Amy Krouse Rosenthal
With illustrator Jen Corace, Amy Krouse Rosenthal has published a wonderful trilogy: Little Oink, Little Hoot, and Little Pea. She creatively talks about simple “chores” kids don’t want to do, like cleaning up, going to bed on time, and eating vegetables, and she writes about them so the “chores” seem enjoyable. Little Oink loves to clean up but his parents always insist that he make a mess. Little Pea loves to eat vegetables but can’t until he has eaten all his dessert. And Little Hoot wants to go to bed early but his parents make him stay up late. All three books are cute and funny and have adorable and entertaining illustrations.
