Colin and Lee Carrot and Pea
Two Hoots Book / Publishers Group Canada
By Morag Hood
Synopsis from Publishers Group Canada:
Lee is a pea. All of his friends are peas; except Colin. Colin isn’t a pea. And so begins the comic story of two very different friends: a small round green pea and a tall, straight orange carrot stick. You’ll be amazed at the fun they have together, and how very useful it can be to have a friend so different from yourself.
Kids are drawn to one another because of common interest or love. It’s others who often cause them to view the differences. That’s the case of two unlikely friends in Colin and Lee Carrot and Pea. Colin and Lee are drawn to each other as friends except Colin is nothing like Lee and his companions. There are obvious differences with Colin but true friends, like Lee, find a way to look for commonalities. Colin and Lee Carrot and Pea is a perfect reminder to kids to choose their friends based on what interests them and not what others deem important.
Additional Reading: Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress.
