Today’s featured book is Each Peach Pear Plum by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, published in 1978.  The book is almost Where’s Waldo-esque, as each page has someone you’re supposed to look for.  It is marketed on the inside as  an “I Spy” story, so I assume that there was a whole series of these.

Each of the pages has some fairy tale character or characters, and features a rhyming couplet about who you’re supposed to “spy.”  Characters include Tom Thumb, Cinderella, the three bears, Jack and Jill, and others.

This strikes me as a book that young kids will really enjoy, as they will really have fun finding the different hidden characters.

For now, Rose can enjoy the simple rhymes in the book until she shows more of an interest in finding the characters.
