I must say this book is nothing too special to the average reader, but for me, it opened up a whole new world in first grade. I was not a reader until I was made to read this book. My mother made me march back into my classroom since I had "forgotten" a book to read over the weekend. My teacher insisted that I take the book she had read to the class that day, in which was "Eat Your Peas Louise".

I love this book. It is very entertaining for children, involving a very strong lead character and imaginative scenarios. The story is about a little girl that is being told she must ‘eat her peas’ by her mum, a very relatable and real scenario for many children. Immediately children are excited by the story.

This is a great book for emerging readers. It is alo filled with many sight words that they also listed in the back of the book. This book had a very nice rhyme scheme and could also be geared towards a lesson on teaching your students to be polite and have manners.

"Eat Your Peas, Louise" is a story about a brother trying to pursue his sister to eat her peas. Through all his struggle he finally gets his sister to eat her peas by the end of the book. I liked this story because I think I'd would be a great book to help introduce children to rhyming and reading fluency. It would have to be used for beginning readers of course because of its easy read text. It also comes with a word list at the end and is great for teaching nutrition.
