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.
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.
The books contents are really cute though. I wasn't familiar with them but they were a recommendation to me. They are drawings and aren't particularly overly colorful but the story's are great and teach cute lessons. My daughter (4 months) seems to really enjoy them and they do keep her attention with the pictures.
I would buy these or recommend them for others!
