Presenting the amazing, stupendous Tender Tiny Peas!” cries the pea in the top hat on Ivy Louise’s high chair tray. As the voices of Ivy Louise’s unseen parents encourage her to eat her vegetables, the little girl is delighted by the roly poly peas and their feats of grace (high dive into Ivy Louise’s cup), strength (weight-lifting with Oatey-O’s), and silliness (an impromptu clown act). Their final act of extraordinary daring is accomplished with Ivy Louise’s help, as the peas pile up on her spoon and are launched through the kitchen window. “All gone!” © Cooperative Children's Book Center
