Little Pea

I'm so happy my two big kids still like to jump in bed and listen to me read picture books.  The other night both Madeleine and Henry grabbed their favorites and then squabbled over who got to be next to mom (though it does make me feel very loved, you wouldn't believe the wrestling fights three kids can have over snuggle positions!)

Since Henry's birthday is on the horizon, we read his book first.  This book cracks us up because Henry is our picky eater and getting vegetables in him is like a military mission.  Also, Little Pea is just so darn cute!

The drawings are adorable and the story is funny. To grow big and strong, peas have to eat candy but Little Pea hates candy. His parents tell him that if he wants to have his yummy desert he has to eat 5 pieces of candy (which he does, though not happily). Can you guess what his dessert is?
