Four Words = A Clever Book

November 9, 2017

I’ve always enjoyed Emily Gravett’s books. I recently came across one I hadn’t seen before and fell in love with its creativity.

Orange Pear Apple Bear is an excellent read-aloud for the very young. Emily Gravett repeats the title’s four words throughout the book until the last page where she adds the perfect illustration and word to end her story. Orange, pear, apple, bear are arranged in varying order and in different scenarios. The clever simplicity of this book will keep readers engaged as each page turn reveals illustrations done in pencil and pastel watercolors in an imaginative setup of bear, fruit, and words. Gravett’s genius in art and wordplay make this a fun story to read over and over.

Check this out and the many other books from award-winning author/illustrator Emily Gravett.
