Orange Juice Peas by Lari DonJessie is learning to be polite. When she says 'thank you' it sounds a bit like 'DA HOO'. When she says 'please' it sounds exactly like 'PEAS'. One tea-time, Jessie and her older brother Ben are left with a new babysitter. When asked what she'd like to drink, Jessie replies, 'Orange juice peas', and that's exactly what she gets! Followed by 'milk peas', 'water peas', and on it goes. Each time, Jessie fishes the peas out of her drink and cheeky Ben giggles, as the pile of peas on the table grows bigger and bigger...This is a hilarious story for young children, with a great sense of repetition. Lizzie Well's bright, expressive illustrations perfectly capture the humour and Jessie's increasing frustration at being misunderstood.
'The cheerful and individualized characters, bright surroundings and patterned fabric-collage effects make for winning pages ... This provides both a fairly high cute factor and hard evidence that big brothers tend to be the same everywhere.'
'The story is accompanied by soft illustrations of adorable, rosy-cheeked children whose facial expressions clearly convey their feelings of frustration, amusement, and confusion. The large, clear type makes the book a good choice for one-on-one sharing.'
'What a lovely book to encourage language play. Ideal for reading aloud, this story will keep children laughing and amused, and wanting to pronounce their pleases and thank yous correctly, just in case they get something they did not bargain on.'
'Our children laughed and laughed over this book and I loved the depiction of how young children talk and interact.'
