Orange Pear Apple Bear
Publisher: Macmillan Children's books
Orange, Pear, Apple, Bear; these four simple words make up this delightful picture book (until the very last page) and provide ample inspiration for its charming illustrations. Following her success with Wolves, Emily Gravett returns with this picture book for pre school children.
Her colourful yet sparse illustrations cleverly depict a bumbling bear interacting in many different and imaginative ways with the fruit mentioned in the title.
The rhyming and repetition in the text make this a great book to read aloud; the gently humorous illustrations will provoke discussion and undoubtedly appeal to parents and children alike.
