This children's book is ideal for introducing the different cultures around the world by traveling together with Granny and her flying carpet. This book would be a great way to lead into activities and lessons about different countries and cultures. An entertaining story, while revealing a captivating illustration on each page of the very finest quality. It can be used across the curricular; children can create their own paper flying carpet, masks, and lanterns. Although these students may not be able to travel the world at this moment, it shows them about different cultures.This book teaches us a lot about cultural objects from around the world, it also uses a rhythm of counting to show the journey throughout the book. A beautifully illustrated book, full of detail and colour… Not only is this a counting and rhyming book, it also provides some clear explanations as to unfamiliar terms covered within the text. This book is great for learning about other countries and cultures and can be a brilliant starting point for a cross-curricular project.

While this book is to help with counting each page is represented by a certain place around the world.As it says in the title it is written in rhyme and every place she visits she picks up a certain amount of objects (one more than the previous place) therefore is a counting book also. Reading this book, I actually learned about different cultures and things that went along with them. The obvious one being Geography-using a world map and pinning all the places that Granny has visited;children can learn about the different cultures around the world. The book is full of beautiful, big and bright pictures, drawing the reader’s eye to examine them in more detail.

This stylishly illustrated counting book from a Best New Illustrator, opens with a vibrant cockerel crowing to welcome the day and ends with a solitary barn owl flying off the page and slipping into the night.The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. This book covers the numbers 1 - 10 and also geography as Granny rides a magic carpet (from Istanbul) to different markets around the world.

The book is cleverly done as a counting rhyme, tracking granny’s progress around the world and increasing the number of objects bought as she travels. All of these objects are things that are well known for the area such as various tapestries from Istanbul, Nesting Dolls, Llamas, drums etc.Finally, there is also a map at the front and back of the book that shows the path of Granny's travels. This rhyming story of My Granny Went To Market will take young readers on an adventure to different countries while teaching them essential counting skills along the way! Definitely will use in my teaching as there are multiple opportunities for studying cultures and their history.
