On My Way to Buy Eggs by Chih-Yuan Chen
We've read this book a few times over the years when we've been reading around the world in picture books. This one is based on the traditional little neighborhood stores that used to abound everywhere but, according to the author and illustrator, are still common in Taiwan. In this sweet story, a young girl invents and imagines and delights herself all the way to the store and home again after her father's simple request for a few eggs.
It's a pleasure to read over and over again.
