Each Peach Pear Plum by Allan Ahlberg

Recommended by Mrs Osman

Age 0-4+

Each Peach Pear Plum introduces characters from well-known nursery stories, such as the Three Bears, Mother Hubbard and Tom Thumb, and encourages children to participate and to find the characters hidden in the pictures. The text, with its strong rhyme and rhythm, is perfect to read aloud to very young children, while the game of ‘I Spy’ keeps children enthralled.

When I think back to my child hood this book springs to mind. I loved finding all the characters and joining in with the rhyme.
