Orange Pear Apple Bear (Classic Board Books)


Orange Pear Apple Bear (Classic Board Books) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Destined to become a contemporary classic, this book has spare text and sweet illustrations but contains only five words: andlt;iandgt;appleandlt;/iandgt;, andlt;iandgt;pearandlt;/iandgt;, andlt;iandgt;orangeandlt;/iandgt;, andlt;iandgt;bearandlt;/iandgt;--and andlt;iandgt;thereandlt;/iandgt;. Emily Gravett creates clever variations on this theme by rearranging the words--on one spread, a brown bear juggles an orange, apple, and pear; on another spread, there is an orange-colored apple and a pear-shaped bear. Simple and compelling, children will enjoy reading this book over and over again as they learn many different concepts.
