Sweet Pea!

Welcome to the official home of the legumes! Sweet Pea and her friends are so happy you’ve made it here. While you’re exploring the website, sign up for the legume’s newsletter. We’ll send you a printable coloring sheet and information about upcoming publications.


This is a photo of the sweet pea who inspired the author, Justin Meckes, to write the Sweet Pea books. Just weeks after this little one’s birth, Justin began referring to her as his sweet pea. After quite a few more nicknames, he happened to refer to her as a bean. It was on that day that the legumes were born.
