Why this book?
Even though this one is blatantly trying to get kids to eat vegetables instead of sweets through reverse psychology, the story is cute and funny (even my husband went aww while reading it over my shoulder). My sister used to stash her peas under her cup and pretend she ate them so this was a silly reminder of our childhood. And the illustrations are so darn adorable!

What is this book about?
Ten years ago, Amy Krouse Rosenthal burst into children's books with Little Pea, a book destined to become a classic. Her witty text about a little pea who won't eat his sweets combined with the whimsical yet warm hearted art by Jen Corace create a go-to baby gift, a hilarious read-aloud and the perfect intervention for picky eaters.
