It is amazing to me how many picture books have been written about peas. Just the other day I was browsing our new books and came across a couple about this popular veggie. This got me thinking about the other books dedicated to the sweet pea. There are quite a few on our shelves, including the delightful “LMNO Peas” by Keith Baker.This cute book goes through the alphabet, touching upon different occupations or hobbies that pea-ple (did you catch that?) may have, like artist, nurse and the like.
After letters, Baker tackles numbers in his book, “1-2-3 Peas.” In this tasty tale busy peas count from one to 100. It’s a fun (and delicious) way to enjoy numbers. Some other books about peas:
- “Little Pea” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
- “I Don’t Want to be a Pea” by Ann Bonwill
- “The Little Pea” by Éric Battut
And of course, there are many books about a princess and a pea, if you prefer your peas seasoned with fairy tales!
