“Colin isn’t at all like Lee and the other peas.” “He is much too tall and much too orange.”
Lee and Colin are so different. Lee is a pea: little, round, and green. Colin is a carrot: large, rectangular, and orange. All of Lee’s friends are peas, except for Colin. Not only does Colin not look like Lee and his pea friends, but he cannot do many of the things peas can do like roll or bounce. However, Colin can do many things the peas cannot. Will the peas accept Colin for who he is, even though he is not the same as them?
These simple illustrations in this story of friendship and acceptance make detecting round peas as different from orange carrots fun for those just learning shapes and colors, and funny for those already in the know. This title is best for birth through preschool and readers who are learning about being accepted and accepting.
