Little Green Peas: A Big Book of Colors by Keith Baker
Keith Baker’s third concept book is sure to be a hit with your preschooler. Baker’s previous books, LMNO Peas and 1-2-3 Peas, illustrate numbers and letters with the help of a fun-loving group of little peas. This installment finds the peas exploring colors in large, two-page illustrations, perfect for sharing with a group. Encourage them to repeat the phrase “little green peas” as it occurs after each new color. In one-on-one reading, have your child point to and name the different activities the peas are doing. Can you find the ladybug and paper airplane hidden in each scene? Ask which color is your child’s favorite. Talking together about the pictures and asking questions are great ways to help get your child ready to read!
