2 classic kids books from Janet & Allan Ahlberg
Peepo! is set in the 1940s, giving us a nostalgic look at a time gone by--complete with tin baths, coal sheds and hot porridge. The family life described is happy, warm and loving. The illustration style is suitably 1940's and also very full. The verse often refers to objects hidden deep within the illustration which children will love seeking out. (Ages 1 to 5 years.)
"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.
