Petunia Pepper's Picture Day - Cathy Breisacher (Picture Book)

Released September 2010

Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

Every year Petunia Pepper has her school picture taken. Her mom "proudly placed Petunia's picture on the piano in the parlor."

In the past, Petunia's had issues ranging from a missing tooth to pink eye. This year, she is determined to come home with a picture everyone will want. With ribbons, nail polish and polished shoes, Petunia's certain nothing will go wrong this year. What happens if the unexpected spoils her plans?

The use of alliteration turns this story into one every household needs! Petunia Pepper's Picture Day is perfect for younger readers. Reading the story out loud allows the frequent "P" words to pop. The story is short enough than a beginning reader will easily power through it, while the story remains lighthearted and enjoyable from start to finish. Best of all, Petunia's story offers a great message that will help de-stress some kids on that dreaded day!
