    This lovely children's book is a fun rhyming hide and seek game featuring favorite characters from storybooks My child loves turning the pages and looking for WHAT THE BLOODY SHIT IS THAT BEAR ARMED? That's not even a grown bear That bear is a child Jesus pond skipping Christ is he just wandering around in the woods with his safety off? He literally just came within a foot of shooting a babyOkay well look I guess the baby's okay I meanthe bearlet shot him out of a tree and he landed in a river but they fished him out and all's well that ends well? That's the real plot Let's look let's try to move on On each page a simple rhyming couplet introduces the storybook character who's hiding You'll need a Boston accent for Cinderella It's great fun to SWEET PONY RIDING CHRIST IT'S THAT FUCKING UNDERAGE BEAR AGAIN AND HE'S STILL ARMED Should we teach him about the safety? Nahhaha look at the bunnies the bunnies know what the fuck is upLook it's a fun book My kid loves it But how many armed bears do you want in these woods?

    Once in a while it is a treat to discover the unalloyed joys of a children’s book Each Peach Pear Plum is pure delight The invitation is simple ”In this book with your little eye take a look and play ‘I spy’”Here goes the first rhyme ”Each Peach Pear Plum; I spy Tom Thumb” The overleaf shows an abundant pear tree a plum tree and a peach tree and tiny Tom Thumb snugly resting on a branch reading a book The next “Tom Thumb in the cupboard I spy Mother Hubbard” Oh I had fun spying And so it goes What a wonderful way to introduce beginning readers to rhymes and a mini universe of fairy tale characters Cinderella the Three Bears Jack Jill etcEach Peach Pear Plum is a classic children’s book and so beautifully illustrated I picked it up at Waterstones on a recent trip to London and intended it as a gift Now I may be tempted to keep it for myself 😊As delicious as a ”plum pie in the sun” this is a delectable 5 starMany thanks to Cecily whose review led me to this classic and who recommended Waterstones

    We have had this in our kids bookcase for almost 20 years It was always one of their favorites and is a great introduction to the I Spy type of books Little ones age 2 and up will have great fun with this book and the illustrations are so cute My kids didn't even know many of the original nursery rhymes but it didn't deter them from enjoying this bookHighly recommend for the 2 and up age group

    A delightfully fun and entertaining way to introduce toddlers to classical nursery rhyme and folklore characters as well as basic rhyming verses Janet and Alan Ahlberg's Each Peach Pear Plum promises and will in all likelihood also deliver hours upon hours of I spy enjoyment and not just of the specific characters presented in featured in the text as the bright lively and descriptively detailed illustrations might also and repeatedly be used for additional object searches such as getting children to locate various types of fruit animals furniture crockery and the like And further with slightly older children parents caregivers librarians could and should also consider using the illustrations of Each Peach Pear Plum for independent oral storytelling activities and practice for encouraging youngsters to create to make up their own descriptively fun tales and anecdotes about Tom Thumb Cinderella and the other nursery rhyme and folklore characters mentioned and depicted illustratedMost highly recommended and honestly if someone is indeed and sadly offended by the fact that the Three Bears are carrying guns and going hunting please do note that no animals are either shot at or killed and that the image of Baby Bear tripping and causing a stray bullet to dislodge Baby Bunting and his crib can always and easily be used for a bit of a discussion regarding potentially unsafe and dangerous types of behavior can always be used as a teaching and learning moment

    This is an absolute classic and I'd be surprised if there's anyone in English speaking countries at least who hasn't heard of it read it and loved it First published the year before I was born in 1978 it's still going strong with a wonderful rhyming story complemented by luscious illustrations The text incorporates famous fictional characters Cinderella Mother Hubbard the Wicked Witch Robin Hood Jack and Jill etc and the pictures add an I Spy game to it Tricky for younger readers perhaps but in my experience they always find plenty of things to point to in the illustrations to ask what's that? ; Which means this is a book for various age groups really And when you have to read the same books over and over again to a young audience it's one of the few that I never get tired of re reading

    This is one of my all time favourite books Simple rhythmic words and endlessly engaging illustrations to play with in this best all I Spy booksI read it hundreds of times to my son and can still recite it Each peach pear plum I spy Tom ThumbTom Thumb in the cupboard I spy Mother HubbardMother Hubbard in the cellar I spy CinderellaAnd so it goes through favourite English nursery rhymes and stories Robin Hood Cinderella wicked witch 3 bears till everyone meets in the woods for plum pie in the sun All intricately and beautifully illustratedIt’s wonderful to see that this treasure first published in 1978 is not only still in print but has been issued as a board book as well as a soft cover and I’ve just bought the board book for my son’s first child due in two weeks I know it’s a bit early but a baby can never have too many books

    This is a beautiful book On each page there is a small rhyme about spying a character who you then need to find in the illustration on the opposite page They are familiar characters; the three bears Cinderella Robin Hood etc so it ties in nicely with traditional bedtime stories The illustrations are as fabulous and detailed as you'd expect from the Ahlbergs Lovely for reading to very young children and getting them to spot the character and I'm sure that in years to come it'll also be a good aid to learning to read Highly recommended
