Really cute and fun I remember this from when I was a child and I think that fondness bumps it up to five stars I loved I Spy type things back then and now I can appreciate the smooth flow of the rhyme scheme and the clever illustrations and I just really enjoyed the variety of Mother Goose characters and how their little stories are related I can see why this is a classic My mother read this to both my sister and I when we were little, and to this day both of us can recite it from memory.
☆ Each Peach Pear Plum ½ 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 books.
I read it hundreds of times to my son and can still recite it Each peach, pear, plum I spy Tom Thumb.
Tom Thumb in the cupboard, I spy Mother Hubbard.
Mother Hubbard in the cellar I spy Cinderella.
And 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 illustrated.
It 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 Great little book, was very fun to read to the kids Only problem is, now they re pestering me into reading all the nursery rhymes in this book
