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.
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,
Mother Hubbard on the stairs, I spy the three bears,
Three Bears out hunting I spy Baby Bunting,
Baby Bunting fast asleep, I spy Bo Peep,
Bo Peep up the Hill, I spy Jack and Jill,
Jack and Jill in the ditch, spy the wicked with,
Wicked witch over the wood, I spy Robin Hood,
Robin Hood in his den, I spy the Bears again.
Three Bears still hunting, they spy Baby Bunting,
Baby Bunting safe and dry, I spy Plum Pie,
Plum Pie in the Sun, I spy everyone
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.
I really like the way there is something for the kids to find/do with each page, but just one thing. We keep moving, but they are engaged.
I also felt like all of the drawings were charming and memorable. This will be a new go-to gift for new parents.
