If you teach a career unit in kindergarten or preschool, LMNO Peas is the perfect book for you. Keith Baker combines occupations and avocations with learning the letters of the alphabet.  His conduit for this information is a humorous group of green peas who guide the reader through the alphabet. For example, K is represented by kickers, kayakers, and kings. Baker's funny illustrations show an Elvis-like pea singing in a castle. If only he had added Priscilla Prespea in this illustration, but I digress.

LMNO Peas would be a great source for creating an alphabet book with your class. You could brainstorm different jobs and place them in an Alphabox. Then students could illustrate a picture showing that job or hobby.
