~~We added this book to our favorites page~~
It is by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Illustrated by Jen Corace. Published by Chronicle Books.
It is about a Pea (as in the vegetable) family — the Papa Pea, Mama Pea and Little Pea.
The Little Pea liked many things except for CANDY. And that is what Little Peas had to eat …candy. Candy on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and so on.
We enjoyed the simple illustrations, and especially the various candies Little Pea had to eat before he could have his dessert — which was his favorite, SPINACH.
The pages that shows Little Pea reluctantly eating his candy, one by one, and the accompanying word sounds, Yuck… Blech… Plck, Pleh… made the boys laugh. They liked repeating the funny sounds Little Pea made.
The boys do love eating spinach too, so that was a plus…and a little book about a little pea that makes all of us laugh, is a plus too!
