I've given "The Little Pea" book as gifts before, but finding this set was truly a gem!
All three books are sweetly written and the illustrations enhance the story. Plus, the child friendly cardboard-like pages will help keep these books in better shape for many years to come.

These books are absolutely adorable! I looked around for the Little Pea book for my 6 month old because I had seen it elsewhere and loved it. Then I stumbled upon this set from Amazon and thought it would be a great XMas gift. These 3 books are absolutely darling and have cute little lessons in them. I can't wait until my son is a little older and understands what I'm reading him. But for now I just entertain myself!

I bought this set after hearing Little Pea at the library - I thought it was such a cute book & I immediately came home & looked it up. I'm glad I decided to buy the whole set because my son (2 1/2) absolutely LOVES these books! And has since he was about 18 months old. Little Oink was actually once of the 1st books he specifically requested to read - I asked him what he wanted to read one night & he said "piggy". A year later he still frequently says "I wanna read piggy". It's a good thing that I also enjoy these books as well because he requests them A LOT!

Little Pea is a pea who has to eat candy for dinner each night & he hates it!
Little Oink is a pig whose parents want him to make a mess but he just wants to be clean & tidy.
Little Hoot is an owl who just wants to go to bed but his parents make him stay up and play.

They are all basically the same story, but with different characters & different "problems", but despite the repition, they are very cute & I doubt any young child is going to be bothered by that anyway. They're all pretty short, the illustrations are really nice & kind of fun (there's lots of fun little details that my son likes to point out to me as we read - like the different animals hiding in the background), & the board books are nice & sturdy. Also another thing I love about these books is that each story has some sort of counting involved & Little Pea also lists the days of the week. My son enjoys counting along with me or by himself on those pages so I feel like that's an added bonus. All around, I just really enjoy these books & I'm very glad I bought them.

I bought these books because I am a fan of jen corace's artwork and I was really bored reading the same board books over and over to my daughter. the books themselves are attractively packaged and published, the box is cute and the books themselves feel a little bit higher quality than other board books we have (heavier weight, glossier pages, etc.).

I was originally drawn to the books because of the artwork and it doesn't disappoint (I know, I know, horrible pun--sorry!). the illustrations are nicely done--cute without being insipid.

and on to the complaints... my first complaint is that the books are rather repetitive. basically they are all the same plot, just from a slightly different direction. they all even seem to include a silly little pun on the last page "they owl lived happily ever after" vs. "they all lived hap-pea-ly ever after" (or something very similar). I think if I had just gotten one of the books, instead of the set, it would have been better. one book would have seemed cute and nicely done--all three together seem a tad unoriginal. my other complaint is that little pea, little hoot, and little oink are all boys. I know that may seem like a silly complaint to some, but to have a set of three books like this and to have them all be about male characters and to all pretty much share the same plot...

I bought this set of books for my daughter as a baby. I think they are adorable, although she never was too interested in them. Perhaps it's because the illustrations are a little less vibrant than other books.

Little Pea is about a pea that doesn't like to eat candy- he likes to eat vegetables, despite his pea parents trying to make him eat candy (because apparently that's what peas have to eat)!

Little Hoot is about an owl who doesn't like to stay up late and wants to go to bed early, despite his owl parents trying to make him stay up.

Little Oink is about a pig who likes to play house and keep things tidy, despite his pig parents making him mess things up and get messy.

Overall, I would recommend this set. I'm hoping my second child likes these books better than my first did because I love them!

I know these books have NOTHING to do with the potty, but my daughter likes to read them while sitting on the potty. The small size makes them easy for her to hold, and the simple illustrations hold her interest. She can't read it yet, but she likes us to read them to her. Out of the three, her favorite is "Little Pea". I think it's illustrations of the candies that Little Pea has to eat that makes her want to revisit the book over and over. Text is a little wordy on some pages for a toddler, but mine will listen to it. The plot of all 3 books is fairly the same, with different situations (eating dinner (Pea), bedtime (Hoot) and clean-up time (Pig)). I think the familiar pretext of the plot is nice for toddlers, since they'll know what to expect.
