A picture book that celebrates local shops and building communities.

Anna Maria takes great pleasure and pride in her grandparents’ corner grocery store. Every Saturday she spends the day helping to arrange fruits and vegetables, greet the customers, and keep things neat and tidy. Through her day we meet the neighbors and learn what an important part the corner grocery store plays in the community.

Nonno Domenico, Nonna Rosa, and Anna Maria supply more than goods as the steady stream of customers arrives. Lunches are made, news is shared, bargains are purchased, recipes are traded, and cheerful ciaos are called. By the end of a long day, Anna Maria has a true sense of just how wonderful the sights and smells within the store are and how much they mean to everyone.

Charmingly illustrated in great detail, Our Corner Grocery Store pays tribute to the small independent grocers who supply color and atmosphere to city streets. Young readers will particularly enjoy finding and naming the wide array of produce, breads, candies, and dry goods that abound in this friendly establishment.

About the Author:

Joanne Schwartz was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Art History from York University and she has a Master’s degree in Library Sciences from the University of Western Ontario. Joanne is a children’s librarian with the Toronto Public Library, and she is a reviewer for the Canadian Children’s Book News. She enjoys art history, dancing, mountain walking, and reading picture books. Joanne has two daughters and lives in Toronto, Ontario.

Laura Beingessner has loved to draw and paint ever since she was a little girl. She is the illustrator of three books for children, including the award-winning If the Shoe Fits, a New York Public Library’s 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing pick. She lives in Toronto with her husband and son.

From School Library Journal:

Starred Review. Kindergarten-Grade 3—This sweet story takes readers through young Anna Maria's Saturday as she helps her grandparents in their neighborhood store. The day is special for its simplicity; the book is special for its rich evocation of the delights of a little Italian market and the loving relationships between a girl and her grandparents. Beingessner's folksy illustrations and Schwartz's easy text fit well together and are filled with details. The fresh fruits and vegetables are lined up on wooden racks in front of the store, Nonno hand prints small signs to display among the produce, and fresh bread is delivered from a bakery in blue-and-white striped bags that Anna Maria sorts on the shelves. Nonna prepares a dinner of stuffed mushrooms in her kitchen behind the shop, and the girl and her friend draw on the sidewalks with chalk and share frozen treats from the store after dinner. The compelling visual and verbal descriptions make readers feel a part of the activities, as though they are living out one of those idyllic Saturdays. Reading this book is as appealing as spending a day in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood—both provide a gentle and welcome escape. Share this story during storytime and encourage children to talk about other places or memories that make them feel happy.—Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME
