Eat Your Peas Daughter by Cheryl Karpen

Beautiful work of art inside and out! I was pleased with the feel of the pages and the cover as no expense was spared with the luscious stationary paper and textured cover.

Eat Your Peas Daughter is described by the author as "a 3-minute celebration." This book will become a keepsake gift from mom to daughter. I cried tears of joy just thinking about a daughter receiving and keeping this book from her mom or dad (and possibly passing on to her own daughter one day). This book would be perfect for the unborn baby too as it is screaming "hope chest."

Each pastel-shaded page contains affirming statements as well as either a pea pod, flower silhouettes or curlyques on the opposite page. The verbiage is plain and direct but the simplicity in which the statements flow is precious.

Psalm 139 was included which was very special as seeing this Scripture verse confirmed to me that this book truly would be a great baby shower gift. The one page a man and woman held a baby and the caption was, "When you were first placed in my arms, I had no idea what wonders awaited me." Interestingly, the man is holding the baby with the woman leaning over his shoulder. Therefore this book could also be from daddy!

The title Eat Your Peas Daughter was explained by the author in commentary at the back of the book. In the P.S. author Cheryl Karpen explains, "My mama always said, "Eat your peas! They're good for you." The pages of this book are filled with nutrients for your heart. They're simply good for you too!"

One criticism I had was that though this book is designed to be read in three minutes, I was disappointed how quickly I read it. I would have loved to have basked in that pastel, positive place alot longer!!

I also wish I had a daughter to give this book to or even have been given this book by my own mom or dad. I truly enjoyed reviewing this book. I recommend this book for everyone to buy to give to their daughter!

If the rest of the Eat Your Peas series is as amazing - The French Peas in Veggie Tales may need to be re-cast as The French Ears of Corn...
