Alice insists on reading this each night at least 3 times.
It’s a very sweet counting story of a baby with his mama at a Nigerian market. Baby is wrapped on his mama’s back and is gifted with so many treats while she shops.
We love it for a look at what grocery shopping looks like in another country. Although now Alice expects me to carry my Loblaws bags on my head.

Bear is tired of being a bear. He would like to try being a duck.
But he finds it hard to build a nest, swim without splashing, and flying is impossible. Duck points out all the things about being a bear that is great – like climbing a tree. And the thing that Bear is best at is being a friend.
Very cute and I LOVE the illustrations.

I think I talk about Tammi Sauer/Zoe Waring books fairly frequently (at least on my Instagram page) and it’s because I love the fun simplicity of their books that are always hilarious. We’ve meet this duck before when we went for a picnic and caused a traffic jam.
Now he is fishing with friends who can’t seem to get a fish. Until they get a really really really big fish and decide pizza is a better idea.
Hope you enjoy these picks! And as always,
