Publisher's Description

Keith Baker’s peas are back in this “pea-quel” to the New York Times bestselling LMNO Peas!

The peas have rolled through the uppercase letters, numbers, colors, and the months of the year. Now they’re back with all of their signature jaunty and joyful perfect-for-preschoolers energy in this sequel to LMNO Peas. Like the first book, this one is filled with unique jobs, activities, roles, and hobbies. But this time the peas are bouncing through the lowercase alphabet! With an exuberant rhyming text and playful pea-packed illustrations, learning the alphabet has never been so much fun.

Editorial Reviews

Baker’s industrious pea-ple are back for a fifth tour, this time delivering an A-to-Z look at work and play. Colorful, digitally textured lowercase letters loom large against white space, cleverly integrated into the action. Firefighters use a ladder truck to train a hose on a small fire high atop the letter F. An S—strapped to the roof of a school bus filled with book-toting students—sports a row of saluting soldiers up on top. Among the standard community helpers, from architects to window washers, Baker inserts a bit of whimsy: there are pirates, a queen, and five "X-Peas" exhibiting their superpowers. There’s some deliberate, anthropomorphized diversity: a violinist is female (or at least has a ponytail) and uses a wheelchair; one soldier appears female (with hair in a bun), and most work crews have some female peas (so to speak)....there’s fun for kids to discover here—from the vegetable horde’s teeming activities to a ladybug that appears on each double-page spread...
Time for roll call of the lowercase letters of the alphabet in the newest title in the series. The wee peas alphabetically explore activities and occupations on full spreads of building-size letters in Baker’s familiar perky colors. The rhymes rollick and the peas cavort around letters that stand for jobs, from the familiar ("We’re golfers on the greens—We’re groomers and garbage collectors—our work is never done") to the likely lesser known ("We’re ichthyologists—we study fish!—and we’re ice-cream scoopers."). Vivid facial expressions and costumes make each pea unique. Jailbirds grimace, and kite gliders fly open-mouthed. Soon after the X-Peas (superheroes) flaunt their powers, the cast wonder, "What will we be now?" The answer, of course, "so many possibili-peas!" VERDICT An appealing option for a lapsit so that readers and listeners may leisurely investigate all the pea-ple.
