On a special trip to the supermarket, a young boy helps his mom buy what they need. There are meats, fruits, and vegetables to put in the shopping cart; soap and toilet paper, too. But the most important ingredients are those needed to bake a birthday cake. Children love to help out at the grocery store. In her signature style, Anne Rockwell conveys the thrill of a trip to the supermarket from a young child's point-of-view.Thirty years ago, Anne Rockwell collaborated with her husband Harlow on this charming book. This beloved favorite has been newly updated for a new generation of young readers.
