Terrific Children's book. Helps children be observant. Provokes conversation.

Very simple rhyming book about finding the various nursery-rhyme and fairy-tale characters hidden around. Eventually they all meet up to have plum pie.This book is well suited for babies and young preschoolers. It's probably a bit simple for older kids, though.

Genre: FictionMedia: Water color & inkReview: This is a simple book on fiction. It tells rhymes that go with well known fairy tail characters. However, it does tell a story and the plot is simple and loved, because it is with such well known characters.

This book unfolds through nursery rhymes. Included in the book are previous characters from nursery rhymes that children may be familar with. This book is simple yet interesting for young children because as the pages turn, more and more nursery rhyme characters are revealed.This book is not my favorite but I can see where a child may like this book. Its simple yet common theme seems to catch children's attention. I do not think I would use this book in my classroom but at home I would say this would be a good book for kindergarteners.

A beautifully illustrated rhyming "I spy" book that makes you very hungry for plum pie! The rhymes will help children learn the sounds of words and patterns in the sounds. Searching for and finding the characters will help children differentiate between objects.

Beautiful cover and very detailed illustrations are found in this fun picture book reminding me of a wallpaper or painting that you could look at for hours and keep finding new things. The book is somewhat of an ¿I Spy¿ as the text indicates something to be found in the accompanying picture. The book also mentions fairy tale characters children would recognize from their original stories.

An absolute classic from the Ahlbergs, Each Peach Pear Plum combines an I-spy game with a perfect rhyme for reading aloud and familiar characters from popular fairy tales and nursery rhymes. Guaranteed to hit the spot!

A fun book to read and hear! Interactive, but not overwhelming and great rhyming. Highly recommend.

This is the perfect book to read with young toddlers. There are not too many words on a page, it rhymes, and there are hidden things to "spy" on each page.

kids love to join in the telling of this story and the illustrations are bright and amusing

It's so refreshing for me to find that an older book such as this one, filled with charming nursery rhyme characters, has been a favorite for both of my young children. It was especially popular for them between the ages of 18 and 30 months, although both my children enjoyed reading it from as early as 10 months, and up to about 4 years. As it's a british book, it has never been hugely popular or well known in the States - for this reason, I love giving it as a gift. It is always a hit!

This was my favorite book growing up. As an adult I've been searching for this so I can introduce it to my own children, but couldn't remember the title. Once I tracked it down I ordered 2 copies just to be on the save side.

Yes, I love this book, too. Truly beautiful and entertaining.
