When he was born, Little Pea was tiny. Teeny-tiny. 

His clothes were hand sewn by his mother and his shoes were hand-me-down doll shoes. As he grew older, Little Pea enjoyed climbing tomato plants, driving around in his wind-up car and riding on the backs of grasshoppers. But then Little Pea started school. And he suddenly realized just how small he was. Too small for his chair. Too small to play the flute. Too small for gym class. What would become of wee Little Pea?

My Thoughts: 
Little Pea was born teeny tiny. So tiny he could sleep in a match box. He had grand adventures and never even realized how small he really was until he started school. His desk was too big and he was too small to play with the other children so he spent his recess drawing. His teacher wondered what would become of him. He didn't grow much bigger as he got older, but he did build himself a cozy little home and even found the perfect job! 

The illustrations in this are very cute. I especially loved the full spread pages. There's a good lesson or two as well; that not everyone is the same, and that you can find your place in the purpose in the world no matter who you are, what you look like, or how big (or little) you are. Also that you can find something you love and make a living from it!
