Get ready to roll through the alphabet with a jaunty cast of busy little peas. Featuring a range of zippy characters from Acrobat Peas to Zoologist Peas, this delightful picture book highlights a variety of interests, hobbies, and careers—each one themed to a letter of the alphabet—and gives a wonderful sense of the colorful world we live in. Children will have so much fun poring over the detailed scenes that they won’t even realize they’re learning the alphabet along the way!
This is a really cute alphabet book that takes Baker’s little pea friends and casts them in a host of roles from A to Z. The text clips right along with great cadence AS LONG AS YOU REALIZE that you need to read the little speech bubbles (that often look like asides) aloud as well… otherwise the text just feels awkward and won’t always rhyme.
This book is fun and creative. It has lots of different things kids could be and is illustrated colorfully.
