Little Pea

By Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Jen Corace — the same creators as Little Hoot and Little Oink Little Pea chronicles the typical toddler dinnertime battle, but with a twist. Rather than having to eat his vegetables, Little Pea has to eat his candy. This may sound strange, but it works; James laughs hysterically each time we read this book. Kirkus Reviews: “Little Pea’s generally a happy legume, hanging with friends, rolling down hills, and being catapulted off a spoon by Papa Pea — but meals are always fraught, for Little Pea hates candy, which as you know (you didn’t?) is all that peas eat. ‘If you don’t finish your candy, you can’t have dessert,’ says Mama Pea. Negotiating his quota down to five cellophane-wrapped pieces, Little Pea proceeds to choke them down — ‘Three. Plck. Four. Pleh.’ — then jumps for joy at dessert’s arrival — a heaping bowl of spinach. Expect bursts of hilarity from young listeners.” Giggle factor: high. Adult enjoyment: likely. Illustrations: four jelly jars.
