A simple trip to the grocery store becomes a humorously complicated jaunt when a boy mixes up his shopping list - again and again and again!
Repeated phrases and a predictable pattern make this ideal for sharing with new readers in a group setting. Full color.

As he sets out for the store, a little boy's mother reminds him, "Six farm eggs, a cake for tea, a pound of pears, and don't forget the bacon." He has forgotten everything but the bacon, though, when he returns.

Catalogue description:

A little boy goes grocery shopping for his mother and tries hard to remember her instructions.

Amazon Customer, seinecafe@aol.com from New York, comments (1997):
Rating = 10 out of 10
A classic in the making - one I will treasure always
Captivating, endlessly twirling thoughts, pictures and words into a work of literature, NOT a picture book. It changed me internally - and I will never forget the startling ending. A perfect example of "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose", Don't Forget the Bacon is something that children and adults should read - if not treasure.
