Carrot and Pea: An Unlikely Friendship
Lee is a round, green pea. Colin is a tall, orange carrot stick, and he does not look at all like Lee and his other friends, who are peas. He cannot do a single thing that the peas can do, like roll, bounce, and play hide-and-seek together. (Colin would be very easy to find, being an orange stick surrounded by little green peas!)
How on earth can a pea and a carrot be friends when they are obviously so very different?
I think the pictures in this book are cute. Although the pictures are simple and do not have a lot of detail, I feel like that is part of what makes them go so well with the story. I love the smiley faces on the peas, and I like the bright colors of the illustrations.
There are not a lot of words in this story, either. But I like that the words match the pictures – they are simple, but have a nice message, which is that even “people” who are very different can still be very good friends!
