The Book Snob Mom

Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

This book is pretty well known at this point, and for good reason. The illustrations are charming and the story about Little Pea who REALLY doesn't want to eat his candy for dinner is remarkably clever. It's on the longer side in terms of amount of text for a board book but is absolutely worth it, and until your baby/younger toddler has a long enough attention span go for the paraphrasing the story as you go along because this is definitely one worth owning. By turning the classic childhood distaste for vegetables on it's head this book hits the perfect note of silly for a message that might actually sink in.
