As a kid, Each Peach Pear Plum was one of the first picture books that I read in Kindergarten. It was a favorite of mine at the time, but for some reason it isn’t particularly memorable in my internal catalog of awesome children’s picture books. BUT, each time I happen to pass by a copy at the library my heart does a little leap for joy as I am reminded “Oh yeah, this one!”
I’m pretty confident that Each Peach Pear Plum is one of the books that everyone in my generation read in preschool and kindy. It brings back feelings of nostalgia and the pure joy of reading for fun we all felt as kids. I adore books that rhyme and that invite active reader participation so the thought of getting to search through the beautiful illustrations to play a game of “I spy” while reading the sing-song verse will always give me butterflies..that is, if I happen to pass a copy.
