Each Peach Pear Plum – book review

Each Peach Pear Plum By Janet and Allan Ahlberg


Clever, fun and catering to many ages, this book is a MUST-HAVE!

It features a repetitive rhyme that brings in all of your favourite nursery rhyme characters.  AND you get to play ‘eye spy’ on each page, looking for one of them.

So get it out for:

– the under ones for some good exposure to rhyming words (great for later preliteracy skills) and interesting pictures to look at

– the 1 year olds, again for some good rhyme exposure and vocabulary building – you can just point out all the common items on each page

– the 2 and 3 year olds for some ‘eye spying’, or even finishing the rhyme for you (‘I spy the…’).  You can talk about which nursery rhymes the characters come from or ask many questions such as ‘I wonder if Jack and Jill liked the Wicked Witch?’ or you can predict what you will be looking for on the next page by the mini picture above the writing (eg. the 3 bears’ porridge bowls…find the three bears)

Here are a few sample pages!


can you see the three bears..?

About heidelightful

Hello friend! I am a paediatric speech pathologist and health coach. My vision is to create a world where parents can understand the real link between diet and their child's health and behaviour, and know how to create true health for their family. My two young, wonderful and sensitive sons both have food intolerances and have also taught me about my own, that I have never known about until now! Topics I have looked into for my own family's health and also from my role as a speech pathologist with children with picky eating are food intolerances, fussy eaters, creating healthy eaters and eating to prevent and ‘cure’ childhood issues such as ADHD, autism, eczema/skin issues, trouble sleeping, low immunity, frequent snot/ear infections and bedwetting, to name a few. I write many posts coming from being an exhausted mum trying to keep up with fussy boys who can only eat certain foods and also as a professional who has worked with other children with similar issues. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Australia with my husband and two boys and was previously an exchange student in Brazil! I hope to inspire you to help your child achieve their potential through health and well-being. Thanks for stopping by :) Heidi
