Shante Keys tours her neighborhood at New Year's in search of black-eyed peas, and meets up with neighbors who celebrate the new year with different food traditions rooted in their countries of origin. A charming story with a tight rhyme scheme, this is a great introduction for kids to various cultures, and adults may be struck by just how many words rhyme with "peas."
