Product Description

Review

* "This high-energy romp invites repeat visits by young browsers--there's plenty to pore over and giggle about. Delicious!"--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Hundreds of animated green peas tumble through the alphabet in this refreshingly original book. The illustrations are full of vitality and good humor, and the rhyming text never misses a beat." PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, March 22, 2010 *Starred Review

* “Humble green peas provide inspiration in this hilarious, occupation-based romp through the alphabet…. The digitally rendered illustrations glow in vibrant, textured colors that boldly leap off the page against a background of ample white space. The sheer fun of the rhythmic text and the large alphabet letters work well for a read-aloud audience, but the busy, engaging details of the peas in their various worker modes are better suited for one-on-one exploration that young children will want to pore over again and again.”—School Library Journal, starred review

The pictures are cute and the rhymes easy to follow. The colours of the letters are varied
and the little peas are well dressed.

This is a favorite of my oldest son. We read it all the time, he got it when he was four or 5 and is now almost 7. We have fun seeing who can find the ladybug on each page the fastest.

Richie's Picks: LMNO PEAS Aug. 13 2010
By Richie Partington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"We're acrobats, artists, and astronauts in space.
"We're builders, bathers, and bikers in a race.
"We're climbers, campers, and he's a circus clown.
"We're dancers -- 'Can you dig it?' and drivers round town."

In preparation for a class I will be teaching, I recently wandered (from A to Z) through the shelves of picture books in the children's collection of a large public library. It is a collection in which spine identification labels have been affixed to each of the books that is an ABC book -- those books designed as concept books meant to assist in teaching children identification of the letters of the alphabet and, typically, the related sounds of those letters. It was ABC books that I was seeking out that day.

While quite an illuminating process, I don't recommend your reading dozens of ABC books one after another if you are looking for a good time.

"We're eaters, electricians, and explorers searching land.
"We're farmers, flaggers, and best friends in a band."

I've always found that there are two kinds of ABC books: The ones you read once and have no desire to ever read again -- at least not for fun -- and the ones that are way fun. Unfortunately, I've always found far more of the former than the latter.

When I compare books in these two categories, I find that the ones that I have a desire to read again and again are those that contain action and rhythm and go far beyond the confines of the "concept" book. For me, CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM sets the standard for ABC books that you can read one hundred times without wanting to either hurl or fall asleep. Another one firmly in this category -- which, like CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM, I have probably read aloud one hundred times -- is OLD BLACK FLY.

LMNO PEAS is the latest ABC book I've found that I can easily imagine making this one hundred reads aloud cut.

"We're painters, poets, and plumbers fixing leaks.
"We're pilots, parachutists, we're peas and...
we're unique!"

These are peas with personality, and peas who are on the move. There are large upper-case block letters and the action takes place on and around these letters. There are bushels of humorous details to discover. For example, on the E and F two-page spread, a pair of hard-hatted electrician peas are inserting a large plug into an outlet installed on the bottom of the upper leg of the letter E. If you follow the wire -- which winds around the letter E before heading off to the next page -- you will discover that it is providing the power for the "best friends in a band" (whose band name is Pod). These illustrations are an integral part of a rhythmic read, as opposed to being pictures of objects on a list of alphabetically-ordered words. In contrast to so many concept books that are illustrated books rather than picture books, LMNO PEAS is an exceptionally well-illustrated picture book.

(And a very peasing one it is.)

I Love This Book~Pass the Peas Please April 29 2010
By kindred spirit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This is too cute for words. You go through the whole alphabet with pea's dressed up illustrating different professions and doing different jobs. It is just to cute for words. When you take time and study them close you will see funny things like a singer that looks like ELVIS LOL how funny. It has a rhythm pace to the reading but not 100%. As an adult I enjoyed it and cannot wait to share it with the children in my life.

The book is very high quality and had a dust jacket that has the same picture as the book. The pages are very thick so that they will withstand much use by the 3-7yr old age group.

Most ABC books we think of A is for apple B is for Ball. These are much more exciting. here are a few. The pea's are telling you about themselves they say things like we're eaters, electricians and explorers searching land. We're hikers, inventors and investigators. We're pilots, parachutists, were peas and..we're quilters. Then in the end they ask WHO ARE YOU?

The details are so great a child could spend hours looking at all the little peas and what they are doing. This is a very fresh new way to learn the ABC's and the name is so great. LNMO~Peas!

Highly recommend.

Wonderfully cute book Aug. 26 2010
By Nishant Agarwal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I am really very impressed with the book. This is not your average ABC book. The quality and jacket are top notch. The illustrations seem to be hand painted. The letters are just the right size. The colors are vibrant and pop out. The theme of the book is peas. It is sort of a whimsical idea to have peas as characters doing various actions, but does look cute.

My 2 year old daughter likes the book. Although she doesn't understand alphabets yet, she likes seeing the letters and the illustrations in the book.

This ABC book may interest adults too, of course not from the point of view of learning alphabets, but if you are like me and like to collect cute little things!

Fabulous Alphabet book that you will read again and again Aug. 19 2010
By Holly Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Every since my son received this book a few weeks ago he has poured over it morning and night, discovering something new each time, telling me what those peas are up too, asking to have it in the middle of the night... you get the picture. With a whimsical air, Baker illustrates each letter with cute little peas acting out different activities beginning with that sound. Biking, Voting, Volunteering, Parachuting, Bathing, Climbing... on and on. My son particularly LOVES the tiny lady bug that is on the end papers and hidden on each spread... look hard!

These peas please Sept. 24 2010
By Madigan McGillicuddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I loved this fresh take on alphabet books. With a gently bouncy rhyme, we see little green peas, paired with letters of the alphabet, busily doing everything under the sun. Baker imbues these little green circles with so much personality and optimism, it makes for an amazing read. Their small size in comparison to the large, pastel letters and the creative way that they use the shape of each letter (For example, "underwater divers" splash in the center of the "U" shape and "campers" pitch their tent in the bottom curve of the letter "C") is certain to boost letter knowledge in young readers. Effective use of white space keeps the busyness of each page from getting too overwhelming.

For me, the true test of any alphabet book is the treatment of the often-difficult letter X. Here, "x-ray doctors" examine a gigantic green "X" with bones faintly apparent. There is so much to hunt and find on each page. The illustration of a group of yogis depicts some blissfully stretching peas, with one pea towards the back, struggling to get into the pose. There's a terrific flow from page to page as well, when you see one of the "bikers" from the B page, biking past "drivers" on the D page, followed by the same biker zipping through the finish line run by "flaggers" on the page for F. Later, "readers" from page R relax with their books by the seashore for page S.

My favorite little Easter egg in this book is the ladybug hidden on every spread. She pops up in a ball of yarn, behind a leaf, inside a sandcastle, on the judge's scale. Really fun! The rhyme is inventive and invites to be read aloud, "We're painters, poets, and plumbers fixing leaks/We're pilots, parachutists, we're peas and... we're unique!" This book would work well at storytime, but might be even more appreciated reading one-on-one, when youngsters would have the chance to pore over the artwork for themselves.
