Little Pea was introduced to our daughter at preschool, and she is crazy about it. Amy Krouse Rosenthal has created a trio of stories (Little Pea, Little Hoot, and Little Oink that are all presented using a “backward” premise. Little Pea is a young pea who is frustrated by the fact that he can only eat his beloved vegetables as dessert once he has eaten all of his candy for dinner. The pictures in this book are darling and really enhance the story.
If you like this one, be sure to check out Little Hoot which shares the tale of a little owl who wants to go to bed rather than stay up late, and Little Oink who loves to be neat and tidy rather than contribute to the creation of a pigsty. All three are well worth reading and enjoying!
