This is a series of rhyming couplets, each with corresponding pictures. For example; the book opens with “Each Peach Pear Plum, I spy Tom Thumb.” The corresponding picture shows lots of peach, pear and plum trees; hidden in one of the trees is Tom Thumb. This introduces children to rhyme, but also to perspective and looking beyond the obvious.

It would be interesting to read this book to a small group of Foundation Stage children and ask them to find the relevant person on each page. In addition, due to the rhyming structure and repetition of words, it would be useful for a KS1 student to read this to an adult and point out the person indicated.
