"Each Peach Pear Plum. I spy Tom Thumb!" In this engaging, interactive book for the very young, familiar nursery-rhyme characters such as Mother Hubbard and Baby Bunting sneak their way into the gentle drawings. Even young children who might not know all the fairy-tale stars can find them lurking in the cupboard, on the stairs, or deep in the woods. In the happy finale, the whole cast meets up for plum pie in the sun, where the little one on your lap will gleefully find everyone. An American Library Association Notable Book. (Baby to preschooler) --This text refers to the School & Library Binding edition.

I was introduced to this book during my language arts class for elementary education majors. Our wonderful professor read this book to us as a read aloud experience. All of us being adults was abosolutely fasinated by this book. We were all trying to find the charatcers on each page and each one of us fell in love with this book. This book is so much fun but it also gives young children the chance to learn how to read by hearing the rhyming words used throughout the book. I have read this book to several children and I cannot express to you enough how much each one of them love this book. Please purchase this book!!!!!!!!! I insure you it will be a treasure for your child and you as well.

I am in college right now, and my mother called me up a few days ago to ask me if I could order "Each Peach Pear Plum" for her "adopted grandson." I immediately went back to my childhood, reminiscing about how this was always my very favourite of all books. I mean, I GREW UP with this thing. Whenever my mom and I would go to the library when I was little, I would ALWAYS HAVE to check this book out, so finally in 1985, when I was 5 years old, she gave me my own copy, and I've cherished it ever since. I learned to memorise every line, and to this day, I can repeat the entire story from start to finish without even thinking twice!

Format: Paperback
This is a book that I was first introduced to during an English lesson during my PGCE course. After just one reading I have had to go out and buy my very own copy.
I was in awe of the magical combination of rhyme and illustration.
The rhyming text is based aroung a game of 'I spy'. There is a lot of rhyme and repition which is very appealing to young children.
The book is cleverly crafted to incorporate many well known fairytale and nursery rhyme characters and your job as the reader is to spot them!
The Rhymed verses give youngsters clues about who they can look for in each beautiful picture.
The book is a wonderful way to introduce children to the world of rhyme and with a second reading the children will be joining in with you.
As a basis for classroom work it could be used in many different ways. The children could be encouraged to create their own 'I spy' stories with hidden characters to fool the reader.
'Each Peach Pear Plum' is an excellent example of the joys of picture books, it is simple and fun yet intricate and detailed.
I challenge you to be unswayed by its charms.

Format: Paperback
I would recommend this book to children of all ages although mostly for younger kids. It is the sort of book that little ones can often recite along to and it is well written. I myself loved it as a child and still recite it whenever i feel the need.
I would recommend it if you are considering buying this book. Do not read on if you do not wish to 'sample' the book.
Each Peach Pear Plum, I spy Tom Thumb
Tom Thumb in the cupboard, I spy Mother Hubbard,

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ulyyf on July 7, 2008
Format: Board book
This is a good book of a few rhyming couplets featuring fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters, perfect length to catch the attention of a young child - and enough detail in the pictures to keep the attention of an older one!

For those people who are concerned about this sort of thing, there are some references to "the Wicked Witch" (she's not shown being any more wicked than anybody else, and she eats pie with her neighbors at the end. Wicked is just her name, I guess) in the book, and there are also a few images of the three bears being very careless with guns while hunting. I don't find that this hampers our enjoyment of this book, but if these are sensitive topics for your family, you may want to check the book out of the library before committing to a purchase.

Format: Board book
This is a cute book that has a great deal going for it. First it has wonderful, sweet artwork -- though the one reviewer is correct, there are guns pictured on several pages. Then there are the fairytale characters (Tom Thumb, Mother Hubbard, Cinderella, 3 Bears, Baby Bunting, Bo-Peep, Jack and Jill, a Wicked Witch, and Robin Hood), and the I-spy aspect which children tend to love.

Certainly my just turned 4 year-old son and nearly 6 year-old daughter like this book and they haven't tired of looking for the characters yet.

One of the things I like is that there are some `tricks' to the spying. You don't see all of Mother Hubbard for example. You see her from behind, partially hidden. Similarly you see Cinderella's arm with a dust brush, not all of her until the next page.

The following is an example of the rhymes:

Mother Hubbard down the cellar

I spy Cinderella.

Cinderella on the stairs

I spy the Three Bears

Bo-Peep up the hill

I spy Jack and Jill

Four Stars. Good art. Good fun.
