On Market Street

By Arnold Lobel

Illustrated by Anita Lobel

A young girl goes to the market to buy things– something for every letter of the alphabet. ┬áHer crazy collection at the end of the day is completely worth it, because all of the items she buys are gifts for her best friend: her cat.

Great for pre-k students learning the alphabet and word associations.
