Little Pea by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

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.

This is a sweet and playful little book children will really be able to relate to, especially those who struggle through eating their vegetables.  It features a simple but quite clever storyline.  Little Pea must eat all his sweets before he is allowed his vegetables for dessert.

Keira really enjoys this book and thinks its so funny that Little Pea has to eat his candy before he gets his veggies, it never fails to make her giggle!
