Really cute and fun I remember this from when I was a child and I think that fondness bumps it up to five stars I loved I Spy type things back then and now I can appreciate the smooth flow of the rhyme scheme and the clever illustrations and I just really enjoyed the variety of Mother Goose characters and how their little stories are related I can see why this is a classic Û Each Peach Pear Plum Û My mother read this to both my sister and I when we were little, and to this day both of us can recite it from memory.
This is an absolute classic, and I d be surprised if there s anyone in English speaking countries, at least, who hasn t heard of it, read it and loved it First published the year before I was born, in 1978, it s still going strong, with a wonderful rhyming story complemented by luscious illustrations The text incorporates famous fictional characters Cinderella, Mother Hubbard, the Wicked Witch, Robin Hood, Jack and Jill etc and the pictures add an I Spy game to it Tricky for younger readers perhaps, but in my experience they always find plenty of things to point to in the illustrations to ask what s that Which means this is a book for various age groups, really And when you have to read the same books over and over again to a young audience, it s one of the few that I never get tired of re reading This is one of my all time favourite books Simple, rhythmic words and endlessly engaging illustrations to play with in this best all I Spy books.
I read it hundreds of times to my son and can still recite it Each peach, pear, plum I spy Tom Thumb.
Tom Thumb in the cupboard, I spy Mother Hubbard.
Mother Hubbard in the cellar I spy Cinderella.
And so it goes, through favourite English nursery rhymes and stories Robin Hood, Cinderella, wicked witch, 3 bears till everyone meets in the woods for plum pie in the sun All intricately and beautifully illustrated.
It s wonderful to see that this treasure, first published in 1978, is not only still in print but has been issued as a board book as well as a soft cover, and I ve just bought the board book for my son s first child, Great little book, was very fun to read to the kids Only problem is, now they re pestering me into reading all the nursery rhymes in this book
