Pickin peas. Land on my knees! sings a pesky rabbit as he merrily eats his way through the pea patch Little Girl has planted.

With a nod to Brer Rabbit, Pickin Peas is based on two folktales collected in Alabama and Virginia at the end of the last century. The lively storytelling voice of Margaret Read MacDonald, matched with Pat Cummingss bright, bold pictures, makes this funny battle-of-wits tale perfect to tell out loud, letting everyone share in the fun of chanting its rhymic refrain!

Little Girl loves peas and has rows and rows of them in her garden. Pickin' Peas would make a great read-aloud book for summer storytimes, especially if kids can get some hands-on experience picking peas themselves in a school, home, or library garden. Note: I received a digital galley of this book through NetGalley.

A perfect read-aloud, this story brims with rhythm and energy. This down-home retelling of a southern folktale features a spirited little girl and the rascally rabbit who eats her carefully grown and tended peas. Little Girl becomes fed up with the rabbit’s appetite for her prized pods, so she captures him, but he’s too clever to be held for long.

So happy to have found this book! One of my kids told me this was the only reason she would eat peas when she was younger. Haha It's adorable, and after loaning it to our elementary librarian, she ordered a copy for our school library. It's catchy, has great illustrations, and a repeating song that you can use the music suggested or tweak to your desires.

One of my favorite read-alouds for elementary kids. It's cute, sing-songy, and fun because (spoiler alert) the rabbit tricks the girl in the end.

Used library book in ok condition. I expected this to be noted when purchasing which it wasn't.

This is a twist on a Brer Rabbit tale... without the dialect... I told it in my granddaughters preschool class and she sang the rabbit's part... really fun!

THE BOOK CAME ON MY GRANDSON'S B'DAY - HE IS DELIGHTED WITH THE BOOK AND THE BOOK WAS JUST AS STATED IN THE DESCRIPTION.

My first encounter with Margaret Read MacDonald was at the National Storytelling Network’s annual conference in Bellingham WA in 2004. She was one of the highlights of the conference.

Her book Pickin ’Peas is based on a couple of folktales. It is the story of a little girl out picking peas in her garden and a pesky rabbit. Does she get to pick her peas without the rabbit’s interference? Do they get along and enjoy the peas? It is a charming story and the illustrations by Pat Cummings are wonderful. The interactive story involves the telling, singing and jumping.

Pickin Peas has won numerous awards. One stands out to me and that is the Tennessee Volunteer State Award which is chosen by children.
At the end of the book, Ms. MacDonald gives the storyteller/reader some tips on how to present the story to their audience. For anyone interested in the craft of storytelling be sure to check out Ms. MacDonald’s offerings. Her website is a treasure trove of information. [...]

Reading the book on the Kindle app is interesting. The formatting is definitely off and the parts that are to be sung end up scattered over the pages resulting in a not so satisfying read. That is not the fault of the story, just the delivery method. If you can “read between the lines” (LOL) you will discover a wonderful tale.

I received a free copy of the book from NetGalley in exchanged for my honest review. Thank you

Pickin Peas is the beautiful retelling of folktale that originally appeared, according to MacDonald, in Southern Workman. This book is meant to be read aloud and acted out in a group setting. The last page gives actions, a tune to use if you want and some suggestions for acting out the song using characters.

A little girls plants peas and waits for them to be ready to pick. She sings as she picks the big peas. She leaves the small ones to get bigger. Rabbit comes along behind her singing his own tune and eats the peas she has left. She catches him and tells him she is going to keep him in a box until all the peas have been picked. Rabbit tricks her and escapes.

The illustrations are cute, but the story itself does not have much to it. It would be cute with young children singing and acting out the story.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and August House to read and review.

Little Girl loves peas and has rows and rows of them in her garden. One day she went out to her garden to pick some of those peas to fix for her to eat. Unfortunately for her there is a sneaky rabbit that likes peas just as much as she does and Mr. Rabbit is filching peas at an amazing pace. Little Girl goes about finding a way to keep Mr. Rabbit out of her garden.

Told in a delightful and easy to read way young readers will enjoy. It is a wonderful story to read to those who have not yet learned to read. Along with some absolutely beautiful illustrations this is a story that readers and those they share this book with will enjoy from beginning to end. Pickin' Peas is based on a 1897 tale from Calhoun, Alabama which is not far from where I live and I have never heard this folk tale. I loved learning something new about my own home state.
