Each Peach Pear Plum – book review

Each Peach Pear Plum By Janet and Allan Ahlberg

IMG_5375[1]

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!
