Little Pea by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Daughter’s age when read: 3 years old

I actually bought this book over a year ago because a friend said her daughter loved it but it was too old to interest my daughter then.  She pulled it out again recently and she really enjoys it now.  The story is about Little Pea, what he likes to do and how he is force to eat his dinner of candy which he hates in order to get his dessert of spinach.  My daughter found it funny that Little Pea doesn’t like candy and that spinach is his favorite food.

This is definitely a fun book for kids at least 3 years old and the illustrations are great.  I also like the fact that it emphasizes that veggies are yummy and hopefully would encourage kids to eat them.

    My son absolutely adores this series of books! In fact we read them tonight before bed. He also thinks the part about Pea liking veggies instead of candy is pretty funny. Love the illustrations as well! Great review and pick!
