LMNO Peas, by Keith Baker (2010)

Picture Book, 32 pages

With its catchy title and adorable illustrations, LMNO Peas is sure to please young readers learning the alphabet. Little busy peas share their occupations alphabetically in this rhyming narrative of jobs and letters. Illustrations abound as the peas go to work and interact with one another, giving readers plenty to peruse as they read. Baker uses each letter as the foundation for every page and then literally has the peas drive, fly, paint, and sing on them, building a city of busy little peas. With such amazing graphics and nifty rhymes, I would love to read this book to children. My only hesitation with a large group is the visibility of the small sets of peas around the pages. However, with clear text and individual occu-pea-tions all eager readers will have something to look at on each page.
