I like how this brings all the characters from all the different nursery rhymes together but in a modest and not radically revisionist way, like it's just trying to add to what's usually seen as a completed canon rather than lampoon or profane or radically overturn it. Honestly, the only reason I didn't score it higher was the part with the Three Bears out hunting and their guns almost hitting Baby Bunting and I just don't think we should be all fun and jokey about gun accidents like we're watching a tower of cans teeter in the grocery store or something.

Loved it, especially having to look for the people or things! ( )

This book has some lovely illustrations and a nice rhythm, but if the child doesn't recognize the character they will lose interest. ( )

Each Peach Pear Plum is a great story to read because it is an eye spy book. Eye spy books are great for children because it engages them into the book and allows them to get involved when asking if you can fin something in the book. This book starts off with trying to find Tom Thumb, than it moves onto finding Mother Hubbard, and than finding Cinderella and so on. There are many different kinds of fantasy books that are intertwined within this certain book. While intertwining all of the other fantasy books within the story it allows each child to also remember all of the other characters in the fantasy books that are brought up within (Each Peach Pear Plum).

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 014050639X, Paperback)

"Each Peach Pear Plum. I spy Tom Thumb!" In this engaging, interactive book for the very young, familiar nursery-rhyme characters such as Mother Hubbard and Baby Bunting sneak their way into the gentle drawings. Even young children who might not know all the fairy-tale stars can find them lurking in the cupboard, on the stairs, or deep in the woods. In the happy finale, the whole cast meets up for plum pie in the sun, where the little one on your lap will gleefully find everyone. An American Library Association Notable Book. (Baby to preschooler)
