My daughter discovered this book at the local Barnes and Noble, and I'm very glad she did because the title did not catch my attention at all.

As the book's description explains, the story is about a young boy with a vehement dislike of vegetables at dinner. Tonight is Tuesday which means peas, and the book shows the boy eyeing his peas suspiciously and then touching a single pea, ever so slightly, to his tongue - which is like dinner at home whenever there is something new to try.

My favorite children's books are ones that capture my daughter's interest through the story and illustrations, and especially those that encourage her to act out the story as she reads, with gestures and voice inflection. This book fits that perfectly, and after reading it my daughter asks questions like why the boy reacted as he did, or why the parents made little side comments throughout the boy's drama.

Every trip to Barnes and Noble meant finding this book so we could read it together, so now we've happily added it to our collection at home.
