Janet and Allan Ahlberg are the award-winning author-and-illustrator team of Each Peach Pear Plum. This board book version of the best-loved picture book will charm its young readers with a rhyming text and lots of familiar fairy-tale faces.
On each beautifully illustrated page are characters such as Mother Hubbard, the Three Bears and Tom Thumb and there's tons of fun in store as readers have to find where each one is hiding. This would make a lovely gift for toddlers aged 1+.
I loved this as a child and now my son loves it too. It has lovely pictures with lots of things for little ones to find.
Excellent first story -
Baby has loved this book on so many different levels, she loved finding tiny animals in the pictures long before her first birthday and now rhymes off the story as she approaches her second!

We love this book - it is one we already have in our collection and I have enjoyed reading over and over numerous times before, but it's nice to have a board book copy of it too! The story contains lots of favourite nursery rhyme and storybook characters, so it feels familiar immediately. The "I spy" idea is great and really popular with children. It engages their interest in the book straight away.The illustrations are delightful, lots of detail allowing the child to spend plenty of time finding the character. The illustrations and style of 'Each Peach Pear Plum' are very characteristic of other Ahlberg books such as 'Peepo' another classic in our opinion. The text is interesting and has a lovely gentle rhythm to it.This book was first published in 1978 and it's easy to see why it is still so popular. It's definitely a book that every child should have on their bookshelf. We would give this 5/5 every time.

One you can remember -
I bought for my daughter and the pictures are so bright! The rhyming story is great and my daughter loves trying to find the different characters. We got it when she was about 6-9 months and now she's two, it's still a firm favourite.
Every child should own! -
Amazing book! All my children love it! The only flaw is that they don't print larger-sized copies of the book to fully appreciate the beautiful and funny illustrations!
