Synopsis: In a cumulative tale set to the calypso rhythms of the West Indies, a large family loads their old jitney bus, Baby-O, and sets off for town on market day.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-- Lively figures sparkle and sing across the pages with the pulsing beat of Carlstrom's rhymed text in this cumulative story of a West Indian family gathering its produce for market. With consistent rhythm and a repetitive refrain, the chant is of ``Baby-O,'' ``Mama-O,'' ``Granny-O, ``Brother-O,'' and all the rest as they hoe the garden, gather the fruits and vegetables, weave the baskets, and load them all on the jitney for the trip to town. The boldly colored, bouncy bus, with ``Baby-O'' emblazoned on its side, makes its way to all of the family members so they can add their wares (and sounds) until it fairly overflows with happy noises and hues. When the folks get to the market town, they set up their stall. All is artfully arranged, and below this tempting array are the word-sounds, blended neatly in a joyous collaboration with the scene. Sing it, chant it, clap it, or stamp it. Just don't miss it. --Jane Marino, White Plains Public Library, NY
