Books worth reading. 

Time and again.

Little Pea, Little Hoot, Little Oink

Little Pea, Little Hoot, Little Oink

If you have any babies, toddlers or preschoolers on your birthday or holiday list, these board books are the perfect gift, guaranteed to be a hit! Once again, author Amy Krouse Rosenthal does not disappoint.  Each book features an adorable little character with a familiar struggle- eating healthy, staying clean and getting to bed at the right time.  In a twist that kids find hilarious, the struggles of these lovable little characters are exactly the opposite of what you might expect!

Little Pea

Little pea is adorable.

His life is familiar in many ways; 

he plays at the park with friends and loves to play with his Dad.

There is one big difference between Little Pea and the child that hears his story.   

Little Pea has to eat candy in order to earn dessert, and he hates it! 

Kids will giggle right through every painstakingly consumed bite of candy and shake their heads when they see what Little Pea is so excited to have for dessert: spinach!!

Little Oink

Little Oink is a focused, sincere little pig. 

He likes lots of things, including school. 

Most of all, he likes to

clean

!  

This is one neat little pig and it is so hard for him 

to make the messes his parents expect, and insist, that he make!  

By the end, he resolves, exasperated:

 "When I grow up, I'm going to let my kids clean up their rooms as much as they want!"

So funny.

Little Hoot

Talk about the perfect book for bedtime. 

I love Little Hoot. He is so cute plus he's happy and creative.

If only his parents didn't make him stay up so late! 

He just wants to go to bed already and he tires of finding a way to pass the time. 

He's just not a night owl and when

he

grows up, 

he's going to let his kids go to bed as early as they want!! 

I love that these stories come in board book format. They are sturdy enough for babies to flip through and play with, a great length for toddlers practicing sitting and listening and so engaging that they easily hold the interest of  3, 4 and 5 year olds. Very funny material for a wide age range. 

Ask for these at your local library or order online:
