YOU ARE THE PEA, I AM THE CARROT (Abrams Books for Young Readers)
MERRY CHRISTMAS, SLEEP TIGHT (HarperCollins Christian Publishing/Zondervan)

You Are the Pea, and I Am the CarrotJ. Theron Elkins is a proud father and practicing attorney with many years of rich experience working with and directing programs for middle school age children at a variety of summer camps.  John loves spending time with his family—especially over dinner—and believes that each member is an essential “ingredient.”  Using food as the universally understood language, YOU ARE THE PEA, AND I AM THE CARROT is a children’s picture book about how family complements each other like a perfect recipe.

In MERRY CHRISTMAS, SLEEP TIGHT, Santa returns from delivering presents on Christmas Eve, wondering if anyone has left a present for him. He’s delighted to find a perfect gift from Mrs. Claus in this cozy board book story that blends traditional religious and popular symbols of the holiday season.
