Each Peach Pear Plum
Each Peach Pear Plum, by illustrator-author duo Janet and Allan Ahlberg, is a firm family favourite. I read this book to all of my children and I’m sure one day they will read it to theirs.
The lyrical pattern of the rhyming couplets means that even the littlest of little ones will enjoy this book. Pre-readers can join in by successfully guessing the next words. And, by engaging with the text as the book is read aloud, you can use this book to help familiar words such as ‘my’ and ‘little’ to become sight words.
Each Peach Pear Plum can also help to introduce the ‘I-Spy’ game. Look for Cinderella, The Three Bears, Jack & Jill, Bo Peep and other familiar faces. You and your little one can then move on to playing I-Spy with other objects hidden in the the detailed illustrations.
The delightful illustrations are my favourite part of the book! And what makes this 40th Anniversary Edition of this classic so special is the beautiful, limited edition, print you will find inside.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as the Karmels have!
