn mazes, eight vehicles, each carrying a different product, are on their way to the city. Fish, apples, dairy products, corn, vegetables, flowers, eggs, and baked goods all travel through colorful and minutely detailed landscape mazes to reach the city farmer’s market.
Information on all of the products and their journeys is included, along with answers to all of the mazes. For additional fun, kids are challenged to look for objects hidden on each spread.
★★★THE REVIEWS ARE IN!★★★
★ “A great way to introduce kids to their foods’ origins and to prepare them for a greenmarket visit of their own.”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“This book is AMAZING!!!!!! I loved how it made learning about where food comes from and how it GETS to the farmer’s market, NOT the supermarket! Plus, I loved how the mazes were incorporated into the learning and discovery process of food production on farms. A book like this was long overdue, yet it is so timely. I’m so glad it is available now!”
