This book was so cute I can't wait to try it at storytime. I really liked it's message of uniqueness. A little pea sets out to find himself and returns to the pod decorated with all sorts of pieces he borrows from other creatures.

Al little green pea wants to be different from all the other peas in the garden. He goes through the world appreciating unique features of those he meets-a tiger's stripes, an elephant's nose.... When he nestles into the ground, he is a seed after all, there is suspense to see what will emerge in the spring. Surprise!
A light look at those who yearn to be different.

La curiosità di leggere i libri per l'infanzia banditi dai difensori dei bambini. La sensazione che si ha è che si spinga l'infanzia all'omologazione ed al pensiero unico. un racconto semplice e fantasioso come solo i bambini potrebbero immaginarlo nella propria innocenza stravolto a fini politici e fatto messaggio di dietrologia e ottusa stupidità.

This is a book about a pea that doesn't want to be like the other peas in the pod so he embarks on an adventure to discover himself. I enjoyed this story and the illustrations. My daughter seemed to enjoy this as well. We both enjoyed the ending. Worth reading.
