Before I had kids, I had an imaginary friendship with Amy Krouse Rosenthal, whose Encyclopedia of An Ordinary Life I found to be so charming and original that I was sure we could be best buddies (I have not contacted her about this, but am pretty sure she’d agree. Right??). Anyhow, it turns out most of you likely knew her already for her immensely creative and entertaining kids’ books. Many of our kids’ first spoken sentences come from the pages of Little Pea, Little Hoot, and Little Oink. We actually have tape holding together several of the pages as they didn’t quite survive our myriad readings. Parents will love the clever opposite day humor of the pea who loves spinach, the owl who loves bedtime and the pig who loves cleanliness.
