Children's book review: A very "peasing" book

little pea book coverThis review will be short and sweet, just like the wonderful book Little Pea by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. The premise of Little Pea flips the old “children won’t eat their peas” parental complaint on its head. Here you have a family of peas whose littlest pea is bemoaning the fact that he’s required to eat five pieces of candy before he can eat his dessert: spinach.

Little pea stalls as long as he can:
"Five pieces?" he whined.
"Five pieces," they chimed.
He proceeds to express his distaste with “yuck,” “blech” and even the old Bronx cheer. But he’s a trooper and manages to force down the candy and everyone is relieved to know that they lived “hap-pea-ly ever after."

A charming book that turns a childhood enemy into an ally in the food wars.
