EXCERPT from simonandschuster.com:
From A to Z—and Acrobat Peas to Zoologist Peas—every letter is exciting in this Classic Board Book edition of LMNO Peas! Get ready to roll through the alphabet with a jaunty cast of extremely cute and busy little peas in this Classic Board Book edition of Keith Baker’s hit concept book. This fresh and fun alphabet book features bright colors, bouncy rhyming text, and silly pea characters who highlight the wide variety of interests, hobbies, and careers that make the world such a colorful place!
Rationale for Inclusion: Baker’s Pea series are some of my favorite books to read for story time. Any children’s collection would be remiss without the addition of these lovable peas. The book takes a page from typical ABC books but adds little active peas as characters who participate in jobs, exercise, activities, and hobbies that relate to the letter on the page. Children love to sit close and point out all the different interesting things the peas are doing on the page. It makes for a very interaction reading experience and provides an explorative space for kids to ask questions about job titles, hobbies and interests.
